Summer Recreation Program - 2021

The Bay County Community Center will host the Summer Recreation Program this summer. We are excited to have the children back in our building. In order to create a safe environment during the pandemic, we are making some changes to the typical program. We will host a morning and afternoon session. Morning sessions will be for the younger children; ages 6-8. The afternoon session will be for the older children; ages 9-12.  The children will be cohorted, outside play will be prioritized, and most field trips will be eliminated unless they are in walking distance. There will be a cap on number of kids we can take into the program of 80 in each the morning and afternoon sessions. We will follow MDHHS and CDC guidelines in regards to masking. Lunch will be served as a sack lunch to take home or children will be able to eat outside.
