There also will be a craft opportunity for children to make their mother a special Mother’s Day gift, as well as a raffle with prizes including, free season passes, Bear Creek Campground lodging, and Dunkin Donuts gift cards. “We wanted to come up with a way for moms to squeeze in a little bit of relaxation and still get to spend the day with the rest of the family having fun, too,” said Jerry Brick, Lake Compounce’s general manager, in a press release from the park. “When I asked my wife what she wanted most for Mother’s Day she was torn between wanting to be with the kids and wanting time for herself, so this gives mothers a little bit of both.”
