BREWSTER DAY CAMP          Newsletter August 9, 2020        Vol. 39 Issue 15
  
Dear Brewster Day Camp Family, 

Week 6 is one of the most exciting weeks of the summer! The buzz and energy around camp is palatable all week long as campers and staff gear up for our Olympic Day.
 
BDC's Olympic Day is an all-encompassing tradition, from cultural exposure and sportsmanship to teamwork and competition. Our typical tent groups break up into different country teams, which rotate each year to give campers exposure to new countries and cultures. This mix of groups gives campers the exciting opportunity to work side by side with campers of all ages throughout the various aspects of Olympic Day.
 
Olympic Day begins with a lighting of the Olympic Torch and Flag Ceremony, led by each country's President and Vice-President, who are a selection of the oldest campers at camp who have demonstrated strong leadership and CHGs&P throughout the summer. Following the Flag Ceremony, each country marches to the MUGS Field for the Donning of Colors.
 
After a morning of spirited competition and teamwork, our Olympic Day teams spend the afternoon learning about the rich history and culture of the country that they represent. This learning experience culminates in my personal favorite part of Olympic Day, when teams teach the rest of camp about the country that they represent through creative songs and skits.
 
At the end of the day our Director team calculates all of the scores from the various competitions and performances, and the winning country is presented the Olympic Day Trophy! BDC's Olympic Day tradition is one of the most immersive Special Event Days of our season, making it one of the most popular and exciting amongst campers and staff.
 
This summer, what country will you learn about? What competitions will you create? Share your Olympic Day with us via social media when you set your own personal record!

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


Daniel Michel
Director
