I spent five days at Beam Camp in New Hampshire at lake Winnepesaki last week. The camp is just in its second year — I was there for the first year as well. It is a bit hard to describe, but basically it is an art-focused camp for kids from around 6-15 (?), where each summer there is a major, common, project for the campers and adults to work on, plus the whole range of regular camp stuff. This year’s project was the creation of seven art-vehicles, floats of a sort, which were paraded for the local townspeople and parents on the last day of camp. My contributions came at the very end so really I just helped move them around, assisted Emily with her photo project, and taught some tennis.
