Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck’s Winter Respite Schedule Announced(Center Moriches, NY) — Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck announced that it is opening its doors again for the winter weekend respite program, transforming the 60-plus-year-old camp into a year-round destination for children with disabilities.
Children up to the age of 21 arrive on Friday evening and leave on Sunday afternoon. There is a new theme each weekend. Children can participate in various activities, including baking, arts and crafts, games, and watching movies.
The weekends available are as follows: January 13-15, 2012; January 27-29, 2012; February 10-12, 2012; February 17-19, 2012; and March 9-11, 2012. The weekend respite program runs until June. The cost of each weekend (Friday to Sunday) is $350. The camp requires a $50 deposit per session which is non-refundable unless registration is canceled 30 days prior to the session.
“We are excited to bring back this wonderful program,” said Bridget Costello, Director, Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck. “This gives children the opportunity to be themselves, and the parents a chance to relax while their children are being taken care of.”
Check-in for campers are by 8 p.m. on Friday and check-out is by 3 p.m. on Sunday. Because the resources are packed away for the winter, campers are required to bring their own sheets, blankets, pillows, towels, and toiletries.
Up to 14 campers will be admitted for each weekend. During those weekends, the camp will be staffed by five counselors and the camp nurse.
For more information and to register your child, 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 and young adults with physical and developmental disabilities can experience first hand the pleasures that an active life has to offer. They participate in a wide range of activities especially designed for those 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.
