CAMP Rehoboth is a nonprofit community service organization dedicated to creating a more positive environment in Rehoboth Beach and its related communities. The organization promotes cooperation and understanding among all people as they work to build safe inclusive communities with room for all. In 2002 CAMP Rehoboth kicked off their Founders’ Circle Capital Campaign in an effort to raise $1 million to fund the expansion and renovation of the existing community center.
MERJE was commissioned, in collaboration with the architects of RMJM, to create a Founders’ Circle Donor Wall to celebrate the 607 donors who helped CAMP Rehoboth exceed their goal. To showcase CAMP Rehoboth’s celebration of diversity, MERJE designed a multi-colored donor wall using a rod suspension system positioned to hug the multi-purpose room’s curved glass wall. The name of every donor and their donation level, from Member to Founder is engraved onto a colored plaque. From the interior, the translucent colored material allows light to transmit though and illuminate the donor plaques. When viewed from the courtyard, the wall serves as an abstract piece of art, adding color to the exterior space.
