BREWSTER DAY CAMP          Newsletter    July 9, 2017        Vol. 36 Issue 11
Hello Brewster Day Camp!
INSPIRE. This is a simple word with heavy meaning. This past week, I noticed INSPIRATION floating around campus, creating harmony between each activity. After observing camp, it is easy to recognize how INSPIRATION makes the world go 'round. This summer, we have campers from eleven different countries. I am amazed to think that different aspects of our camp can INSPIRE these campers and they can bring that INSPIRATION back with them to their home country.

INSPIRATION comes in many forms; one may feel inspired by watching someone or doing something. This Friday is Creative Arts Day, a day where INSPIRATION bounces from artists, to campers, to staff, and on to families, and beyond! After our Friday morning assembly, local artists will join our campus for the morning and INSPIRE campers and counselors with their watching/doing/listening activities. We look forward to current and returning staff wearing their artist hats and INSPIRing us all.
You can find INSPIRATION anywhere you go! How does your camper INSPIRE you?

PS: Is you camper not yet enrolled or do you want to add more time to your existing schedule?

There are really three parts to the creative process. First there is inspiration, then there is the execution, and finally there is the release.

Sailors Hill campers <3 BASE!
Quiet time at BASE is good for the soul.

An inspiration - a long, deep breath of the pure air of thought - could alone give health to the heart.
