Briarwood Bugle 2022
Week 8


From Mike and Matt
Wow, what a summer! And we made it through – happy, healthy, sweaty and tired! And most definitely rarin’ for more!
Even in this hot and steamy last week, Briarwood kept flying along. Kids did their thing all around camp – they played, climbed, created, jumped, swam, zoom floomed (is that a word?), smiled, laughed and generally had a great time. A carefree, outdoor summer like this was what everyone absolutely needed.

We also celebrated Briarwood’s 37th summer this week, we had Briarwood’s Totally Awesome But Completely Optional All Camp Wiffle Ball Tournament, awards ceremonies, we set camp records and so, so, so much more. Who knew our kids were so talented? (We did, of course.) Today we celebrated the end of camp with bunk parties and lots more fun. And did you see the plaques? Unbelievably amazing! Can’t wait to do it all and more in 2023!


Dear Briarwood Family,

As we finish Briarwood’s 37th year, we wanted to let everyone know how much we’ve enjoyed this summer, how much we appreciate your support 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. Your positivity is invigorating.

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-especially in this summer’s challenging environment- 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 and to keep kids safe and healthy. 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. Again this summer, your determination to help kids have a fun, carefree, summer was absolutely and completely amazing and it’s something we’ll remember and appreciate always.

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

Matt & Mike
