BREWSTER DAY CAMP          Newsletter March 1st, 2021        Vol. 40 Issue 5
Dear BDC Family & Friends,  

Happy March! 

Spring is in the air and as the days grow longer, our EXCITEMENT for this summer is stirring.

In the Camp Office, March marks another milestone on our journey to BDC'21. Our hiring is in full swing, our phones are ringing off the hook and our campus shakes off the snow that has fallen to begin making room for the magic of the summer. 

In such a turbulent year as this, EXCITEMENT is a valuable resource. It is one that can be cultivated in many forms and leveraged to improve our today, while looking forward to tomorrow. 

As our BDC'21 team grows, so does our EXCITEMENT for another magical summer at 3570 Main Street. We are full of joy and EXCITEMENT that you may join us again at BDC!

Along with our EXCITEMENT, we continue to share our Courage, Hope, Good Spirit & Peace with you!
