Summer is for family, summer is for friends, and summer is definitely for EBR. As we reimagine the CECBR experience we can provide to families, we expect the sunny days at play and star-filled nights by the campfire will offer families the relaxation, wellness and enjoyment we all crave in our lives right now. This unique experience is open to all current and past families, alumni, and friends of EBR. The CECBR team will be leading special day time and evening activities with each day open for your enjoyment of our campus. ‘Home @ EBR’ will bring back the warm memories of camp traditions from summers past and create new memories for families to cherish for years to come.
