The history of The Crossing at Ghost River first began with the region’s Aboriginal people who used a low point in the river as a “crossing”. In later years this crossing connected and aided early explorers, traders, and settlers in many of the same ways. The land, as a whole, has always provided opportunities to connect its visitors with its countless treasures and natural beauty. The land continues to be recognized for its intangible qualities, rich history and natural beauty.
In the late 70’s, The Crossing started its journey as a unique conference and retreat centre, providing a meeting place to exchange ideas and connect with oneself, with nature, and with others.
Nestled within 145 rolling acres set along the picturesque Ghost River, The Crossing offers a truly unique approach to corporate and personal retreats, on-site meetings, special events, weddings and engaging programs. Our rural location is conveniently located just minutes from Cochrane, Alberta and an hour from downtown Calgary.
