Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that has been welcoming children and young adults (ages 6-21+) with special needs for 75 years. Located in Center Moriches, the Camp provides a variety of creative and challenging activities that build self-esteem, promote social and personal growth, and provide experiences that these children would not otherwise be able to enjoy. Campers learn how to explore and try new things, make friends, practice self-discipline and independence, build resilience, develop their talents, and practice teambuilding and peer relations, all in a safe environment where they feel comfortable and supported. Campers leave with smiles on their faces, pride in their accomplishments, and lifelong friendships. At the same time, parents are provided with some much-needed respite.
Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck is a sleep-away camp and boasts all of the activities one would expect in a camp, including a recreation center, in-ground swimming pool, row boats, kayaking, fishing, campfires, movie nights, arts and crafts, adaptive sports and games, nature trails, and even a petting zoo. The Camp welcomes children with most physical and developmental challenges, and is proud to be a place “where summer is for everyone!” In addition to summer programming, the Camp offers several year-round programs that provide recreation, social activities and respite for their caregivers. In total, the Camp serves nearly 500 campers annually.
The Camp relies on generous supporters to ensure a safe, fun, and high-quality Camp experience for all campers. Monetary donations and volunteers willing to donate their time and talents are always welcome!
