Summer Camp & Outdoor Education Centre

Welcome To Camp Summit! Located in the beautiful Upper Squamish Valley of British Columbia, Camp Summit is an outdoor adventure and traditional overnight camp facility offering various programs for youth and adults. 

At Summit, we offer a co-ed Summer Camp experience for campers aged 4 - 17. With a variety of program options, campers can attend Camp anywhere from 3 to 5 days or one or two weeks depending on their age, interest and comfortability. Children from across Canada and all over the world come together to appreciate the outdoors and indulge themselves in an experience they'll never forget.

Outside of the summer months, Camp Summit hosts a full service Outdoor Education Centre where we we work with a number of elementary, secondary and post-secondary schools as well as various corporate and private retreat groups.

We are committed to enriching the lives of young people through experiential education and adventure. At Summit we offer campers the chance to embrace new challenges and gain confidence, while fostering friendship, self-esteem and fun. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Camp Summit!

Summer is just around the corner, and I'm sure everyone has a few questions.  Well, fear not, because the 2017 Parent and Camper Handbook is here to answer all of those questions. 

The Parent & Camper Handbook is full of information that will help you and your camper begin to prepare for their time at Camp, including details around transportation, letters home, dietary alternatives, medications and much much more. We hope that you will read this package thoroughly with your camper so that you are both prepared and comfortable with the routines and expectations of Camp.

For the LOVE of Camp Fundraiser

23 Jan, 2017

You’re invited to Camp Summit’s 3rd Annual ‘For the LOVE of Camp” Gala Dinner and Fundraiser on Saturday, February 25th, 2017, at the Squamish Valley Golf & country Club!

Treat yourself to a fantastic evening of delicious food, dancing, exciting silent auction prizes and great company to help send children in our community to camp this summer!

The camping experience is transformative: it teaches cooperation, understanding, acceptance of others, sportsmanship and an environmental ethics in a safe and supportive community. We have always felt that no child should be precluded from experiencing camp due to an inability to afford the registration fee.  

Our goal is to send 10 children to camp this summer with 100% of our event proceeds going directly towards achieving this initiative. It is our hope that through this fundraiser we will  be able support a camper through their time at Camp Summit until their family no longer needs assistance - the more local children we can provide this for, the stronger a community we will help to sustain.
