Camp Themes

Each week the summer camp curriculum offers a different, exciting theme that provides opportunities for campers to participate in numerous age-appropriate, artistically designed activities including games, arts and crafts, music, outdoor adventures and field trips.

GAME SHOW MANIA June 5-9

Does your camper have what it takes to win it all? Then “come on down” to the BREC Summer Camp Game Show Week. Participate in games like Jeopardy, Minute to Win It, Fear Factor and Name that Tune.

SLIME & GRIME June 12-16

Join the fun as we plan to get messy. When you combine one-part science and two-parts imagination with some household knowledge, some paint and a little dirt, the outcome is filled with exciting activities, games and experiments that are sure to capture your attention and make you say WOW! (Pie roulette, egg toss, belly slide, Cheeto face and team painting) 

A BLAST FROM THE PAST June 19-23

Hop on board our time machine as we travel back in time to enjoy old-school games, music and more. It’s truly a blast back from the past when games become non-electronic and all about the personal interactions.

WATER WORLD June 26-30

Campers will splish and splash their way through the week as we explore fun with water activities! Don’t worry, the field trip to the water park will not to be overshadowed by the intense squirt gun and water balloon battle planned at camp! Bring your best and finest water blaster, canon and bucket.

SALUTE TO OUR HEROES July 3-7 (no camp July 4)

Get ready for an adventure of heroic proportions as we salute our heroes. We will learn about and meet real life super heroes and show them our appreciation for keeping us safe!

GEAUX GREEN July 10-14

Geaux Green camp days begin with entertaining, age-appropriate and eco-friendly lessons on ways to help keep the Earth green. Campers explore the natural environment and engage in science and art activities that reinforce each day’s message.

MARVEL VS DC - WHO SAVES BREC? July 17-21

Step into a world of fantastical science, myth and mayhem. Welcome to the Rise of BREC, a comic book universe where superheroes and supervillains battle for the fate of camp! Develop your superpowers and train to safely use them while learning super stunts. Test yourself with supercharged obstacle courses.

EXTREME SPORTS July 24-28
