We believe that the challenges that lie ahead for all of us require comfort with change, aptitude for adaptability, sensitivity to resource management and fluency for collaboration with a diverse group of people. We believe that children can best learn to address these challenges by engaging with adults, the Beam Guides who make a life and living from pursuits that require invention, design, planning and production: artists, architects, engineers, craftspeople, teachers, designers, chefs, musicians. We believe that children are at their boldest and most receptive to exploring and enjoying activities relating to these challenges in a beautiful, outdoor, community setting.
Every week, each camper chooses to explore a new Domain, in-depth, hands-on, discovery activities in the arts, sciences, athletic or cultural fields. They work closely with a Beam Counselor or visiting genius to explore disciplines, techniques or projects in smaller groups. Each Domain pursues learning, making and experimenting with personal goals and products in mind, rather than a single gigantic one.
