BREWSTER DAY CAMP          Newsletter August 2, 2020        Vol. 39 Issue 14
  
Dear Brewster Day Camp Family, 

Each summer, Week 5 marks a very exciting and hands on Special Event at camp, Tie Dye Week! The BDC tie dye tradition has grown each summer since 1985 - the same year that we installed our first swimming pool on campus.
 
Every camper at BDC has the opportunity to design their very own tie dye creations. One of the most hands-on Special Events of the summer, Tie Die Week turns the typically peaceful Art Tent into the bustling epicenter of camp. Our tradition culminates in Tie Dye Day on Friday, where campers, staff, friends and the rest of the camp family join together in a sea of colorful creations at Friday Morning Assembly.
 
This tradition provides children with the opportunity to get their hands dirty, learn about designing, creating, and executing their creations in a safe environment. Most importantly, these creations serve as a reminder of friends made, challenges conquered, and experiences lived during the summer at camp.

I know that I am only one of many BDC alumni that still have tie dye shirts from even my earliest summers at camp. If you still have tie dye shirts from years past, or have created something cool with your tie dye history, please share it with us!


We look forward to sharing all of our Courage, Hope, Good Spirit & Peace...


Daniel Michel
Director

We want to know what campers, parents, staff, and alumni are up to this summer, and we want to share it with the Camp Family!

Please send us 5-15 second videos of the various activities, games, adventures, and all of your CHGs&P. We will be putting together our very first video-newsletter for you to see next week, and we need your help!

Share your summer with the BDC Family!

We have created a brand-new video newsletter for BDC'20...starring YOU! Each week, please send us videos of your family completing the activities that we send you or simply incorporating Courage, Hope, Good Spirit & Peace into your lives. With your help, we will create a weekly video newsletter showcasing all of the magic that you, the BDC Family, is enjoying. Here are some instructions:
  1. To capture video on cell phones or iPads, please turn the device horizontally (landscape). 
  2. 10 seconds of video is the perfect length. 
  3. Your device's microphone is sensitive, so make sure to stand close (under 6 feet) to the person you're filming so that we can hear them. 
  4. Capture a few seconds at the beginning and end of the action to allow us to edit the clip.
  5. Please send us the one best video of your activity. 
  6. Please send us the video unedited, videos with titles and graphics will not be used.

Have fun filming! When you have a video to send us, upload it directly to our BDC dropbox:


Please call or email with any questions or comments!

By uploading videos, you give BDC permission to use this content for marketing purposes on our website and social medias. 
We thank you!
