Farmingville, NY – The Brookhaven Youth Bureau’s ReGeneration Camp provides children five through twelve-years-old with safe, fun and enriching experiences. While children in the camps engage socially through various activities including crafts, games and outdoor athletics, they also have the opportunity to participate in programs that will make themselves and our communities safer.
On July 17 at Diamond in the Pines Camp in Coram, children learned about bicycle safety from an American Automobile Association (AAA) instructor. Among many traffic safety topics, the instructor also discussed how to maintain a bicycle so it is safe to ride and how to prepare yourself to ride a bicycle. The presentation ended with a bicycle safety challenge to review what was covered.
Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine said, “The Town’s ReGeneration Camp has many programs that are recreational as well as educational for children. I want to thank AAA for working with the Town to provide this important program and the Youth Bureau for finding creative ways to make learning about safety fun.”
Councilman Michael Loguercio, Brookhaven Town Board Liaison to the Youth Bureau, said, “Children that participate in the Youth Bureau’s ReGeneration Camp stay mentally motivated and physically active during the summer. I sincerely thank the Youth Bureau for the tremendous job they do, and for making safety a top priority.”
Brookhaven Town’s ReGeneration Camp operates for five weeks during July and August. For more information about this program, please call the Youth Bureau at 631-451-8026 or visit www.brookhavenny.gov.
