Welcome to Camp Beausite Northwest
The camp opened its doors (and tent flaps) to children and adults with disabilities in 1989. We are located on the Olympic Peninsula in Chimacum, Washington. The main lodge overlooks Beausite Lake and is surrounded by 50 acres of forest and meadowland.
CBNW campers range in age from 6-70 with disabilities that include but are not limited to Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Hunter Syndrome, Traumatic Brain Injury, Wolf-Hirschhorn and other physical and/or developmental disabilities.
The quality and enthusiasm of our staff is at the core of our success and the reason for the campers’ jubilant return year after year. We have a Nurse Practitioner or Registered Nurse on staff 24 hours per day and we strive to maintain a staff to camper ratio of 1:1. Our staff and counselors participate in training workshops to insure they are fully versed in the needs of our campers and have the skills needed to meet our high standards. All staff must pass a background check and be certified in basic first-aid.
Along with arts & crafts, recreational activities include fishing, swimming, horseback riding and field trips to Fort Worden in Port Townsend. Local musicians, story tellers, and other performers provide evening entertainment.
Our Board of Directors and volunteer base is comprised of dedicated individuals from throughout Clallam, Jefferson, Kitsap, Pierce, and Snohomish counties. Come join us! Register as a camper, apply to be a counselor, volunteer your time, or donate funds, goods or services to the camp. Please contact us. Your support will make a difference in the lives of so many people!
