Bringing Lindy Hop to New England since 1995!

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.

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.

Frankie Manning Foundation's Ambassador ProgramBeantown Camp has been working the last few years with the Frankie Manning Foundation’s Ambassador Program. So far there have been 6 Ambassadors who have attended Beantown, and for some it has been a life-changing experience. Beantown would like to help past scholarship recipients come back to camp. There will be no fee for camp registrations, however, funds are needed to cover expenses such as housing, meals and travel.

If you would like to make a contribution, you can do so when making your camp registration. (Can be done separately as well.) Any amount would be much appreciated!

This collection will not be associated with any other organization. All funds will be used directly to cover expenses for past FMF Ambassadors.
