Volunteers are one of our most valuable assets. Without them we would not be able to offer the large variety of recreation programs we do, at a reasonable cost to both residents and visitors.

Ocean City Recreation Boosters organize events and engage in fundraising activities that help to lower the fees for recreation programs. Since 2001, the OC Rec Boosters have donated more than $500,000 to support the programs of the Ocean City Recreation Department.

Annual Fundraisers Include:

  • Swing for Youth Golf Tournament at Eagle’s Landing
  • Hot Chocolate sales during Winterfest of Lights
  • St. Patrick’s Soccer Tournament t-shirt sales
  • Wine booths at Spingfest, Sunfest, and Sunset Park Concerts

In addition to fundraising, the volunteers also offer their time and talents at a variety of events hosted by Ocean City Recreation and Parks, including Halloween Spook-Out, Easter Bunny Fun Shop and athletic tournaments.
