Summer Camps

BREC's 2019 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.

Registration for East Baton Rouge Parish residents will open on March 23.
Registration for any out of parish campers will open April 2

Deposits

BREC allows a registration deposit equal to half of the session(s) fee starting March 23 on-site only. Anyone who wishes to hold a spot in any session can do so by paying at least 25% of their summer camp fees foe every session they plan to attend. 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.

Refunds

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 on your form 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. Refund Checks will be distributed to the name of the person on the summer camp registration.

SEND A KID TO CAMP SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

This year BREC will provide limited scholarship assistance using a new sliding scale model based closely on the Federal Poverty Guidelines. This model allows up to a 75% reduction on all summer camp fees to qualifying households. (Excluding the Baton Rouge Zoo, Golf and Tennis.)

BREC requires all households to pay at least 25% of their summer camp fees for every session they plan to attend at the time of requesting a scholarship application. Scholarship applications are available at all summer camp locations. Households must complete BREC’s Scholarship Application in its entirety with the required documents for consideration. BREC does not make exceptions and does not offer scholarships for out-of-parish residents. Scholarships are available on a first come, first serve basis until funds are no longer available.

TO DONATE: If you would like to donate funds to help send a kid to camp, please contact the BREC Foundation at 225-226-7381 or info@brecfoundation.org.

Camper Assessments

Does Your Child Have a Disability? Assessments are done with all campers that have a disability regardless of the camp attending. Trained BREC staff will assess each camper’s needs and ability level, in order to provide the most meaningful camp experience for each camper. To schedule an appointment for an assessment email Molly Orr at molly.orr@brec.org which will begin March 11.
