BREWSTER DAY CAMP          Newsletter    February 1, 2020        Vol. 39 Issue 5
Hello Brewster Day Camp Family,

Happy February! 

The shortest month of the year is a very exciting time in the Winter Office. Applications and enrollment start pouring in, the days are growing longer and this coming summer is ever so visible in the distance. February is a strong reminder of how quickly time flies in the off-season. 

The speed at which life begins to move as we ramp up towards the impending heat of the summer can be difficult, yet thrilling. Let this excitement energize and motivate you! Last month, we focused on self-reflection. We turned inward to SPOTLIGHT our strengths and weaknesses, our joys and our challenges. The short and dark days of Winter sometimes leave me stuck in a rut, reluctant to try something new or ask for help. As the Winter flies by, the moment to take a leap of faith, trust yourself and those around you is now.  Now is the time to take INITIATIVE and act! Whether you are pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone, enrolling in a challenging course, trying out for a new sport, finding a new job, or simply trying something for the first time, take the INITIATIVE to go for it - now is the time!

BDC's 39th summer is growing closer each day so be sure to share your INITIATIVE with loved ones, family and friends by joining us for a Summer full of...
Courage, Hope, Good Spirit & Peace! 

Daniel Michel, Director
Brewster Day Camp

" Life is too short to get bogged down and be discouraged. You have to keep moving. You have to keep going. Put one foot in front of the other, smile, and just keep on rolling. "
