Moriches Paquatuck Squaws to Host 2nd Annual Joy Prom at Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck

Tuesday, February 10, 2015

(Center Moriches, NY) – The Moriches Paquatuck Squaws will help Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck kick off the spring season with its second annual Spring Fling Joy Prom on March 27, at the camp’s dining hall from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

For $25, guests will be able to enjoy dinner, dessert, and a night of dancing. The theme of the Joy Prom is butterflies, due to their metamorphosis. The event is being presented by The Moriches Paquatuck Squaws, who hold numerous annual fundraisers for the camp. Children with special needs and their chaperones, if needed, can come down for an exciting night of dancing and socializing. The dress attire for the evening is formal.

“We know our primary job is to raise money for the camp every year; however, we enjoy this event because it is just for the attendees to enjoy being themselves for the night,” says Jenny Montalbano, Vice President, Moriches Paquatuck Squaws.

There will be an elegant buffet of catered dishes and kid-friendly foods, as well as some of the camp’s specialty desserts. Those in attendance will enjoy music and dancing. This is a perfect event to jumpstart the spring season — a closer time to the camp’s thrilling summer sessions.

“We are excited for an elegant evening with our campers, families, and supporters. Come make new friends or visit with old, all while having a great time,” says Bridget Costello, Director, Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck.
