BREC's 2020 Summer Camps
BREC is excited to be able to offer summer camp this year, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, camps will look different. As always BREC will offer a variety of activities, experiences and camps to serve as many children as possible while following state and federal recommendations to ensure the safety of campers and camp staff. For the first week BREC will only offer virtual experiences and will move to both in-person and virtual experiences after that.
Available opportunities and registration details for the month of July are expected to be announced sometime in June as additional information becomes available from public health officials. Watch this page for further information such as modified procedures for camp and new opportunities as they become available.
While safety is our top priority, we are just as focused on ensuring your children have fun!

BREC Connect Virtual Experience
COVID-19 brought unprecedented challenges to BREC and to the communities we serve. As we emerge from the disruption of the pandemic, BREC will continue to respond to the changing needs of the communities we serve with public health and safety at the core of each and every decision we make. All summer programs originally planned have been evaluated and are continually being reviewed with consideration for the latest public safety recommendations of our leaders and that of top health officials. Our recreation professionals remain in communication with industry peers across the nation to maintain the most comprehensive view of issues and solutions possible to make informed, strategic decisions regarding risk reduction to our staff, our patrons, and the community at large

Does Your Child Have a Disability? Assessments are made for campers that have a disability regardless of the camp attended. Trained BREC staff will assess each camper’s needs and ability level, in order to provide the most meaningful camp experience for each camper. 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 performed in order to determine the appropriate camp setting for each camper: Camp Sunshine or an Inclusive Camp.
