  • To help support our working parents through the summer weeks, our colleagues put on a show at our first-ever virtual Beazley Summer Camp. The week-long event featured a whole host of live sessions ? developed and delivered by our camp counsellors (AKA Beazley employees). From dance routines, to family fun quizzes, science lessons, books readings and even a virtual petting zoo ? there was something for all ages. Not only that, but we wanted our summer of fun to extend beyond just one week, so created pre-recorded content for our colleagues and their children to enjoy all summer long.
