Montauk Youth Inc.’s mission is to organize affordable and accessible recreational and cultural activities for the youth of Montauk. Montauk Youth Inc. seeks to provide this programming by organizing activities outright and by working with other youth groups in Montauk and with the Town of East Hampton to fill gaps in community youth programming. We are a nonprofit, all-volunteer, organization that has been organizing activities for the youth of Montauk for over 40 years. Membership is open to all. Programs are funded through a Town grant and through nominal participation fees.
Visit our Youth Calendar for information on youth activities and programs, or scroll below for our most recent emails!
Would anyone be interested in taking on the organization of the following Montauk Youth events/programs?
– January 2 – Family Rollerskating Night at Sportime in Amagansett. This is open to all – rollerskates are available for use through Montauk Youth. We provide 2 hours of skating, pizza and drinks for $5 each person. We need someone to collect the skates from Montauk School, collect payment and waivers, order pizza… – Goat on a Boat (or other) play group in Montauk – we have organized this in past years and the young children have loved it. For this program to happen, we need someone to contact Goat on a Boat, find a location to hold the program, collect payment and waivers….
Let me know if you are interested in helping and we can walk you through the process of organizing.
Thanks, Maureen Montauk Youth, Inc.
There is interest, so we will be booking the Sunday, January 26 bus trip to NYC to see Matilda. The itinerary is as follows:
7am – bus leaves Montauk Post Office 9:30am – arrival in NYC 3pm – Matilda at the Shubert Theater directly after the show – return trip to Montauk.
Balcony tickets (with Jitney transportation) cost $100 per person. Tickets are first-come, first-serve. You can drop payment at CinemaCycle at the Montauk Movie any morning from about 8:30 to 10am or make arrangements with me for pickup. Make checks payable to Montauk Youth. If you responded to yesterday’s email that you are interested, I have saved seats for you.
Montauk Youth is looking to schedule a trip into NYC on Sunday, January 26 to see Matilda. Tickets would cost $100 each (which includes Jitney transportation – and you’ll have several hours of free time in the city). Before we book the trip (tickets have to be paid for later this week), I’d like to get an idea of whether there is interest.
Please respond to this email if you would be interested in the trip – also include the number of tickets you would want.
Thanks so much, Maureen

Please drop your donations at Montauk School by Wednesday, October 23 (the flyer says the 24th, but Tara just found out that delivery will be made on the 24th and she needs a day to organize).

Field Day was AMAZING! Thank you so much for all who volunteered their time and efforts, all who donated food and prizes, all who came out to enjoy the festivities, to CCOM for providing cooking staff and taking on the costs of the bounce houses and band, and to Jack Perna for being such a great sport as this year’s pie throw recipient! It is my favorite event of the year – the feeling of community and the smiles on our kids faces make everyone’s efforts well worth it! I can’t say enough thank yous…thank you, thank you, thank you….
Now on to other Montauk Youth activities…..
*MONTAUK’S SCARECROW DAYS* have started. We have handed out a good number of frames and locations, and are ready to take on more than ever this year. Pick up your frames at CinemaCycle at the Montauk Movie, or call me (668-1540) and we’ll be sure to set you up. We’d love for your scarecrow to go up for this weekend’s Fall Festival activities, but have no fear…this is a Montauk casual event. Put your scarecrow up when you can. Part of the fun is seeing new scarecrows pop up around town each day. Judging will take place at the end of this month. This event is FREE and all are welcome to participate!!
*STREET PAINTING AT MONTAUK’S FALL FESTIVAL* this Sunday, October 13 in downtown Montauk. We tried this event out last year on the Sunday of Fall Festival on what we thought would be a limited basis and the participation was amazing. Find our tent on Main Street beginning at 10am, pick up a pack of pastels and a 5′ x 5′ square of concrete assignment, and create away. Again, this is a Montauk casual event – it’s FREE, and what you create is up to you! Be sure to look for your photos on our Facebook group after the event.
Thanks again for the continued support of all of our programs and events, and kudos to all of the volunteers who are making them the success that they are!
