Camper Life
Beam Campers travel through their day in a variation of social groupings. Cabin groups are comprised of no more than 13 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 about 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 Sunday’s Domain Fair.

Beam’s 1:3 staff to camper ratio makes it possible for all campers to be supervised at all times. All activities begin with a thorough discussion of safety precautions and procedures. Protective eyewear and clothing is required when working with hand-tools. All Campers that want to swim must pass a swim-test administered the second day of camp by our red-cross certified lifeguards.


We have a full-time staff nurse with us at camp who keeps and administers all camper medications. Frisbie Memorial Hospital and Barrington Urgent Care, fully-equipped and Emergency-ready facilities are within twenty minutes of camp.


Beam meals (both vegetarian and omnivorian) prepared by our staff Chef are varied, tasty, nutritious and balanced. We will purchase local, organic products whenever possible. We also utilize produce from our own on-site garden located in the camper village.
