Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are all the summer squads available each session? Does the camper get to pick which theme they want or do they rotate among them? The listed offerings in Camp BEACON are chosen “summer squads” within our camp. Campers will choose an activity and follow that activity for the remainder of the one- or two-week session. For example, if your camper chooses the STEAM Team for Session 4, they will be assigned to “Gearhead Garage” with Jacob as their program leader. Your camper, along with 14 other campers, will do a different activity daily within that content area like learning how to change a tire, RC car obstacle course racing, or building a box car. Youth choose per session and all summer squads are offered each session. Click here for the list of all of our summer squads for Camp BEACON 2019.
  • What do campers do in extended care (how do you keep them off their phones, or not)? We are concerned with huge amounts of screen time as well! We changed up our extended care schedule to meet that need. During our 8-11 AM Camp, we ask youth to sign up for an “Early Risers” camp or “Late Risers” camp based on their usual start time. We keep them pretty busy in the morning in an environment where youth have a product or project that they are responsible for. Click here for our 2019 AM Camps.
  • Is this the first time we have had a summer camp at Roosevelt Middle School? We have had summer camp on and off at Roosevelt for the last few years. Most often we hosted K-12 summer programming at Washington High School for about 380 students. This year we are re-branding with a middle school-focused camp on the sunny side of the Richmond.
