Welcome to Camp Beausite Northwest
Camp Beausite NW is a place where everyone has the opportunity to be all they can be. We currently provide a 5-week summer camp for adults and children with special needs. However, we are expanding our facility and program offerings to include week long, weekend, and day programs throughout the year. We also rent the camp out to the public for lodging, workshops, retreats, and other types of gatherings.
Our camp is 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.
Registration for Camp Season 2017 will open mid-January. Please check our registration page then.
Note from the Executive Director:
Such exciting times for Camp Beausite!!! This July we opened our new commercial kitchen for the start of camp. And, we are currently in the process of developing plans for the construction of two bunkhouses, which can house up to 40 people. With the completion of these structures in 2017, we will fulfill our 25-year dream of providing brick and mortar lodging that will allow us to provide services year round. As we expand our facilities, we are also expanding our programs to provide more services to meet the needs of a variety of populations with special needs. Keep tuning in to see the new programs as we roll them out.

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!
