Remember a few short months ago when we were so WARM that we could wear only a swim shirt and trunks at the beach? This WARMTH will return..we promise!

How much WARMTH can four smiles generate?!
For those of you who read these eWaves each season, you will remember last year's Cranberry Pie. Well, this year's was even prettier AND we are including the Michel Family recipe below. It's supper simple to make....and what could be WARMER than sharing a slice of delicious homemade pie! 
I add a little more cranberries - it's Cape Cod, after all!

WARM cranberry raisin pie filling heating on the stove....now go make it! It's sooooo good. 
Oh yeah...summer WARMTH is on it's way!   
Hello BDC Family and Friends,
At this time of year, we in New England lament the fact that it is nearly pitch black at 4:00 in the afternoon. As I write this note, a slushy mix of rain and snow is presently oozing from a heavy grey sky - a wintry mix - as they said on the Weather Channel this morning! Cold. Dark. Damp....

WARMTH seems to be an apt theme for eWaves this month. Both a physical as well as an emotional salve, WARMTH is something for which we human beings all long. Especially at this time of the year, some of us become harried and stressed with end of the year pressures as well as holiday preparations.

I hope that this email will remind you to share your WARMTH this month. Bundle up, wear toasty sweaters, dig out your favorite slippers, and drink lots of WARM tea. Make a yummy pie, share a hug or just a smile. Slow down and sit by the fire talking with a friend or a dear family member.

As the days continue to grow shorter this month until the Winter Equinox on 12/21, embrace the dark and share some WARMTH. In my humble opinion, this is the essence of the Holiday spirit for which we all run around looking in stores and online. Sharing WARMTH costs very little so you can have a lot!

Wishing you all the WARMTH of this season as well as...

BDC NOW: When thinking about this month's theme of WARMTH, we (Rob and Misa) decided that we needed to photograph ourselves outside with our WARM hats, gloves, and winter coats. In the camp world, we rarely get to see each other clad in our winter wardrobe. Happy EVERYTHING this month, as we in the BDC Winter Office wish you and yours, a WARM Holiday season!

 Embracing the warmth of community...

Early in the morning of November 30th, our neighbor, the Cape Cod Bible Alliance Church, was destroyed by arson. Fortunately, no injuries were reported
during this 3-alarm fire.

Our thoughts are with the CCBAC community
during this difficult time.

At camp, the WARMTH of a gifted BDC Staff member can make your day as well as your life. Thank you BDC staff for all that you do! In early January, we look forward hearing from you all about BDC'13!

Making art together with found objects from nature is one way that BDC campers create a feeling of WARMTH between each other. 

good cheering!
Wishing you and your family
