BREC allows a registration deposit equal to half of the session(s) fee starting March 24 – May 18 on-site only. Anyone who wishes to hold a spot in any session can do so by paying half of the total fee. Registrants must pay the remaining balances of the registration fees no later than the Thursday before the camp session begins. Anyone who does not pay their balance by this time will forfeit their original deposit and their spot in upcoming session of camp. 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 site. 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. BREC does not issue a refund for any session already in progress. All checks must clear before BREC processes any refunds. 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.
Available to EBR Parish Residents ONLY
BREC provides limited financial assistance. BREC requires all applicants to pay at least half of the registration fee for every session they plan to attend at the time of requesting a financial assistance form. All recreation centers provide financial assistance forms that include directions for completing the financial assistance process. Registrants must complete BREC’s Financial Assistance Form in its entirety with the required documents attached for financial assistance in order for BREC to consider the application. BREC does not make exceptions and does not offer financial assistance for out-of-parish residents. Financial assistance is available on a first come, first serve basis until funds are no longer available.
The payment and registration policies indicated above do not apply to Zoo Camp.
Every camper with a disability (whether attending Camp Sunshine or a typical Inclusive Summer Camp) must have an assessment performed by a BREC employee. BREC staff will screen each camper’s abilities and needs to allow campers to function to their best ability at camp. 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 conducted to determine if Camp Sunshine is the right choice for your child or if they should be at a typical inclusive camp. These assessments will be scheduled by appointment only starting March 5. To schedule an assessment appointment, call 225-272-9200 EXT 471 or email Ashley Perrault at email@example.com or Kendall Aguillard at firstname.lastname@example.org beginning March 5.
