Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck Hosts Bradstock XXI

Center Moriches, NY - August 7, 2014 - Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck will be presenting Bradstock XXI, a two-day festival featuring live music and poetry that will be taking place on Saturday, August 30 from noon to 8 p.m. and Sunday, August 31 from noon to 9 p.m.
 
Now in its 21st year, Bradstock is an all-day music festival featuring the best musical acts performing Americana, bluegrass, blues, reggae, jams, funk, rock and jazz. Among those who will be performing include Cassandra House, Gerry McKeveney, Soundswell, Jack’s Waterfall, Miles to Dayton, Jerry McDonald, Ed Travers, Shecky and the Twangtones, David Amram, Funkin’A, Jelly Band, Falco Brothers and The Electrix. In addition, there will be a Poetry Stage featuring the area’s finest and most diverse poets and a Folk and Songwriters’ stage featuring the best local musical talent.
 
Tickets are $35 for the first day ($45 day of event), $50 for the second day ($60 day of event) and $80 for both days. Prices include admission to the festival. Cash will only be accepted for ticket purchases on the days of the event. Ticket prices do not include tax.
 
For $125 plus tax, concertgoers can purchase the Platinum package ahead of the event. This includes admission to both days of the festival (including overnight camping on Saturday), a Bradstock T-shirt, backstage access and more. Camping sites and T-shirts are limited, so early registration is strongly recommended. In the event that there are remaining tickets, they can be purchased at the door for $150 (plus tax).
 
Tickets for Saturday’s festival and the 5K Trail Run are available for $40 plus tax when purchased by August 22, $50 on the day of registration (cash only). VIP Platinum members who register on the day of the race pay $5 (cash only). The race begins at 8:30 a.m. All entrants receive a commemorative Bradstock mug.
 
Part of the ticket sales will go to benefit Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck. Over the past four years, Bradstock has raised over $30,000 for the camp.
 
The music festival has a special connection to the camp as the late Kevin “K.C.” Cowan — who performed at every single Bradstock event with his band, K.C. and The Love Drops, before his passing on October 2011 — was the brother-in-law of Bridget Costello, Director, Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck.
 
Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck is a resident summer camp serving children and young adults ages 6-21 with both physical and developmental special needs. Its mission is to help these children to achieve equality, dignity, and maximum independence through a safe and quality program of camping, recreation, and education. Throughout the program, campers participate in many activities, such as arts and crafts, talent shows, cook-outs, swimming and boating.

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 primarily 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 especially 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.
