Camp BREC Bus Stops

This summer, Camp BREC will be offering the new transportation service for all Community Recreation camps to assist parents and guardians in getting their campers to the main camp location while also making camps more accessible to everyone in the area.

To accommodate this, we have increased the number of campers and staff at each camp. Each stop will have early pick-up times where each camper must be signed in with the staff member on the bus by a parent or guardian. Campers cannot be dropped off until the bus arrives. There will also be a set return time to the bus stop at the end of the camp day. BREC staff will be onsite to keep the camp day going until the campers are picked up by 5:30 p.m.

A bus schedule will be provided prior to the start of camp. You may also still drop off campers at the main camp location. Bus stop locations for each camp location will be listed the Community Recreation Summer Camp Page

Please note: Because we will have limited camp offerings for Session 9, there will be no Bus Stops offered.

If you are interested in using this camp accommodation, you must sign up during summer camp registration.
