What: This year marks the 23rd year of the Spooky Walk at Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck. Although the walk has been family-friendly in past years, this year's walk is more geared toward teenagers and young adults as it promises to be the scariest walk yet. The walk lasts 45 to 60 minutes - the longest-lasting walk on Long Island - and features some of the most eerie exhibits, including The Black Woods, the most treacherous part of the Spooky Walk, and the Psycho Circus.

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.
