BREWSTER DAY CAMP          Newsletter    July 1, 2018        Vol. 36 Issue 11

Hello Brewster Day Camp!

A little yin and a little yang is a valuable way to live. The notion transcends across different aspects of life. Students must BALANCE working hard with playing hard. Teachers BALANCE learning time with relaxed time. Parents BALANCE routines with unstructured fun. Summertime activity BALANCES us out after ten months of sitting work! 

Here at Brewster Day Camp, we BALANCE learning with fun, active time with chill time, group activities with individual challenges. This week at BDC, the weather was a healthy BALANCE of chilly rain, dense fog, and warm sunshine!

As we progress into Week #2, I am taking a moment and be intentional about the BALANCE in my life. This Friday's Special Event Day is Grad-titude Day where we focus on the simple act of being grateful for all that we have and those that inspire us to be our best selves. Take a moment this week to remind yourself of the people who inspire you to keep moving and also the people who inspire you to take time to breathe. How will you BALANCE your life this week?
