WKRKKS Uprald News Service CAMP IMPEESA Heigh- ho for the life at Camp Im- peesa As of old we headed south- west of Cowlcy over the hills to Beaver Mines and on to Castle River Ranger Station, then in on the road to Beaver Mines Recreation Area besides a beautiful lake now much in the news. This is Beaver Mines Lake nestling at the foot of Table Mountain. On one side of the lake is Camp Impeesa looking across to the dam that forms a causeway lo get to the public area. Fishing, boating and swimming are very much in evidence. Along the shores are beauti- ful woods. In summer here arc all the elements that make up a great deal of our Canadian heritage. Deeper in the woods are two Cub Villages each capable of holding an entire Wolf Cub Pack. Each has a large com- fortable lodge with cooking, eating and wash-up facilities, not to forget private quarters for the cooks. Nestled close around are small comfortable floored cab- ins, eacli large enough to hold from six to 10 Cubs. The lower lodge is Tilliciim. Ihe upper Skookum. A winding tree bordered road leads up from the lake past the Water- front Cabin, the parking area for extra vehicles and the cen- tral flagpole. Just out of the sight behind the Lions' Braiding is the Camp Administrator's hideaway, pri- vate, of course, for staff only. The Service Scouts helping run the camp are quartered in the Lions' building. This summer the administra- tor is Raymond Babbs of War- ner, an oldtimer knows how to settle any or all Uie campers in their cosy sites. He is up early getting the water satellite tanks full and safely gathering any overnight garbage out of the way to foil invasion by flies or hears. SINCE JUNE He has been in camp since early June making sure camp fees are gathered and all camp regulations are obeyed regard- ing damaging trees and unsafe campfires. When waterh'nes break, a re- frigerator breaks down or pro- pane supplies fail, he and his Service Scouts get on the job, At present Leonard Gundlock of Warner Is on the job as is Neil Hewitt of Edmonton but formerly of Pincher Creek. Once in a while the three get a chance lo cook a meal, once in awhile they get invilcd oh happy day!
