Youth Organizations

As a family friendly city, we make sure our kids have lots to do from school clubs and sports to scouting and 4-H there is sure to be something your young family members will enjoy.  Many of our organizations host events to support community projects.  Our local police department hosts a 4-H shooting club, helps with National Night Out, supports a Law Enforcement  Fish Fun Day and a Great Steak Cook Off.  The Matagorda County Family Fun Day is put together by Bay Area Council on Drugs & Alcohol (BACODA) with the help of local churches and organizations.

I have lived in Bay City for 7 years after moving from the Deer Park area. We enjoy living in Bay City for many of the city's attributes; from the slow pace, friendly atmosphere to the close proximity to the beach and river. It is easy to be involved in the community's organizations because people are friendly and willing to help each other out. It is such a great welcoming culture from the Houston lifestyle.
