Beam Camp

Posted on December 26th, 2008, by Steve Hardy in Archives, Miscellany. No Comments

I received a friendly email from Brian, the Director at a cool summer camp for kids and teens called Beam Camp. It’s a 4-week summer program (July 18-August 16) for boys and girls aged 7-17 in Strafford, New Hampshire. They’re looking for some big collaborative ideas. Here’s the overview and how you can participate:

Beam Campers cultivate hands-on skills in the fine and manual arts while exploring innovative thinking, design and the creative process. They transform ideas into artifacts and personal achievement into community success.

Each summer Beam commissions a Project Master to design a unique large-scale collaborative endeavor that campers produce and enjoy. The Project can range from the conceptual to the structural. We are looking for big ideas that will challenge and excite our campers and staff. Our Project Management Team will work with the Master to “translate” the Master’s project blueprint into the camp context.

Here’s the link to their Proposal page, if you’re curious.
