Program Description

Beam Camp is a collaborative building and design summer camp in Strafford, NH that works with kids aged 10-17 to make the seemingly impossible possible. Our award-winning program has been featured in the New York Times, Wired, NPR, and designboom, and offers young people the opportunity to cultivate hands-on skills while exploring innovative thinking, design, problem solving and the creative process. Our Project Team works with the winning designers to translate their designs into the camp context. We are looking for visionary ideas that culminate in a unique, ambitious, and spectacular Artwork. Proposals that communicate a clear vision (sketches, diagrams, and other visuals are always helpful) and represent your/your team’s expertise. Projects that allow us to create the majority of the components onsite and from scratch utilize a range of materials, processes and techniques and take advantage of Beam’s facilities, community, landscape, and rural setting.
