CARTERET — Mayor Dan Reiman and Councilman Skippy Sitarz have announced that the borough has introduced a range of new field trips that will coincide with its already popular Summer Recreation series.
The borough’s Department of Recreation has released new schedules for its Concerts at the Park and Concerts by the Bay (at Waterfront Park) series, and the continuation of other annual programs. These include the Summer Lunch program for students; summer reading, movies, games, and arts and crafts at the Carteret Library; and sports camps and fitness programs, including new ones established in conjunction with the Robert Wood Johnson Fitness and Wellness Center at Carteret and YMCA.
This summer the Reiman administration is introducing a range of new recreational and educational field trips that will provide both fun and learning to residents of all ages. Free transportation is being provided with vehicles obtained with federal grant funding. Trips include:
July 24 – Clementon Parl / Splash World
July 25 – Columbus Market Place

July 31 – Sesame Place
Aug. 4 – Storybook Land
Aug. 7 – Liberty Science Center

While there is no charge for transportation, ticket sales will be made according to what each venue charges for admission.
“Our summer bus trips make a wide array of destinations available to our residents at no additional cost,” Reiman said. “Judging by this year’s registrations, the program has grown immensely in popularity, offering a greater variety of fun and educational trips than ever before.”
