Beam Camp Seeks Ambitious Collaborative Project Proposals for Summer 2011
You supply the plan and vision. We'll supply 100+ energetic campers and staff and 700+ acres of forest, mountain and lakes as studio, canvas and workshop. Submit your proposal today to be Beam's 2011 Project Master.
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.
Beam Camp is a 4-week summer program for boys and girls aged 7-17 in Strafford, New Hampshire. Beam Campers cultivate hands-on skills while exploring innovative thinking, design and the creative process. They transform ideas into artifacts and personal achievement into community success.Teams of campers work on different aspects of the Project each morning. In the afternoons, they participate in /Domains/,unique, in-depth, hands-on explorations in the arts, sciences, athletic or cultural fields.
* Make it big.
* Don't limit yourself to "camp-y" themes.
* Construction can be a central component, but doesn't have to be.
