Beantown Camp

In tribute to Frankie Manning and in celebration of his 100th birthday this year, Beantown Camp 2014 will be dedicated to Frankie and all that he gave us. Frankie was an incredibly special person and we were honored to have him be a part of Beantown for many years. We are grateful that so many people got to meet him, take class with him, hear his stories and Shim Sham with him. We’ll always cherish all of the wonderful times and remember his warmth, spirit and that infectious big laugh. Frankie really could light up a room as he spread joy everywhere he went. As we keep Frankie in our hearts, we’ll endeavor to carry on his legacy as best we can.

Frankie and Julie at Beantown Camp 2007We were very fortunate to have Frankie join us many times at Beantown, starting with year two in 1998. One of the things planned is a display of photos from over the years of Frankie at Beantown. If you are a past attendee from that time and have Beantown photos of Frankie you can dig up, we would really appreciate it!

Any format is fine (RAW, JPEG, TIFF, Adobe Lightroom Catalog, …) and the higher the resolution the better. Either email them or let us know and we can send you a Dropbox folder invite.

Email your Beantown Camp photos.

Frankie Manning Foundation's Ambassador ProgramThis will be the 3rd year that Beantown Camp has been involved in the Frankie Manning Foundation’s Ambassador Program. It has been a wonderful experience for both Beantown and the ambassadors and we are looking forward to meeting this year’s recipients. In addition, we would like to help previous recipients return to camp this year as most of them do not have the means to do so on their own.

Beantown will be providing the camp registration at no cost, however, there are expenses that need to be covered including housing, meals and travel.

If you would like to make a contribution, any amount would be greatly appreciated! All funds will go directly to cover expenses.
