Welcome to Camp Beausite Northwest
Camp Beausite NW is 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 55 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 can continue to provide quality camp experiences for those we serve!

Note from the Board President:
Camp Beausite has been providing wonderful and meaningful experiences for adults and children with disabilities for over 20 years. A devoted cadre of volunteers has made this possible. In 2016 we are embarking on a five year program of major physical improvements. These improvements will make year round programs possible. And, being able to be a year round facility creates a new challenge - adding new programs to our already successful summer program. More than ever we will rely on and need to expand our volunteer base. It's a very exciting time at Camp Beausite NW!
