The Wildwoods, NJ – May 4, 2012 – The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America provide an educational program that builds character, confidence and teaches the responsibilities of citizenship. For seventeen years, Morey’s Piers has been proud to support the mission and goals of these organizations by providing them an extraordinary opportunity to participate in unique scouting adventures.
On Friday, May 18 through Sunday, May 20 Morey’s Piers will host their Spring Beach Jam for Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of America. Beach Jam allows scouts and their families to enjoy the ultimate camping experience on the Wildwoods beaches along with live entertainment, a beach bonfire, sand sculpting competitions and the attractions on Morey’s Piers.
On Saturday, June 2, Cub Scouts, Brownies and Daisies are invited for Beach Bop, a one-day event designed for the youngest scouts and their families. Participants will receive a commemorative Beach Bop patch and enjoy a live DJ dance party in addition to the rides and attractions.
Boy and Girl Scouts of Southern and Central New Jersey are also coming back to Morey’s Piers for the fourth year on Sunday, June 30, to enjoy the rides and waterpark, live entertainment and a beach BBQ.
“Scouts from all over the Northeast enjoy these events, which combine scout spirit and Boardwalk fun in a truly unique setting,” said Kristel Jenkins, Events and Entertainment Manager.
In the spirit of scouting, participants are asked to contribute non-perishable food items to the United Way Food Bank to help support this worthwhile community service. Last year, scouts collected over one ton of food for the Food Bank.
Morey’s Piers hosts several youth events in the Wildwoods during the spring and fall shoulder seasons including Beach Scouting, Beach Lacrosse, Beach Soccer, Dance Expo, A Closer Walk Christian Youth Event, and new this year, the Wild Half, a half marathon. Beyond event registration revenues, the Beach Scouting events generate an additional $1,000,000 into the surrounding business community.
