Center Moriches, NY - September 26th, 2013 - This Halloween season, the Moriches Paquatuck Squaws is asking everyone to get “spooked” for a good cause at the 25th annual Spooky Walk fundraiser, which will take place at Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck on and . Gates will be open from on all four days.
Each year, there are new exhibits mixed in with old Spooky Walk favorites. Whether it is weaving through the mysterious Black Woods, dodging ghosts, ghouls and goblins or exploring the Psycho Circus, expect scream-worthy surprises at every turn! With over 45 minutes of scares, the Spooky Walk is considered to be one of the longest — and scariest — haunted walks on Long Island.
The walk is intended for older children, teens and adults, with younger children able to participate at the discretion of their caregiver. If for any reason a child needs to leave the walk, parents can contact a security officer for assistance.
Tickets are $15 each. Spooky Walk merchandise and food will also be available on site. All proceeds will benefit Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck. The event is presented by the Moriches Paquatuck Squaws, who have raised over $100,000 for Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck annually for the camp.
The Squaws are currently accepting applications for volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering for the event, visit their website (below) for more information.
The camp is located on Chet Swezey Road in Center Moriches. For more information, visit www.spookywalk.com. For more information about Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck, 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 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 specially 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.
