Bean Soup and More

Camp Pemigewassett offers a number of publications that capture and commemorate the experience of the Pemi summer.

Bean Soup

Highlighting our publications is Bean Soup, an annual publication dating back to 1910. Bean Soup is a comprehensive summary of the every season, written by campers and staff and read aloud every Monday evening at camp. In mid-December, Bean Soup is edited, bound, and mailed to every member of the current camp family, and includes a full camp roster with addresses, a list of the year’s awards, and the full series of weekly newsletters.

For Alumni, archived Bean Soup’s have been digitized. If you are in need of a specific year or looking for a lost article, contact alumni.
