I never went to camp, but wish I had gone to Beam Camp. Beam Camp was founded in 2004 by Brian Cohen and Danny Kahn to provide children with exciting experiences in creative problem-solving through working with their hands and actively collaborating with others.
Read the description of the Space Station Fort:
Salvage Station No. 8 is an immersive experiential installation that creates a sci-fi narrative of an abandoned space salvage station lost in the woods. Youth crafted finely-detailed props, including intergalactic specimens, faux space gear and an old-fashioned bulletin board for note-swapping among space travelers. Kids also incorporated storytelling and theater to present the otherworldly piece to the outside world.
Beam Camp is a program of Beam Center, a NYC nonprofit dedicated to youth development and learning through creation, collaboration, and educator professional development.
