BREC's 2020 Summer Camps
For decades, BREC’s Summer Camps have been an inclusive, family tradition in East Baton Rouge Parish! Parents recognize the quality of BREC’s summer program which is loaded with a diverse curriculum of fun, memory-making activities that are second to none. Campers experience recreational games, community field trips, recreational sports, cultural arts, develop new friendships and more. From recreation and theatre to animals and science, there is a camp for children of all abilities, ages and interests!
BREC offers inclusive opportunities to all patrons. If your child has a disability, our staff would like to meet with you. We recommend a recreational assessment be performed by a BREC employee prior to camp. Please see Camper Assessments below

Registrants must pay the remaining balances of the weekly session fee no later than the Thursday before the session begins. Anyone who does not pay their balance by this time will forfeit their original deposit and their spot in the upcoming camp sessions. The original deposit is non-refundable but is transferable. Deposits are not available for online registration.
Registrants must request all refunds on a Summer Camp Refund form. You can download this form at brec.org/summercamp or pick one up at your summer camp location. If a registrant requests a refund more than 10 business days prior to the start of the session, BREC will issue the full session fee minus a $15 transaction fee. If a registrant requests a refund 10 business days or less from the start of the session, BREC will not issue a refund. All checks must clear before BREC processes any refunds. BREC does not issue a refund for any session already in progress.
Please, make sure your address is legible and up to date to avoid any delay with the refund process. Please allow 3-4 weeks for BREC to issue a refund after the refund form has been completed and submitted. If you do not have computer access, go to the summer camp site and request a Summer Camp Refund form. Refund Checks will be distributed to the name of the person on the summer camp registration

Does Your Child Have a Disability? Assessments are made for campers that have a disability regardless of the camp attended. Trained BREC staff will assess each camper’s needs and ability level, in order to provide the most meaningful camp experience for each camper. Campers who require any of the following: bathroom assistance, feeding assistance and challenging behaviors that require more than 1:5 staff ratio may be required to have an aide provided by the parents/guardians. Recreation assessments are performed in order to determine the appropriate camp setting for each camper: Camp Sunshine or an Inclusive Camp. To schedule an appointment for an assessment call 225-272-9200 EXT 1413 or email Blaine Imoff at firstname.lastname@example.org beginning March 1.
