Attempt something NEW this month - be inspired by our oldest girls at camp as they are pictured here mastering the BDOC Challenge Course element called Ring on the Giant's Finger!

Making a NEW friend is one of the best feelings we humans can experience.

Make NEW Friends

 Make new friends,
but keep the old.
One is silver,
the other is gold.

A circle is round,
it has no end.
That's how long,
I will be your friend.


A fire burns bright,
it warms the heart.
We've been friends,
from the very start.


You have one hand,
I have the other.
Put them together,
We have each other.


Silver is precious,
Gold is too.
I am precious,
and so are you.


You help me,
and I'll help you
and together
we will see it through.


The sky is blue
The Earth is green
I can help
to keep it clean.


Across the land
Across the sea
Friends forever
We will always be.


Here's a NEW twist on teaching and learning: at BDC campers share their skills with one another. As we say at camp, "We know we have learned something NEW when we can teach it to someone else!"

Each swim in the pool feels NEW when you enjoy BDC's many pool toys or play with different friends at Free Swim. 
Hello BDC Family,

Happy NEW Year...I am hopeful that BDC is the first to wish you a wonderful day and a prosperous next 12 months!

January 1st is a great time to embrace NEW ideas and celebrate unique ways of seeing your surroundings and your life. My challenge to you this day: In lieu of creating a New Year's resolution (sometimes a burden to successfully execute) think about this...DO something NEW! Do anything, and then see how you feel. Kids are professional do-NEW-ers and we adults are far more out of practice. The very definition of growing is to constantly attempt NEW things. As adults, we so easily find ourselves doing that which feels safe and familiar. I challenge you to drive home a NEW way, make a NEW friend, cook something NEW for dinner, take that NEW job, or sign up for that NEW class.

If you would like to learn a NEW sport this summer, BDC is offering Stand Up Paddleboarding  (SUP) for kids AND adults this summer! Look for more details in future emails about our growing EXTRAs Program for kids and adults at BDC.

Sharing something NEW, I am wishing you...

We had a NEW idea and it's being received like a sunny day in July! BDC's own Taryn VanEselstyn (BDOC Head) was commissioned to create this wonderful map of camp. We are selling the unframed poster,  size 16" x 20" for $20. Email us here if you would like to own one of these fantastic BDC posters! Get them while supplies last. This is a perfect NEW birthday gift idea for a BDC camper or counselor!

BDC NOW: We are excited to share the news that the BDC Winter Office will be moving to a NEW space just a few miles down the road from our present digs! Our moving date is set for mid-January.  More pictures to come when the room looks more like BDC and not simply a big and empty industrial space! 

Look at something familiar (seashells at the beach) and see it with NEW eyes noticing the greens and the blues that you thought were simply grey snails.

NEW-ness and silliness are first cousins. See for yourself. Be silly and feel the NEW attitude flood through your whole being! 
We have heard back from tons of last summer's fantastic staff! In upcoming e-Waves we will list who is officially returning. If you worked at camp last summer and you have not yet been in touch with us, please do so ASAP and no later than January 1st......

or if you are just not sure...email us using this link:

Wishing you and your family
 Courage, Hope, Good Spirit, and Peace!
