BAY HEAD — The Bay Head Recreation Committee is looking to kick-off the summer season with lots of different events and programs including a summer STEM camp, Mayor’s Wellness events, sports clinics and Music in the Park.
“We are trying to create an environment for adults and kids,” said Councilwoman and Recreation Liaison Holly MacPhearson.
Two of the larger programs offered by the borough every year are the Summer Recreation Program, as well as the Save Barnegat Bay Summer STEM program.
The recreation camp is being held for residents ages 5 through 12 at Bay Head School starting on July 3. The camp runs Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. through noon and ends on Aug. 10. The camp is open for all children and grandchildren of Bay Head residents or summer renters as well as all students enrolled at the Bay Head School, regardless of residency. According to the Bay Head website, the cap number will be 40 participants this year and sign ups are available on the borough website. The fee is $200 per child.
The other summer camp is open for all of the science-loving children in the area and is being run through the Save Barnegat Bay organization. The camp will be held on Tuesdays at to-be-determined locations from July 11 through Aug. 22 from 10 a.m. to noon. According to the Save Barnegat Bay website, the different dates will welcome different lessons about rain barrel construction, biodiversity, oyster processing and more. Each lesson is laid out in detail on savebarnegatbay.org/educate/stem-summer-series/. Children ages five to 15 from Bay Head, Mantoloking and Point Pleasant are all welcome to attend.
