Press release from: Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck

/ PR Agency: The Public Relations and Marketing Group
(Center Moriches, NY) — Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck announced that it is once again offering its fall weekend respite program, transforming the 60-plus-year-old camp into a year-round destination for children and young adults with disabilities.

Children and young adults up to the age of 21 arrive on Friday evening and leave on Sunday afternoon. There is a new theme each weekend. Campers can participate in various activities, including baking, arts and crafts, games, and watching movies.

The weekends available are as follows: September 13-15, 2013; October 4-6, 2013; November 22-24, 2013; and December 13-15, 2013. 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 and young adults the opportunity to be themselves, and the parents a chance to relax while their sons and daughters are being taken care of.”

Check-in for campers is at 8 p.m. on Friday and check-out is at 3 p.m. on Sunday. Because the resources are packed away until the summer, campers are required to bring their own sheets, blankets, pillows, towels, and toiletries.

Up to 20 campers will be admitted for each weekend. During those weekends, the camp will be staffed by nine counselors and the camp nurse.

For more information or 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.
