STARTING to learn anything takes a leap of faith. That is especially true in our environmentally friendly swimming pool! Campers learn to trust their swim instructors and then they START to relax which is when true learning STARTS!

We STARTED something new....would you like to know more? Go here.  
Hello BDC Family and Friends,

The START of most races begin with a bang and the rowers or runners or swimmers speed to the finish line. In the camp world, we START more slowly; a little bit more quietly. We know that producing an excellent camp each season is more like running a marathon, than a sprint.

October is the month that we truly START preparing for next season. (Notice the new 34th Season logo to the left!) At BDC, we START by thoughtfully evaluating last summer and we share many conversations: What made last season so special? How did we do that so well? What can we do better? How can we make that activity even more interesting? Who will be the best person to accomplish that goal? These questions and many, many more are all part of what is going on right now in our offices, via email, phone meetings, and in-person gatherings.

Camp, like schools, have the unique opportunity to START fresh each season. We look at what worked well and what needs some time and attention to make it even better. We value your feedback as part of that process.

The Brewster Day Camp 2014 Season Survey can be found here
and will only be live until this Sunday at midnight on October 5th. Thank you to the 100 or so folks who have already shared their thoughts with us. We really appreciate your comments!  And we look forward to more... 

I hope that the START of your Fall season is as fruitful as ours. I am, wishing you...

One of the moist challenging parts of making a Gimp lanyard is STARTING! Thanks to the nimble fingers and patience of many adults on our campus this past summer, hundreds of campers STARTED their own Gimp projects! What challenges do you face when you START something new? 

"WEAR" IN THE WORLD IS BDC?!  Special thanks goes to Sailors Hill Head, Lindsay Law who came up with a new eWAVES feature idea. Each month we will post an image of someone from the BDC Family wearing some camp apparel while out exploring the world! Pictured above is Associate Camp Director, Martine Knights, on a hike in the hills of Colorado. Please send us images of YOU or your friends or family exploring the world wearing your BDC gear!  Thanks in advance...
