Welcome to Camp Beausite Northwest!

Camp Beausite Northwest (CBNW) is a place where everyone has the opportunity to be all they can be in an inclusive and welcoming residential camp environment. Our annual offerings include weeklong camp sessions during the summer and weekend respite programs during the rest of the year. We serve youth and adults with special needs ages 7-65+. CBNW is a proud certified respite provider and we work hard year round to be able to provide the camp experience and respite opportunities for over 350 campers and 1000 caregivers annually. 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. Be sure to follow our Facebook page for the latest updates and pics!

Camp Programs 2021

Due to the continued efforts to keep our campers, staff, volunteers and community safe, as well as the Washington State mandate for the operations of resident camps, we are not running our 2021 summer camp programs.

Please stay updated on registration opportunities for upcoming free at home activities and virtual programs. Additionally, we are hopeful to be able to open our doors for fall weekend programs. Watch the video below where our Executive Director tells us about what to expect in 2021.
