(Center Moriches, New York) — For the 23rd straight year, Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck is asking those to get “spooked” for a good cause. The annual Spooky Walk will take place on the campgrounds on October 21-22 and October 28-29. Gates open between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. The event is being hosted by the Moriches Paquatuck Squaws.

Although the Spooky Walk has been considered a family-friendly event in the past, organizers for this year’s Spooky Walk have been working hard in making this the scariest — and best — Halloween walk on Long Island this Halloween season. Since its inception in 1989, the Spooky Walk has become the most popular haunt on Long Island, and — at a walk lasting 45 to 60 minutes — the longest-lasting walk on the Island.

As visitors enter the gates, they will encounter some of the scariest, most grotesque creatures they have ever seen. Their bravery will be challenged as they walk an inescapable route into The Black Woods. This year’s exhibits include the Psycho Circus, The Pirates, The Die-Ner, The Haunted Gazebo, The Dark Woods, The Witches and more!

This year’s Spooky Walk is geared towards older children, teenagers and adults. Younger children may also attend, but it is up to the parent or caregiver to determine if their child can handle it. If for any reason the parent needs to take the child out, they may do so by notifying a security officer.

Tickets can be purchased at the gate, with proceeds going to benefit the special-needs children at Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck. Food, drinks and souvenirs will be sold at the end of the walk.

The camp is located on Chet Swezey Road. For more information, visit www.spookywalk.com. For more information about Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck, call (631) 878-1070 or visit www.camppaquatuck.com.

Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck was created by members of the Moriches Rotary Club in 1946. Located on the shores of Kaler's Pond on eastern Long Island, Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck is funded entirely by donations and is a special place where children with physical and developmental disabilities can experience first hand the pleasures that an active life has to offer. Children participate in a wide range of activities specially designed for youngsters who are in wheelchairs as well as those who are ambulatory. These activities include swimming, boating, arts and crafts, petting zoo, talent shows, cook-outs, games and a Carnival Day. The program also provides educational activities in areas such as nature, arts, fire safety and communication skills.

Boneyard Haunted House Sets Spooky Stage for Thrills This Halloween Season
It’s hard to believe that the largest haunted house in the world got its start in a refrigerator box in 1969. That was the year that Dan Hall, Boneyard Haunted House’s founder and chief operator, was elected to his 2nd grade student council. His assignment? Build the school’s fall haunted house. For Hall, what started as a creepy crawl through refrigerator boxes morphed into a beastly love of all things
