(Center Moriches, NY) - Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck announced that it is opening its doors again for the spring 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: March 25-27; April 15-17, May 20-22 and June 10-12. 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 cancelled 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 is by 8 p.m. on Friday and check-out is by 3 p.m. on Sunday. 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.

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 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.
