Where is Camp Squeah?

Camp Squeah is 16km north of Hope, BC in the beautiful Fraser Valley. It is about a two-hour drive from Vancouver. Simply drive East on Hwy 1 (Trans-Canada Highway), use Exit 170 near Hope to remain on Hwy 1, and continue for about 16km. The address is #4-27915 Trans-Canada Hwy, Hope, BC V0X 1L3.

When will the weekend start?

Checking-in will start on the afternoon of Friday September 6th (exact time tbc) to give you plenty of time to settle into your cabin or to get your tent set up if you choose to camp.  The weekend will officially start on the Friday evening with our first worship time together (exact time tbc). We need to be off site on Sunday afternoon, September 8th. (exact time tbc).  A link to the full schedule can be seen here

What accommodation is available?

There are three types of accommodation at Camp Squeah.  You can view the different prices for each option here

  • Comfort Room (in Emory or Fraser Lodges)
  • Standard dormitory-style (Squeah Lodge Rooms)
  • Basic (Cabins)

Families will be allocated their own cabin or room.

There are a few camping and RV sites available, so book in quick if you want one so you don’t miss out.  If you are camping you must bring your own tent and equipment.

For all accommodation options, you will need to bring your own bedding and towels with you.

What meals are included?

No meal is provided on Friday evening, so please bring a picnic or eat before you come.  Alternatively there are eating places nearby in Hope, but they cannot be reached on foot from Camp Squeah, so we would recommend stopping off en route for those.
