2023
Beekman Rec is thrilled to be offering device free, outdoor camp experience this summer.  We are excited to continue our tradition of offering fun and friendship for children! The goal of the camp program is to provide campers with unique, safe and engaging experiences that spark creativity, encourage friendship, build self confidence, and make life long memories! Scroll through our photo albums on Facebook  to see some of the fun we've had in previous summers!



The "NEW"  Camper Form must be submitted in its  entirety and approved prior to registering for any camp session.    Once the forms are approved you will receive a receipt for a "2023 Camp Membership"  and then you can proceed to registering your child on the dates listed below.  THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS!  We recommend you do this right away so that when registration opens, you will be ready!  See more details below about how to register.



Beekman Lake is special? Why?
  • Beekman Lake combines the best part of a pool and the best part of a lake!
  • Like a lake we have fresh water! And it is continually drawn from a creek into the lake!
  • Like a pool, the water is filtered and chlorinated!
  • The bottom of the lake is bulldozed and cleaned each spring with new stone and sand spread, so there is no muck or weeds!
  • Like a lake there is a sandy beach which the campers LOVE to build and play in during their beach time!
  • The morning beach period is available for lessons by Red Cross instructors for the youngest campers as staff availability allows.
  • The afternoon is free swim and sand play for all campers!

Day Camp Activity Locations
  • Camp Drop off is in the Pavilion at 9:00am
  • Rain or Shine! Beekman Day Camp will be back to the days of outdoor activity, beach time, swim lessons (Subject to staffing) If there is a severe storm we will utilize the Community Center or Pavilion, no need to pick up in the middle of the day.

Drop Off/Pick up
  • We will ask that whoever is picking up child, to please have an ID to show. Staff can change on daily basis for sign out and ALL staff is required to ask. It is for the safety of the children.
