We believe that every child needs time outdoors to play in an imaginative way with nature. This kind of play increases creativity, confidence, social intelligence and resilience.
Camp Bells Bend Beaman offers a day camp experience for Nashville children to explore and learn in beautiful outdoor settings. The camp is a partnership with Friends of Bells Bend Park, Friends of Beaman Park and Leadership Academy, LLC. Camp takes place at both the Bells Bend Outdoor Center and Beaman Park Nature Center. Campers spend Monday-Wednesday at Bells Bend and Thursday-Friday at Beaman Park.
Camp is for ages 6-12 and runs Monday-Friday 9:00 am-4:00 pm with options for extended hours and bus service from Nashville. Children will spend the day outdoors and engaged in play and education to increase appreciation and respect for nature. Activities are lead by caring camp counselors who are college students or young adults who are looking to gain experience in education and recreation professions.
