The Briarwood Bugle

Week 8

From Matt and Mike

Even in the last week, camp kept flying along! This week, we had the drama show (awesome!), the gymnastics show (also awesome!), the wiffle ball tournament (also awesome (sensing a theme???)), our awards ceremonies and much more!  Who knew our kids were so good at so many things?  (We did, of course!)


Through it all the kids played, climbed, created, jumped, swam, zoom floomed, smiled, laughed and generally had a great time. We celebrated Briarwood’s 32nd birthday on Wednesday with cake and the second annual Briarwood Marathon!  Today, we celebrated the end of camp with bunk parties and today’s all camp dance.  And did you see the plaques?  Amazing!  Can’t wait to do it all and more in 2018!



Dear Briarwood Family,

Every year we think that camp can’t get any better but it absolutely does!  As we finish Briarwood’s 32nd year, we wanted to let everyone know how much we’ve enjoyed this summer and how much we look forward to many, many more years together.

THANK YOU TO OUR KIDS:  You are the reason why we’re here.  Your smiles, your joy and your enthusiasm are infectious, heart warming and keep us all young.

THANK YOU TO OUR PARENTS:  Thank you for trusting us with your children.  We strive to provide a great camp experience for all campers and your trust and support have helped us immensely.  We know you have other options and we are truly thankful that you’ve chosen Briarwood!

THANK YOU TO OUR STAFF:  Thank you for your dedication and your unwavering commitment to be the best you can be.  You are the backbone of this camp and your love and dedication to camping and to Briarwood’s kids make this place the best day camp in the entire Philadelphia area and an example to all other day camps.

Have a great off-season and we hope to see you all next year!
