Welcome to Cheakamus Centre

Established in 1969, Cheakamus Centre is an overnight environmental education facility located on 420 acres of ecological reserve near Squamish, BC. The Centre is owned by the North Vancouver School District and offers a wide variety of experiential environmental programs to children and adults from the Sea to Sky corridor, Metro Vancouver, and beyond. Our renowned overnight field school and cultural programs include nature-based and outdoor activities tied to the new BC curriculum. Program offerings also include youth leadership, recreation, and other hands-on experiences intended to instill in young learners a sense of respect and appreciation for the natural world.
