There is no better way to spend your summer than at Beech Mountain’s Camp Buckeye, a day camp for kids 5 to 12. Make life-long friendships and memories while gaining knowledge of the outdoor world on Beech Mountain. Play different sports, explore trails and creeks, visit new places, get wet and wild on our slip-n slide and learn there is nothing like having summer fun on Beech Mountain!

We also offer a Junior Counselor Leadership Program (JCLP) for youth 13 to 16. JCLP is designed to give our teens the skills, encouragement, and tools towards becoming leaders of tomorrow. JCLP participants will assist our counselors while taking part in all activities of camp.
