Why Overnight Camp

Sleep away camp or residential camp at Impeesa provides campers with the ability to stay in-residence with other scout youth their age in tents under the supervision of older counselors and remain immersed in their camp experience from the time they arrive to their last day. Here is why we love overnight camp:

  • Campers have more time to adjust to their surroundings and get comfortable while honing the learning and growing
  • Campers get a wide range of recreational and educational activities throughout the day into early evening.
  • Residential camp allows scouts to become more independent being away from family, teaching them to take responsibility for themselves and for others.
  • Campers develop a deeper connection with their self, others and their environment.

Experiencing and trying new activities and adventures from sunrise to sunset allows campers to find a new connection that comes from being outdoors and in nature.
