We have a reservation at Mamquam River Campground. While there is space for some vans, we ask that folks with cars try to carpool and tent-camp, as there is more room for tents than vehicles!

We'll split the cost of camping, which will vary depending on how many people join. It will likely be between $40-$50 per person for the entire weekend.

There are plenty of great canyon options in Squamish. Classics include:

  • Box
  • Monmouth
  • Brittania
  • Cypress

Check out these on ropewiki.

Make sure your passport is current! You'll need your vax card and a negative COVID test within 72 hours to cross the border as well.

*In the event that crossing the border is not an option, we will re-route the weekend to a canyoning destination TBD in Washington. Possibly the Rainier area, possibly North Cascades.
