Hey Brewster Day Camp!

We are doing it! We are enjoying camp, each other, and summertime on Cape Cod!

Welcome to Week #8 of BDC'16: Our final session of the season. We have ACCOMPLISHED so much this summer - individually AND together. As we enter our final five days - there is still time to ACCOMPLISH more.  

Like the Olympic athletes competing this week in Rio who are ACCOMPLISHING their dreams of being an internationally competitive athlete, BDC campers are setting goals and meeting those challenges. In the final days of camp this summer, I am excited to see who ACCOMPLISHES what, where, when, and how!

What goals do you have left to ACCOMPLISH this summer? Time is running out - get on it! Joining you in the final sprint to the end, I am as always, sending you...
