There is my photos ha ha

I had 4 journies to Camsell. The first, everything was almost completely intact, the second the walls where still up, but the place had almost everything gone, the third which these photos are of was when the place had been completely gutted, and the fourth I was only able to get into the engine room and then almost got arrested. Cops let me get away but I lost my 55 dollar pipe.

The photos are not of 'photographic' quality, I just point and shoot.

Funny, I had a lot of plans and old documents ready to go before them piggys got me

Okay so I hit up the Camsell... Was my second time in there. On the south side there was a big hole in the fence so we jumped through that to get in. From there we went to the North-West corner of the main building, and like last time the door was wide open. There was a sign warning of asbestos, but we carried on nonetheless.

We made our way to the roof and hung out there to take some pics:

While we were on the roof I could see a helicopter in the horizon coming in our direction, I doubt it was the police chopper but to be safe we headed back in side. We figured that was enough and started to make our way out. I check some windows as we made our way down, I saw a cop car driving by. By the time we made it out side the cop car was parked on the road to the east of the site. The girl we were with was freaked out and there was no way she was going back in... So our only choice was to head out, and if we got busted so be it.

So we made our way back to the hole in the fence on the south side, jumped through. Just as I made it through there was a SUV coming up from the west. The three of us made our way through the hole just as the SUV was arriving at the intersection we were waiting to cross. It wasn't till the SUV was about 5 meters away that I noticed the K9 security stickers on it. At this point I figured we were done. But I continued to wait for the car to pass so we could cross the road, he slowed down to a walking speed and stared right at us but continued driving very slowly. So we made our way back to the car, then did a lap or two of the place (I was hoping to snap a pic of the cops or the security car. But they were no where to be found.

Was a good time but the girl that came along was so PISSED that we dragged her in there. She was on the verge of crying as we walked through the top floor cause she was so freaked out. I'll give her credit for pushing her limits. But I've got another guy that will be online for the next edmonton meet.

I just hit this place up last night with Team Leader. It was pretty sweet. Anyone whos says there is nothing left to see needs to open their minds a bit.

Some of the floors are super gutted, but others still have all their walls intact, as well as some appliances and such. All of the steam/boiler rooms are pretty awesome and don't seem to have any of their innards removed yet. The basketball court/stage area is pretty sweet too.

I'll post up some pics once I get home from work.

Well it turns out I had access to some of them. Don't be too harsh on these pics, they are the first ones that I've taken with an SLR.

If you look closely on the street corner you'll see one of the groups of kids that came in.

Someone really needs to make a page about this place. It's such an interesting site. A little update:
As of last week the construction vehicles are gone and there's a lot of places in the fence to get it. I did some outside checking around in the afternoon and there's no way to get into the main building from the ground that i could find but I'm going to keep looking. All the outbuildings are gone and the parking lots as well. But since it's going to snow here in Edmonton any day now it looks like construction has stopped for a while, hopefully for the winter. I wandered around in daylight but didn't see any security people...possibly because it was the day.

Report on Global TV in Edmonton last night that City Council has approved plans to change the Camsel into a 550+ Unit complex including condo's, house etc.

They stated that the place has been continuously by vagrants, kids and people breaking in to just see whats left.

They showed a couple pics on the screen of the inside and said they found them on some online forums.

I recognized one of the photo's from here.

Maybe you should charge them a fee.. $50 everytime its displayed on tv and every time the video is watched online.

This place sounds awesome to explore! But I've lived in Edmonton for 6 years and never seen it either! I'd love to go with some people next time if the desire arises to check it out again! If so, I'M IN!!

I wonder what the place looks like now... does anyone know if the legislation went through about putting up housing on the land or whatever they were going to do with the area? In any case, no doubt the place is flooded with extra security after the media attention.

So me and my hubby finally went there, just so we could see where it is, what it looks like, and what the area is like.

And... that... place... is... creepy. A few different people have said that it's a very ominous building, that it feels like all those windows are eyes looking down on you... and it's true... there is a very dark feeling surrounding the whole building. We walked the perimeter of the fence, and found a spot where we think we can sneak under the fence, but I'm actually really freaked out about going in there!!

We took a bunch of pictures of the outside of the building, so I'll post those when I get them downloaded onto my computer, and when we decide a date/time for exploring inside, I'll let everybody know as well.

So was it YOU????

Aparently on sunday the 12th, 2 people had to be rescued by firefighters as they were trying to repel down a rope off the roof of the Camsel and got stuck.


Interesting..... nothing in the papers yet but it was on the news on the bounce just now.

NOOOOO it wasn't us!! We haven't even gone past the fence yet! lol

Lordy, I would have told you guys about it if it were us, although I would be slightly embarassed for needing the fire department to come rescue me!

No, no, no... I'm not sure yet if we're even going to go in there, from the stories I've heard of the asbestos in the place, as well as people getting arrested/fined/charged for breaking and entering and unlawful trespassing. I am currently undecided. There are lots of other places to explore in this city that aren't gonna get my mug-shot on the 6 o'clock news!
