Have a Parent's Day Out

Parents, do you need a day without the children to take care of any last minute holiday shopping? BREC offers a recreational day for parents to drop off their children, ages 6-12, with and without disabilities, in order to finish some holiday errands.

BREC's Therapeutics Department, along with Families Helping Families of Greater Baton Rouge and The Arc Baton Rouge, hosts its annual Santa Drop-N-Shop event on Dec. 11 at BREC's North Sherwood Family Center, 3140 N. Sherwood Forest Blvd.

Santa Drop-N-Shop runs from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. and includes indoor activities, arts and crafts, movies, snacks and lunch. Children may also receive a surprise visit from a "special guest."

The cost for Santa Drop-N-Shop is $10 per child, and each child must be pre-registered. Event is limited to first 30 registered children.

BREC's Therapeutics Department has a cooperative endeavor with Families Helping Families of Greater Baton Rouge and The Arc Baton Rouge in an effort to give children with disabilities the chance to interact and play with children that do not have disabilities. Through this program, children learn to interact with each other by participating in league sports, camps and events such as Santa Drop-N-Shop.

For more information, please contact Katrina Coots at 225-272-9200, ext. 572 or at

It is the BREC mission to provide parks and recreational opportunities for all citizens of East Baton Rouge Parish.
