Fun & Recreation for All

This has been more than a motto for Bay View’s Recreation Department for generations. The recreation program, including everything from sailing to tennis, provides something for everyone. The ever-popular Day Camp offers a safe, stimulating environment in which children participate in healthy, creative activities, developing life-long friendships. From mid-June to August, children participate in age-appropriate morning activities at Tot Lot (ages 3-4), Fawns (5-6), and Boys’ And Girls’ Club (7-14), located at Swift Field. Half-hour swimming lessons at the Bay View waterfront are also part of the daily schedule.

Whether you are visiting Bay View or live year round in the Petoskey area, the Bay View recreation program provides a fun and positive memory-making experience for children and those who are young at heart.
