Bridgehampton Child Care & Recreational Center Born out of tragedy in 1949, when a fire killed two children in a local migrant camp, out of the ashes rose the Bridgehampton Child Care & Recreational Center. The Center continues to serve the community’s children with educational and enrichment programs. For many working families, The Center is a lifeline. Their kids flourish in our many programs and play safely on the six-acre farm and fields donated to create The Center in the 1950’s.
