Hello BDC Family and Friends,

LAUGHTER is contagious and we at BDC have been bitten by the bug! This is a wonderful affliction which we at camp embrace with our whole beings!

As we enter Week #4 (Stop! It's going by too fast!!!) LAUGHTER is abundant in every corner of our campus. As I sit here writing this note, I can hear out my office window - the pure joy of adults and children LAUGHING together at camp.

BDC welcomes you if you are just joining us this week on Cape Cod! We promise to make you LAUGH a lot. And when you are done LAUGHING, we will make you LAUGH some more! If you are in need of a good LAUGH, come visit us at BDC or simply go find some silly kids (big or small) near you!

Wishing you an abundance of belly LAUGHS as well as lots of...

You are always welcome to park in the church lot next door to camp during drop off and pick up and use the BDC path near the Art Tent for easy access to the our campus.(The only time during the summer that this is not an option is during morning drop off during Week #5, July 21-25.)
