Camp Squeah is a ministry of Mennonite Church British Columbia, located in the beautiful Dogwood Valley near Hope, BC, Canada. It is a childrens’ summer camp and outdoor education centre which is utilized by many organizations throughout the year for conferences and retreats. The diverse and very active summer camp program includes children’s camp sessions that range in duration from 3-6 days, backpacking trips, and junior and senior leadership training camps.

Care for our environment and a ‘challenge by choice’ philosophy for guests is applied to all program planning and activities. Our leadership programs encourage the development of skills from a servant leader perspective. Camp Squeah is a place for children, for students and teachers, for small and large groups. It is a place of renewal, learning, play and retreat.
