Standing on a mountain top, climbing on a rock wall, canoeing on a mountain lake, learning how to navigate and survive in the wilderness, having the adventure of a lifetime! Sounds like camp life at Camp Impeesa!

Camp Impeesa is a mountain adventure and wilderness experience centre operated by Scouts Canada. It’s located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies in Southern Alberta, near Beaver Mines Lake and Table Mountain. In the summer months, Camp Impeesa offers weekly residential camps for kids. The rest of the year, the wilderness adventures offered here are enjoyed by schools and groups from all over the province.

Summer Camp

Your kids do not have to be in Scouts to attend Camp Impeesa! It’s open to all boys and girls ages 8 to 17 years old. During camp, they’ll experience a range of super-fun outdoor activities including swimming, padding, hiking, tomahawk throwing, campfires, rock climbing and more. Under the sun and under the stars, your kids will have the time of their lives here. Watch this video to learn more:

Camp Impeesa also offers a Counselor in Training Camp where youth can learn and grow, develop leadership and mentoring skills along the way. The CIT program is for registered scout members only.
