Beacon Lodge is a summer camp with programs for children and adults living with special needs. Our camp encompasses 583 acres in Pennsylvania, nestled in the beautiful Appalachia Mountains along the Juniata River. Serene, wooded, unspoiled with natural beauty, and surrounded by some of the most beautiful wilderness areas in the eastern United States, Beacon Lodge is an extraordinary place. It is secluded for those who require peace and quiet but also rugged enough for those who seek adventure. Organized in 1948 to meet the needs of a camp for the sightless residents of Pennsylvania, Beacon Lodge has achieved a far-reaching aspiration…an inclusive summer camp for children and adults with various disabilities!
Beacon Lodge, its staff, and its facilities strive to provide a well-rounded program adaptable to individuals living with disabilities. Our Mission is to give these individuals an opportunity to enjoy a summer camp experience encompassing recreational, educational, and personal growth. We do this by stimulating interests, fostering an appreciation for recreation and learning, and encouraging them to attempt new challenges. We provide each camper with opportunities to build confidence, develop life skills, increase interpersonal relationships, and enhance independence through our innovative activities and caring staff.
