WHO WE ARE
Everything we do at Circle Square Ranch is for the purpose of helping children and youth grow spiritually, mentally, socially and physically in a fun-filled and safe place of adventure and challenge. We invite campers to consider what the Bible has to say to them, about their relationship with God, and each other.

Circle Square Ranches were originally created as part of the Crossroads Christian Communications TV program called Circle Square, which aired on TV in the 1970’s. Several children’s summer camps were birthed as a result of an overwhelming response from Canadian public to the show. Although the television program came to an end, several camps are still in operation today.
It all began with one student.
At 25, Howard Guinness heard God ask him to put his medical studies on hold, leave his home and friends in Oxford and sail across turbulent waters for the sake of reaching out to university students in Canada. It would have been easier for Howard to say no, to stay where he was comfortable… but he said yes. And with the help of a few friends, he raised funds for a one-way ticket to Canada.
Through it all, they pursued Jesus with unwavering conviction. And because of the risky obedience that Howard and countless others have shown through the years, we can continue their work today, helping thousands of Canadian students hear God’s call. Almost 90 years later, they’re still saying yes.
