Welcome to Camp Impeesa

Camp Impeesa is Scouts Canada’s mountain adventure and wilderness experience centre. With programs and events all year round, the site is used by schools and groups from all over Alberta. In the summer, Camp Impeesa transforms into a weekly residential summer camp for kids.

Located within the heart of the Rocky Mountains, the camp is a true hidden gem in Southern Alberta. Fully renovated and expanded in 2016, summer camp is open to all boys and girls from ages 8 to 17 (no, you don’t have to Scout!) From swimming and paddling, to hiking in the Rockies, to tomahawk throwing, the adventure is amazing. Making new friends around the campfire and sharing stories under the stars will create memories for a lifetime… welcome to Camp Impeesa!
