Campers spend their day with a  group of 8-10 children of similar ages and a caring camp counselor. Camp Bells Bend Beaman is unique because of our emphasis on developing independence, a sense of exploration, and creativity in our campers. Each small group, lead by a counselor, will have a set of activities, games, and challenges to work on throughout the day, but their schedule will be very open.

Another special feature of Camp Bells Bend Beaman is our access to thousands of acres of forest and fields!  Our daily schedule is designed around outdoor play and the features of the parks. Engaging with nature has many benefits such as decreased stress, lowering anxiety, and preventing obesity. Our campers should bring rain gear and be ready for new adventures when the rain falls. Our staff will monitor the weather and if lightning or thunder is detected campers will be moved to the pavilions or inside the Nature Center.
