Spring Events at Beechwood

We’ve been busy here at Beechwood preparing for a busy and exciting season! The pool is open and water volleyball season has begun. Remember, anyone can join in the fun, or start your own game. We play during even hours, typically on weekend days.
New Venue: The Brookside Patio is almost complete. This covered area is a large screened porch attached to the main office building. It is a quiet place to relax and listen to the sounds of the water flowing in the adjacent brook, or to gather when the weather may not be cooperating with outdoor activities. It is accessible 24 hours a day from the main sidewalk, the front lawn at the flagpole, and from the cool TV room next to the game room.

Upcoming Events:

Saturday, May 23, 2015 2-4pm: Our annual Memorial Day picnic. The camp provides the hot dogs and beverages. Bring a side dish or dessert to share and we’ll have a large selection of picnic food!
