BREWSTER DAY CAMP          Newsletter February 1st, 2021        Vol. 40 Issue 4
Dear BDC Family & Friends,  

Happy February! 

For the last eight months, the BDC team has been focusing our work around one central theme, INTENTIONALITY. During this time of uncertainty in the face of COVID, much of our daily routines, "normal" lives, and plans for the future have been constantly evolving. In order to keep ourselves grounded, we prioritize the valuable tool that is INTENTIONALITY. 

INTENTIONALITY is being thoughtful and purposeful in your decisions and actions. Being INTENTIONAL is useful in every aspect of our lives, from our personal lives to our professional relationships. As it seems almost everything around us is constantly dynamic, being INTENTIONAL has helped me remain grounded and stable. 

At BDC, this INTENTIONALITY can be found in our program design, curriculum and PLAPing (Progressive Learning Action Planning), staff training, and community. We are INTENTIONALLY designing a camp program that works within the new framework of our COVID-world, while INTENTIONALLY maintaining our culture and honoring our history. We are INTENTIONALLY hiring staff members to continue to expand the scope and sequence of our curriculum and PLAP in exciting and engaging directions. We are INTENTIONALLY working with local, state and federal resources to directly impact our own future and the future of the camping industry. 

As we move quickly towards this summer, give us a call and follow along on our social media platforms to learn more about the INTENTIONAL design of our new programs for BDC'21!

As the world around us continues to change, you can always count on BDC to share...

Courage, Hope, Good Spirit & Peace! 

Daniel Michel
