90+ Kids Built This Intergalactic Space Station In The Woods Of New Hampshire

Salvage Station No. 8 envisioned by artist Shing Yin Khor is an immersive experiential installation that creates a sci-fi narrative of an abandoned space salvage station lost in the woods.

Campers ages 10-18 built the station using fabrication skills they learned at camp, including scenic carpentry and painting, interactive electronics, plaster casting and more. Youth crafted finely-detailed props, including intergalactic specimens, faux space gear and an old-fashioned bulletin board for note-swapping among space travelers. Kids 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. Every summer since 2005 we have built amazing projects with kids in the woods of NH.
