Due to our remote location, the Columbia Icefield is unique in that all employees of the Glacier Adventure, Glacier Skywalk and Glacier View Inn live on site in staff accommodations. Brewster subsidizes staff housing, with your portion of the cost being payroll deducted.
All of our staff reside in the "Ice Palace", a 100 unit, two-story building. The facility includes coin operated washers and dryers, WiFi is accessible within the common room. Each room consists of two twin beds (they can be fastened together to form a king bed for single occupants or couples) a closet, dresser/clothing storage, table and chair. A limited number of single rooms are available for leaders and night shift staff. Most employees share a bedroom. There is a semi-private washroom between each set of two bedrooms, typically 3-4 staff members share a washroom.
The kitchen and common room are in a separate building. Three meals a day are prepared for the staff and cold food is available 24 hours a day for sandwiches and snacks. The common room offers a large screen satellite TV, pool table, foosball table and a shared staff fridge to keep personal items. We also have a large selection of board games and books to borrow. A volleyball court, basketball court and road hockey space can be found outside and a large selection of trails and hikes just minutes from camp.
