BREWSTER DAY CAMP | August 15, 2021 | Vol. 40 Issue 14
Dear BDC Family & Friends, 

Week 6 was HOT HOT HOT! With temperatures in the high 80's all week and near triple-digit humidity levels, life on our campus last week slowed down. We had walking days - where we ask all groups to only walk throughout the day - and extra times to get in the pool, play water games, and run through sprinklers. Our week culminated in a long-time camp favorite, GOLD RUSH! Our pods competed to collect the most gold around campus while avoiding the sneaky bandits. Congratulations to our BASE TEAM #2 for beating the bandits and successfully collecting the most gold!

Believe it or not, next week is our last week of the summer. Week 7 is a celebration of all of the magic that we have enjoyed throughout the summer at 3570 Main St. As we share our GRADitude for all of that we have been able to enjoy throughout BDC'21, we learn how we can share our Courage, Hope, Good Spirit & Peace with others. This week will culminate with a new special event at BDC, THE AMAZING RACE, where teams will complete challenges, showcasing their teamwork, problem-solving, and sportsmanship skills across campus.

To see a behind-the-scenes look into camp this summer, follow us on social media! We are excited to be live-streaming our Friday Morning Assemblies, Talent Shows, Improv Shows, and Players Performances each week. If you miss them live - you can catch them on our Instagram page and watch them anytime!

Sending you an abundance of Courage, Hope, Good Spirit & Peace!

Mask Wearing
All campers and staff will be required to wear facial coverings while entering campus, until they are in their cohorts, as well as indoors, off-campus, as needed, and while riding transportation.

Social Distancing
Campers and staff will socially distance themselves whenever possible. Program spaces are designed to facilitate 3’ of distance between cohorts. Indoor program spaces are designed to facilitate 3’ of distance between campers and staff. Use of communal space will be staggered, when possible, to allow for distancing and cleaning.

BDC offers Semi-Private Swim Lessons in our pool to campers enrolled in BDC programming. Certified Red Cross Water Safety Instructors coach your child for ½ hour of dedicated swim instruction after the camp day, from 4:00-4:30.

BDC's traditional end-of-summer Council Fire will look a little different this summer! We will be hosting our Council Fire and Award Ceremony during the camp day on Friday 8/20. Family & friends are encouraged to join us virtually as we stream the Council Fire on Instagram Live! If you aren't able to watch it live on Friday afternoon, you can watch it at your convenience on our Instagram page!
