Beacon Citizen Network (BCN): a place for neighbors to get the word out, be heard and stay informed in all matters concerning Beacon, NY.



City of Beacon Recreation announced the summer 2008 pool hours:
Mon-Fri 11am to 1pm, 5pm to 7pm
Sat & Sun 12-6pm

Does anyone know the history of the University Settlement Camp? I'd be curious to know.

Thanks for the info. It's a very bittersweet story, the land was sold to the parks department just this past January. At least it will remain parkland.

University Settlement is an organization on the Lower East Side of Manhattan that still exists and provides programming for various groups -

The camp was their annual summer camp for underprivileged kids from the city. They have a link on their site giving the history of the camp (click on Beacon Campus under the What We Do section).
