Who we are
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 comfort.
Camp Summit was founded in 1999 by Geoff Park ‘Parky’ who remains the Senior Director to this day. Camp Summit is a private, non-denominational, co-ed overnight camp and outdoor education centre founded on the principals of the Ontario camping movement in which Parky was brought up in. Camp had such a profound influence in Parky’s life that immediately following university he started the camp from the ground up with a goal of providing the same life changing experiences he had at camp.
From its humble beginnings renting small cabins in Whistler with a total of only 40 campers its first year, Parky’s commitment has grown Summit into one of the most highly regarded Summer Camps in BC seeing a return rate of campers of over 92% from year to year and over 800 campers each summer. The senior leadership programs develop strong young leaders from within and a majority of our staff have grown up at camp and instill the values they learned to the next generation.
