Beaver Summer Camp in the Boston Globe!

We’ve made the news!  Beaver is highlighted in a great article by the Boston Globe about the evolution of summer camp.  The article includes a cover photo of our campers riding petal carts and features a great interview with our very own Camp Director Nat Saltonstall!

Here’s just some of what Nat had to say about what makes summer camp at Beaver so special:

“Kids need the freedom to take some incremental risks, and I think we can be that place within a larger structure that they might not be able to get at home and in their neighborhood,” Saltonstall said. “We can give the freedom to make choices, play, and engage with other kids…” Some things, he said, will never change: “A good camp should provide kids with skills like independence, responsibility, confidence, and relationship-building.”
