    Beam Camp has guided 1000+ campers to cultivate hands-on skills while exploring innovative thinking, design and the creative process. Each session campers and staff build a spectacular large-scale collaborative project chosen through an annual worldwide design competition. Beam Projects have received international media exposure and won major architecture prizes. 

    Beam Campers travel through their day in a variation of social groupings. Cabin groups are comprised of no more than 12 boys or girls of the same age and two counselors. After breakfast and bunk cleanup, campers assemble in their Waves to get ready to work on the Project. Waves are groups of no more than nine campers of mixed ages and genders. For the afternoon Domains, campers are in groups of shared interest, of mixed ages and genders, based on their selection at Sundays Domain Fair. All campers have an option to swim or participate in an athletic activity each day.
