NEW THIS SUMMER!


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!

Due to lack of parking this season, we will:

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

2. Please follow the directions of the BDC Parkig 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 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 in order 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!


A BRIGHT Welcome Walk greeted our first campers of the season!

Hello BDC Campers and Parents!

Welcome to Week 2 of BDC '15! We are off to a magnificent start this year with sunny weather, blue skies, and BRIGHTsmiles on the faces of campers, staff, and parents alike! 

Each year, we look forward to summer with incredible anticipation and BRIGHT expectations. As I look around our campus each season, I am continually inspired by the joy which I see all around me! 

Sunny smiles. Cheerful flowers. BRIGHT colors. Shouts of joy from campers and counselors, alike. BDC is officially in motion here on Cape Cod and we are so delighted!

Whether you are joining us this week or later this summer, we are sending you BRIGHT summer vibes from our campus. See you soon at 3570 Main Street!
