At BDC, successfully being part of a group is one way that we help campers learn valuable life skills. No matter if you are an A's fan or a B's fan, we all work together to make our groups a fun place to be part of camp.

"And suddenly you know: It's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings."

Hello BDC Family and Friends,

This month, the earth tips closest to the sun allowing the northern hemisphere to experience the longest days and the shortest nights. With all of this wonderful daylight, we have an opportunity to clearly see what we wish to COMMENCE. No matter if you are finishing Kindergarten or your BA from college, we are all COMMENCING the next thing. As we lean towards the first day of summer on June 21st, embrace this opportunity to start something new, be bold, get going! Begin again, start anew, initiate, open, lead off, and launch are all synonyms for COMMENCE and that is what we are all doing together this month. With all of the sun's energy so close, this is a perfect time to do it - whatever your 'it' is!

We in the Winter Office are getting ready to let BDC 2013 COMMENCE. We will begin our full-time work in the BDC Summer Office on June 10th. Come join us this summer!  If not in person, then virtually through our weekly eWaves posted every Saturday morning throughout the eight weeks of camp. Look for your next eWaves on June 22 - the first full day of Summer 2013! 

Soon, we will be standing together on the BDC Welcome Walk. Until then, I am wishing you...

BDC Now: Congratulations to all of the college graduates - especially those who work at BDC! Associate Camp Director, Liz Mahoney (pictured left), graduated from college last Friday and COMMENCED her work in the Winter Office on the following business day. Misa (Camp Director pictured right) and Liz eagerly await Assistant Camp Director, Rob Glancy's arrival back from his ten day trip to India. A dozen years ago, Rob and his closest college friends dreamed of COMMENCING this pilgrimage to the homeland of one. Safe travels all. See you soon on Cape Cod!
