Kids Learning FUNDAMENTALS
Call it the Beam Core Curriculum. These are the tools and methods of making that we think Beam Campers should get to know and practice. Some will come in handy on the Project and some will be of use in their own Independent Projects. Over the course of the session, each camper will participate in 9 hours of each Fundamentals area.
In the first two weeks of the session, each camper, grouped by age and experience level, will take workshops in these areas.
Project & Building: construction, carpentry, metal work, project planning
Computing/Electronics: circuitry, physical computing, coding
Design/Prototyping: model-making, design thinking, digital fabrication
Craft & Materials: textiles, knitting, sewing, ceramics
Kids Discovering SELF-DIRECTION
Beam Camp not only hopes to foster an environment of collaborative building, but also sets aside time for campers to focus on projects that interest them as individuals. A daily Independent Work period gives campers the opportunity to develop self-directed projects supported and guided by staff; older campers have the opportunity to develop personal portfolios.
Kids Making FRIENDS FOR LIFE
Beam Camp is not just a place for big projects, it is also a place for big friendships and big fun. Each day, every camper has the opportunity to swim and take part in athletics and active play. All of the hallmarks of a magical camp experience are available at Beam Camp. Say more here about bunks and stuff like that.
