Camp Bells Bend & Beaman - Adventure Day Camp - Nashville, TN

Welcome to Camp

Please, call us at 615-856-4772 for any questions.

We will be happy to assist you!

We believe that time spent outdoors focused on imaginative play helps children grow in confidence, creativity, social intelligence, and grit.

Camp Bells Bend Beaman is an outdoor adventure camp located in two of Nashville’s most spectacular parks. Dividing their days between Bells Bend Park (Monday-Wednesday) and Beaman Park (Thursday-Friday), campers spend an entire week reveling in the beauty and joy that nature has to offer.

Camp is for ages 6-12 and runs Monday-Friday 9:00 am-4:00 pm with options for extended hours and shuttle service from East Nashville. Children will spend the day outdoors, engaged in play and education and increasing their appreciation and respect for nature. To encourage independence and creativity, the schedule and activities remain flexible. Through their time at camp, kids develop confidence, grit, determination and valuable social skills – all the while getting sweaty, muddy and stronger!

The Great Cook-Out: Once a week, campers at Camp Bells Bend Beaman will have the opportunity to cook their own lunch over the fire! To foster a sense of community, all kids and counselors will bring different ingredients and the group will cook and eat together-family style. From fire-roasted hot dogs to Dutch oven baked beans to classic s’mores, the possibilities are endless. The kids will learn the basics of campfire cooking all while enjoying the delicious fruits of their labor!

Camp Bells Bend Beaman is one of the summer camps offered by Leadership Academy in June. Join the fun in July at Camp Two Rivers.
