BPRW Operations During the COVID-19 Outbreak

At this time we are phasing back in to pre-pandemic routines. Drop-in programs have resumed and our youth programs will operate following CDC guidelines that are appropriate for each. For example, outdoor sports may not require participants to wear masks, while indoor licensed day camp activities may request that children and staff wear masks. We will do our best to notify everyone before programs begin or at facility entrances. Please be prepared to wear a mask if requested.

Some of our staff continue to work from home for those in positions where it is feasible to do so.

Our dedicated customer service team is always available by phone to answer any questions. Please call 802-864-0123. You may also use our online program registration portal to view the status of programs https://secure.rec1.com/VT/burlington-vt/catalog

We invite you to follow to latest updates on the City’s response to COVID-19 on the City of Burlington website: https://www.burlingtonvt.gov/covid-19

“It is a great, life-saving achievement for Vermont to be the first-state in the country to reach the critical threshold of vaccinating 80% of the eligible population.  This accomplishment, while extraordinary, is no surprise to anyone who knows Vermonters and understands their deep dedication to community, science, and protecting the most vulnerable.  Bravo Vermont, and to everyone who took action to bring us to this outstanding milestone.”
