2018 letter to Dos re summer camping

Squamish Access Society often finds itself caught between the legitimate desire of summer visitors to camp close to the climbing and the equally legitimate concerns of residents about the locations some campers are choosing. We would like to see government agencies adopt a coordinated proactive strategy that combines discouragement of camping at sensitive locations with efforts to increase camping provision. The provincial agencies, BC Parks and FLNRO, are actively engaged with these issues but we perceive very little engagement at District of Squamish. We have written an open letter to the District ahead of the summer season on this topic. Read it here.
