Welcome to Camp Beausite NW, a week long summer camp for adults and children with disabilities; a place where everyone has the opportunity to be all they can be. Whether you are a camper, a parent/caregiver, donor, or volunteer, there is a place for you at Camp Beausite.
A magical getaway nestled within 50 acres of forest and meadowland overlooking Beausite Lake, this Olympic Peninsula camp offers a peaceful and serene environment sure to enchant campers, families, and lodge renters. Our camp, readily accessible by highway or ferry, is only twelve miles from the picturesque seaport of Port Townsend, Wa., 40 minutes from Bainbridge Island, and an hour drive from Port Angeles. No matter where you are journeying from, your loved ones are never too far away.
Note from the Camp Director:
Camp Beausite may be a relatively small camp, but the impact it has on the people it serves is HUGE. Our campers hate to leave each summer when it is over; and immediately start counting the days until their return. For them it is all of their holidays and birthdays rolled into one. For the parents and caregivers it is often the only break they get the entire year. However, it doesn’t just impact the campers and their families. Our staff, counselors, and volunteers receive way more than they give during their camp experience. And, for our donors it is the opportunity to TRULY MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Thanks to the generosity of people like you, Camp Beausite NW exists!
