The countdown to Summer 2021 is ON, and we can’t wait to be back at camp together!
Although there will be some changes this summer, we want you to know that camp will still be camp! We will still have songs and spirit, we will still celebrate our favorite traditions, and we will make just as many unforgettable memories as ever.
If there has ever been a time when we all REALLY needed a summer at camp, this is it! We have been working hard to plan for a “safe haven” where we can enjoy all the magic of a Bryn Mawr summer. Your parents will be getting details about these plans very soon.
In the past year, we have all gotten used to new ways of doing things. School, sports, activities, holidays — everything has been a little different (or sometimes a lot different). Throughout all of it, we have seen all of our Angels living the Angel Code values of Loyalty, Beauty, Merit and Comradeship by adapting to new routines, respecting new rules, and most of all, by being caring and compassionate toward others. Every change that you made, from wearing masks to distance learning, helps protect other people, and that’s an amazing way to live the Angel Code!
As we get ready to welcome everyone back to Bryn Mawr, we want to take a moment to talk about what this summer will be like. We always ask for honesty from our campers, so we want to be very honest ourselves: This summer at camp will be different from past summers. There will be new ways of doing things and changes to some of our regular routines. It will probably take all of us some time to get used to these new routines — even Jane and Dan! We will all learn and adapt together to keep doing what we have been doing since last year: looking out for others by staying safe and staying healthy!
No matter what, the Alma Mater reminds us that camp will always be camp — “if Bryn Mawr means as much to you as Bryn Mawr means to me!”
