Nurturing and Challenging Children and Families with Courage, Hope, Good Spirit & Peace since 1981!

For info about BDC, go here.
Staff members (from left to right: Ellie Donohue, Kristen Green, and Abby McOsker) are ENERGIZED and ready to show off their painting skills during Camp Set-Up Week!


Due to the ongoing construction of our neighbor, the Bible Alliance Church, the parking lot of the church is unavailable to families this summer. Join us as we meet this new challenge and continue to make our parking lot a safe place!  


Here are some changes at BDC due to the lack of parking:


1. BDC families may only use our parking lot for daily camper drop off and pick ups. Please use the Hello and Go in the morning as often as you can for quick drop offs.  


2. Please follow the directions of the BDC Parking Lot Attendants in the orange vests who skillfully direct all cars.  


3. Any Camp Office business which can be conducted on the phone or in the person between the hours of 10a.m. and 3p.m. is greatly appreciated!  


4. Parking for Family Swim will begin at 5:00 in our parking lot.  


5. End of the day Popcorn sales are suspended this season however, Popcorn will be offered as a special snack on occasion and sold during the Final Camp picnic to continue to raise money for BDC Camperships.


We will periodically update you with how this is all going! Thanks for your understanding as BDC continues to be a good neighbor!   



Laughter has the effect of rejuvenating and ENERGIZING a group.  Shared laughter creates a feeling of good spirit throughout the staff.  Thanks Tim and the rest of the crew for always keeping us laughing! 

The staff that plays together...can create many ENERGIZING activities for campers as well!

Hello BDC Family and Friends,
Each spring/early summer our incredible Brewster Day Camp staff comes together to prepare for YOU - our campers and our families! Many of our staff are meeting for the first time and ENERGIZED to be a part of the magic of camp. Many more are friends and faces being brought back into focus after a winter spent pursuing the other seasons and successes of our lives. 

I think the greatest part of summer, and sunshine, and camp is that the good ENERGY generated by such positivity which helps create the most wonderful energy in every corner of our campus!

This week, during Staff Training, we came together to learn and grow. I could see (and you will too!) that this staff is ENERGIZED and ready to make BDC '15 our greatest summer yet! 

I am ready for camp and I am so eager to see you on Cape Cod this summer! Stop by and get ENERGIZED...if you are spending your summer elsewhere, find some ENERGY near you!

See you soon on The Welcome Walk!

Moving the Post Office playhouse -- and newly named "BDC Camper Leader Cabin"-- from the Ball Field to the Grassy Hill during Camp Set-Up Week.  Thanks to the ENERGY of a front end loader and some dedicated staff, this move went smoothly!

Getting ready for staff and then campers. Many hands make light work!  We are ready!

Every summer, the work crew is ENERGIZING by re-discovering our summer supplies as they come out of the off site storage locker!

Freshly minted Sailors Hill Head, Kelly Cattano, is a bright and ENERGIZING presence on her Hill. 

Tent Group and Hill Assignments always received much celebration.  Here, we see the positive ENERGIZING effect these announcements have on our staff! 
Our creative BDC Program Staff is gratefully accepting donations of the following items:

Paper Towel Rolls

Old Chess Sets
Small appliances (for exploration)

Please send all donations to the BDC Office.

Thank you!

The magic of reconnecting with old friends is a part of the ENERGY of camp!
