Coming this summer to Lexington, a new summer camp will be the first of its kind in the Commonwealth. Camp Beacon is raising funds to create a summer camp specifically for young people that identify as part of the LGBTQ community. Although February can be cold and cloudy, co-founder Jess Bowman is already planning for the summer. “A lot of us have really great summer camp memories and maybe some of us have some not so great summer camp memories,” Bowman said.
