In response to God who loves and calls us, Camp Squeah provides a place of refuge in a natural setting where people of all ages can build relationships, grow and be nurtured.



Registration for 2020 Summer Camps has been closed

Camp Squeah’s diverse and very active summer camp program includes children and youth sleepaway camps that range in duration from 3-6 days, Go Beyond adventure camps, Junior and Senior Leadership Training camps, and Family Camps.

At Camp Squeah we understand that each child is uniquely made and some are ready to jump into overnight summer camps at ages as young as 6. Our Mini Camps are shorter camps specially designed for kids between the ages of 6 and 9.

Our On-Site 5-Day Camps are for kids and teens between the ages of 9 and 15. These camps are packed full of fun activities. Cabins participate in every activity available and do an overnighter in the woods, sleeping under tarps outdoors. Each day, we also have curriculum skits, Bible study, and chapel time in the evening.

Family Camp includes a 5 day/4 night stay. Parents will enjoy enriching speaker sessions, intentional connection times with one another and of course, lots of time to relax as our staff provide activities for the whole family!

Ladies, 19 and over, if you want to enjoy a little more outdoor adventure with new, or old, friends, try Ladies Go Beyond Camp and build lifelong memories as you explore the best wilderness BC has to offer.

If you are a teen between the ages of 14 and 17, then push your limits at Camp Squeah’s Go Beyond Teen Camp. We invite participants to discover faith and embrace adventure through an extended outdoor experience. Campers will develop outdoor skills in the Camp Squeah backwoods, and then put it to the test on a multi-day backcountry trip.

If your child is looking for a taste of camp without staying overnight, Camp Squeah offers fun-filled Summer Day Camps for kids in the Hope BC and Fraser Valley areas. Our Spring Break Day Camps are also a great option for both kids and teens. All of our day camps include a variety of camp activities, snacks and crafts!

A Place of Refuge

Camp Squeah, in the local Salish dialect, alludes to ‘Place of Refuge’.

Since 1962, Camp Squeah has provided quality summer programs with the aim of enriching the lives of campers through sharing our magnificent natural setting and the deep love of Jesus Christ.

We believe every young person should have the opportunity to experience camping in God’s awe inspiring wilderness. We share with campers, through a Christian perspective, how camp can provide a space for children to discover themselves in a safe and loving environment and that this helps them become confident, mature and fun loving people.
