Camp Bells Bend Beaman

Summer will be here before you know it, and there’s no better place to spend those warm, beautiful days than Camp Bells Bend & Beaman Parks!

Camp Bells Bend & Beaman Parks is a day camp program managed by Leadership Academy, LLC in 
partnership with Friends of Bells Bend Park and Friends of Beaman Park. Along with our partner parks,
the Leadership Academy team believes recreation, outdoor play, and nature education are just a few of the reasons that camp is an unforgettable and irreplaceable experience for campers and staff alike. At Camp, children will connect to nature through play, exploration and learning at two of Nashville’s beautiful parks, Bells Bend Outdoor Center and Beaman Park Nature Center.

Camp is designed to encourage independence, creative expression, and a sense of adventure. We want every camper to fall in love with nature, hone their outdoor skills, and look forward to spending time outside.

What makes Camp special?

  • An open, flexible schedule empowers campers to collaborate with their peers and their counselor to make decisions that will shape their schedule each day.
  • A big focus on outdoor play and explorationoffers many opportunities to engage campers with their natural surroundings.
  • Activities at both parks mean campers experience the beauty and variety of thousands of acres of forest and fields!
  • Transportation and extended care options make camp a great value that’s convenient for busy families. (Learn more here.)

Along with building their social skills and encouraging their emotional development, Camp is the perfect way for kids to reap the many benefits of being active in the outdoors. And it benefits a great cause! A portion of registration proceeds benefit the parks’ Friends groups and support further conservation and education at the park Nature Centers.

Sending your child to Camp Bells Bend & Beaman Parks promises an unforgettable experience of fun, learning and growth. Spaces fill up quickly, so now is the perfect time to register your child. See you this summer!
