Join our Campfire Beacons

'Beacons' seems to be universally loved as a suggested name (thanks Louise Scrivens!) and has been superbly conceptualised visually by our designer Ian Cuthbert.

The proposed Beacons idea comes out of discussions at Campfire Circle 003.UK. The idea is that they are voluntary teams promoting participation in the keys areas of Campfire and the decision making processes attached to each.

On our beta site, they would mostly be set up as private Projects, only visible to the respective team members. Teams could then progress plans and coordinate via their own Beacon Projects.

Initial suggestions for Beacons :


Ethos : Values, Ts and Cs, privacy, What do we stand for? 

Admin : Company admin, accounts, book keeping

Biz : Planning, company, finance, forecasting

Geeks : Website development , research, issues, software 

Design : Concepts, print, flyers, logos, icons, programmes

Nationbuilder : Our holding site, updates, editorial, mailing lists, mail blasts

Media : Archiving, film & audio recording, transcribing
