What They Say About Us
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!
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.
I just wanted to relay my appreciation for the staff and program at Camp Impeesa. This was my son’s first “longer than an overnight” camp experience and there was definitely anxiety going on. When I picked him up, he wouldn’t stop talking for the 2.5 hour drive home to Medicine Hat. He enjoyed himself so much!! And he is a super picky eater… but all I heard was how awesome “Momma Trackers” food was. I feel compelled to hire her on the spot or at least ask for her recipes. The staff made him feel very special on his birthday (thank you for that) and shows a lot of compassion and patience. Thank you so much for giving him such a wonderful first camp experience. It truly helped his self esteem and confidence.
