Summer Camps

BREC Trek LA - Activity Tracker Challenge

Join us on an adventure as we trek across Louisiana by tracking our steps at camp each week. We will convert our steps to miles and see how many exciting cities we can “travel” to over the next 5 weeks (sessions 3-7). See if you can hike to the end of the expedition and make it all around the Pelican State!

Weekly prizes will be awarded to the camp with the highest total steps for the week. The camp that travels the most miles around the state will receive the grand prize the last week of camp!


Check back each week to which camps are in the lead! The list of locations and their current status is below. Feel free to ask your camp director about the challenge when visiting your camp site.

We will also be posting photos and the steps & mile counts for winners each week!

Final Tallies!
