Camp BREC Bus Stops
This summer, Camp BREC is offering a brand-new transportation service for all Community Recreation camps to assist parents and guardians in getting
their campers to the main camp location. Each camp location will offer one to three bus stops at nearby BREC parks for drop off and pick up each morning and evening of camp. Bus Stop locations will be chosen during the camp registration process but can be altered after the start of camp. Parents and guardians will be required to stay with his or her camper until the bus and camp counselor arrives for pick up.
