What They Say About Us
Our family has been to Camp Impeesa several times and we have all really enjoyed the experiences there. My two kids love Tracker and his incredible bear stories. Having the lake at Impeesa with the spectacular views of the mountain as the backdrop is just marvellous. Children and adults can tell you how refreshing it is to do any of the water activities. The zip line over the lake was a massive hit, and so it is great that it is being upgraded together with the other facilities at camp. My older son really enjoyed the overnight backpacking trips and is looking forward to doing another. The addition of new activities will really enhance an already amazing place.
Camp Impessa is situated on Beaver Mines Lake, nestled between the foothills and the majestic Rocky Mountains in southern Alberta near the communities of Pincher Creek and Crowsnest Pass. I have had the opportunity to attend the three (3) levels of the Senator Buchanan Winter Skills camp at this facility. There is ample room so that each camp activity can operate as if it is on its own in the wilderness, creating a more realistic feel. Due to the lay of the land, the camp is a great area to be able to conduct map and compass work, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, bush craft etc. I haven’t had the opportunity to attend any summer camps there, however, can only imagine with access to the lake it must be a wonderful place for the kids to develop skills like swimming, canoeing, etc.
My kids and I have been going to Impeesa for the last five years… we love the place! With all the new investments and the great location for hiking, climbing, canoeing … its the perfect place for Scouts and Venturers in search of high adventure in any season! Winter camps were super fun — allowing us to learn from experts in a safe environment giving us the confidence to take on bigger and more adventurous challenges each year!
