CALGARY — Sundance Lodges, founded by the Green family in 1992, has been sold to Basecamp Resorts.
Sheryl Green ran the front side of the business including staffing, marketing, reservations and the campground store for more than 25 years. She created the company logo out of construction paper in the early ’90s and used a typewriter to launch the business. In 2018, after her husband, Brian, passed away, Sheryl took on more of a policy role while her kids, Stacia and Ryan, stepped up to run the operations. Stacia took over Sheryl’s duties while Ryan took over the finances, maintenance, infrastructure and a recent expansion of additional trapper’s tents.
Located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies and recently featured on the Price is Right and in National Geographic, Sundance Lodges has become a popular mountain campground destination that attracts visitors from across Canada and around the world. Basecamp Resorts will continue to run and maintain the property as a premium campground destination under the Sundance Lodges name. Reservations for the 2023 season will open starting early April.
“We’ve come a long way. I still remember the day my husband bought our first tipi and told me about his dream to build a campground [and] to pioneer comfort camping here in the Rockies,” says Sheryl Green.
“Offering families and friends a place to make memories while sitting around a campfire, cooking together and disconnecting from the stress of everyday life has been the privilege of a lifetime,” says Stacia Green. “I will miss seeing our guests, but it’s time to get mom retired and see what’s next.”
“The Green family built a truly special destination with Sundance Lodges and we are proud to be able to carry on their legacy of providing a pristine, beautiful place to camp for those seeking to explore the Canadian Rockies and connect with nature,” says Sky McLean, founder & CEO, Basecamp Resorts. “This was a perfect deal as all parties share a love of mountain life and providing travellers with one-of-a-kind accommodations that highlight that love. Camping by the foot of the mountains is an incredible, memorable travel experience and we look forward to welcoming guests starting this May.”
