BATON ROUGE, La. (BRProud) — Parents may sign up their children for virtual and in-person summer camps with Baton Rouge Parks and Recreation (BREC) starting today.
Registration opened at 9 a.m. for the first week of virtual camp. For weeks two through four, registration for virtual and in-person camps opens at 9 a.m. on May 26.
BREC officials said they will follow state and federal recommendations to ensure the safety of campers and staff during the pandemic.
Virtual-only camps will run from June 1 through June 5, and both in-person summer camps and virtual experiences from June 8-July 31.
Available opportunities and registration details for the month of July are expected to be announced in June as additional information becomes available from public health officials.
BREC’s virtual camps will involve interactive streaming experiences with “Camp in a Bag” supplies that participants can retrieve at six different BREC park locations.
For in-person camps, capacity will be limited to a ratio of nine children to one adult. BREC staff will conduct temperature checks, frequently sanitize supplies and facilities, encourage physical distancing, rotate camp experiences among small groups and wear masks while working with children and parents.
“As the local economy continues to reopen, summer camps and summer experiences are more important than ever to allow parents to get back to work, and while the experience will be different, this year BREC will be even more accessible across the parish with a combination of online and in-person experiences,” said BREC Superintendent Corey Wilson.
Parents or guardians must register online at webtrac.brec.org for all online and in-person locations this summer and may register for more than one camp or activity during a day.
