Registrants must request all refunds on a Summer Camp/Extended Care Refund form by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax: 225-273-6407. If a registrant makes a refund request more than 10 business days prior to the start of the session, BREC issues the full session fee minus a $15 transaction fee. If a registrant makes a refund request 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. BREC assesses a $2 transaction fee for all refund requests for extended care only. BREC bases all refund fees on each transaction. The date printed on the refund request (email or faxed) determines if a refund is granted.
All checks must clear before BREC processes any refunds. Please allow 3-4 weeks for BREC to issue a refund. If you do not have computer access, go to the day camp site and request a Summer Camp/Extended Care Refund form or you may submit in writing by fax with the following information: parent's name, child's name, phone number where you may be reached, camp site, session date(s), form of payment, receipt number and specify whether you made payment in person or on-line.
