BV Recreation programming update during the covid-19 pandemic

Our goal at BV Rec is to offer as much of our annual programming as possible. All of our programs will only operate under the guidelines from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and Chaffee County Public Health. The guidelines for each program will be listed on the program page.

    BV REC works with local enthusiasts, instructors, businesses and citizens, and currently provides over 75 athletic, cultural, and expeditionary activities. We know you’ll find something here you’ll like! If what you’re looking for isn’t offered, we will work with you to find out where it is offered or what might be required to get it going.
