Opportunities listed below are for all ages and no fees are associated unless otherwise noted.
Our goal is to offer a positive and supportive environment where individuals of all abilities can explore new recreation skills, develop socialization skills and have opportunities to participate in leisure and recreation programming to the fullest extent. While BREC strives to offer inclusive programs parish-wide we also offer separate programs exclusively
for people with intellectual and cognitive disabilities. There will be a sensory space provided for those who become overstimulated or need a minute to center and reset at the on-site events and programs.

All BREC programs are inclusive. If you would like to participate in a BREC program and might require an accommodation, please contact Molly Orr at molly.orr@brec.org for more information or set up an assessment.
