At BDC, SUCCESS can look like a small group of joyful, connected, engaged boys at play. What does SUCCESS look like to you?
"People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing."  

~ Dale Carnegie 

Making stuff out of recycled materials often creates a SUCCESSFUL experience for campers and counselors. At BDC we know that 'process' is the  second cousin to creating SUCCESS. 

The American Camp Association has set forth it's 20/20 Vision with the goal of helping 20 million kids get to camp by 2020. Two events in early November will help raise funds for camperships to enable more campers to experience the SUCCESS that comes from being at camp. Join BDC in supporting these events:  

November 1st: The ACA New England Section's Second Annual Camp Champions Fundraising event at Fenway Park, Boston, MA. Enjoy a private, behind the scenes tour of the oldest ball park, dinner, silent auction, and more. For details, go here.

November 15th: The Foundation for Family Education Annual Wine and More Tasting with Silent and Life Auction to help support families on Cape Cod. This event takes place at Wequassett Inn in Chatham. More details will follow soon! 

The Camper Leaders, BDC's 14-16 years olds lead by Richard Peterson, spearheaded a campus wide clean up during Week #4 this past summer. Richard is holding the SUCCESSFUL outcome of that effort. It is hard to believe that this much garbage could be found outside of garbage cans on our 4.5 acre campus. How do you see and measure SUCCESS?!

Hello BDC Family and Friends,
This month, BDC wishes you a happy and SUCCESSFUL start to a new year!

With the advent of the Autumnal Equinox last week, October signals the official beginning of a new camp season as we now ring in BDC 2013! Thirty-two years ago, Marcia Galazzi, and some others, took the steps to begin creating the SUCCESSFUL program that we are today. This month we start new files for 2013 in our computer and we turn to Early Bird Enrolling for BDC'13. (See details in the orange box in the left column.) Research now shows that children are far more SUCCESSFUL in school and in life when they have attended a high quality summer camp. (See the link below which highlights this phenomena.)

By all measures, we experienced another wildly SUCCESSFUL summer at BDC. We know this because you told us so! If you were one of the many folks who completed our BDC Survey, we THANK YOU! SUCCESS can be measured both qualitatively and quantitatively. On both scales, you told us that BDC rocks! For those of you who made suggestions to make BDC even more SUCCESSFUL - we heard you and will put your ideas into the works. Rob joins me back in the Winter Office, beginning to make it all happen again..

Wishing you truck loads of SUCCESS this year as well as boat loads full of ....

BDC NOW: Pictured here are misa and Rob, standing near the recently refurbished India Point Park on Providence's industrial waterfront. This beautiful green-way was once a metal scrap yard. Due to the SUCCESSFUL efforts of local residents over the past 30 years, this park now allows people to play and enjoy the northern most tip of Narragansett Bay. What SUCCESS story have you helped shaped? We are actively shaping BDC '13!

Relaxed, calm, and eager are other ways to describe SUCCESS. What words do you use to describe how you feel when you are feeling SUCCESSFUL?

"Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve!" 

Napoleon Hill  

If you want to really see SUCCESS, look deep into the eyes of someone who has just achieved something new. SUCCESS can be a very personal experience and you can see it in the soul! Real achievement is not about earning metals. At BDC we look in the eyes of a children to see true SUCCESS.


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