2022 Camp Sunshine
Camp Sunshine is an exclusive summer camp designed for campers with intellectual and developmental disabilities, offering different sections for ages 8-11, ages 12-14 and ages 15-17. All BREC summer camps are inclusive, but Camp Sunshine is for campers who need to function within a staff ratio of 1:5 and/or 1:10. Before registration is complete, our staff would like to meet with you to determine if Camp Sunshine is the right opportunity for you this summer by completing a recreational assessment.
To schedule an appointment for an assessment, email Molly Orr at Molly.Orr@brec.org beginning February 1. Each themed week consists of recreational games and activities, arts and crafts, field trips, water activities, and inclusive activities with other community recreation camps to give the campers social opportunities to interact with their peers.

This program offers recreational opportunities as a learning tool for daily living activities for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This program bridges the gap between high school and the life after for our participants. We will learn how to become a part of their community, engaging in meaningful daily activities while learning new skills. The participants will have opportunities to take daily trips to volunteer sites and actively engage in activities in the community.
All participants must complete an assessment before registering. To register or set up an appointment for an assessment, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org starting February 1.
