We are delighted to help you plan for BDC'14!
...Floating in the pool with a whole lot of noodles can feel very relaxing and provide COMFORT on a hot camp day!  

Just being together can often provide the best COMFORT - see quotation below!

When we feel COMFORTABLE, we are free to truly be ourselves. This sense of COMFORT allows us to form long lasting friendships and open ourselves up to others.
"Sometimes, the best way to help someone is just to be near them."

COMFORTABLE camp shirts are a part of BDC's staff uniform. Can you tell which staff person owns this collection of shirts? Email us and let us know. Here's a hint: take a close look at the dates...The winner gets a free camp t-shirt! 
Familiar colors of the season provide COMFORT in their rhythmic return year after year.   

Hello BDC Family and Friends,
As the long nights of December descend upon us this month, I am thinking a lot about what motivates us humans to get up and out of bed instead of simply hibernating through the winter like many other animals! Some folks are motivated by doing the right thing or being helpful to others. Some people are compelled by making money or - on the flip side of that same coin - others are powered by savoring time. Many of us are simply fueled by seeking COMFORT - often in the form of food (see photo of Rob and Misa below!)

No matter what gets each of us up and out of bed during these short days of winter, I hope that you will consider what makes you put your feet on the ground each day! This eWAVES is dedicated to those people who seek COMFORT in these cold winter months.

Soon enough, we will all be back at camp enjoying the long days of sunshine when we can push ourselves outside of our COMFORT zone! For now, join me in sharing all of the COMFORT born of being near family and friends this holiday season.
