Thank you for all your help with our EXPOnenti'Ale celebration last week. You were all a pleasure to work with.
Diane and her team came highly recommended to us. Even so, her catering exceeded expectation. Everyone said it was the best food they had ever tasted at a camp - restaurant quality! Both Steve and Moh were friendly and helpful while on-site, and, although we didn't have the need to call them with issues, we know they would have been more than helpful if we had.
Thank you again for helping us make our 30th Anniversary a successful weekend that will be remembered and talked about for years to come!

Innis and I were married at Alexandra Neighbourhood House, on the August long weekend, this past summer. I'm not sure we'll be successful in finding all the right words to describe how happy we are that we chose this place!

"We wanted our friends and family to feel like they'd come to a great party, had amazing food and drink at a magical place that felt like a beautiful, old summer camp, where they could just kick their feet up or down, and have a ball:) This camp reflected us so very much (we were told over and over) with it's wimsy and fun and beauty and overall feeling of cozy. The cabins were perfect and so quaint, the Longhouse, so accommodating. The fire pit provided for many songs, long into the night. There was so much room for preparation beforehand, and it was wonderful having the beach half a block away too. Many guests wandered over there to sit and watch the stars or go for a swim. We had around 20 kids (infants-teens) in attendance, and this place could not have been more perfect for them. We set up a little bouncy castle, had bocce and badminton, face painting, a crafts room and a lemonade stand. So much room to run and play… kid heaven."

"The Alex House coordinator was so extremely accommodating. We had a very particular aesthetic in mind, and while the camp was already the perfect backdrop, she was so understanding and flexible with all of our requests. We must've exchanged dozens of emails with her prior to the wedding, along with a few visits, and at each turn, she was just so lovely and helpful, full of great suggestions. The catered breakfasts we had were ridiculously yummy and fresh. The cabins, kitchens, bathrooms, bar, hall etc. were all so clean. We had to do no prior work before all of our set up. "
"I can not recommend this place enough. It is so special. I would recommend any kind of event here (we definitely plan on coming back for a reunion!). We will always remember Camp Alexandra fondly."

"The Vancouver Folk Song Society's 2014 retreat was held at Alexandra Neighborhood House on the weekend of Oct 3 - 5. The feedback from participants was overwhelmingly positive, many stating that it was one of the best retreats of the past decade or more. The newly refurbished facility was greatly appreciated. The food was superb. The retreat organizing committee expressed gratitude for the extremely helpful, collaborative spirit of the staff during the many months of planning as well as during the retreat weekend. We are already planning and setting dates for future VFSS annual retreats and looking forward to many more years of working together at the incomparable Camp Alexandra."
