Welcome to BERA
Brookhaven Employees' Recreation Association
BNL Facilities are not open to the Public!
BERA is administered by the Quality of Life/BERA/Recreation Office, located in Bldg. 400. BERA oversees the many clubs and organizations, and assists in the administration of the overall program and the use of available recreational facilities on-site. See a complete list of BERA Clubs.
BERA members are employees and retirees of BNL, BSA, or the Brookhaven Area Office of the U.S. Department of Energy, and members of their immediate families; persons with BNL or BSA guest, user, and visiting appointments, and members of their immediate families; employees of permanent on-site employers (such as the cafeteria, credit union, Upton Post Office, etc.), and members of their immediate families.
