Winter Weekend Respite Program
Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck announced that it is once again offering its weekend respite program for the first five months of 2015, transforming the 60-plus-year-old camp into a year-round destination for children and young adults with disabilities.
Children and young adults up to the age of 21 arrive on Friday evening and leave on Sunday afternoon. There is a new theme each weekend. Campers can participate in various activities, including baking, arts and crafts, games, and watching movies.
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 canceled 30 days prior to the session.
Check-in for campers is at 8 p.m. on Friday and check-out is at 3 p.m. on Sunday. Because the resources are packed away until the summer, campers are required to bring their own sheets, blankets, pillows, towels, and toiletries.
Up to 20 campers will be admitted for each weekend. During those weekends, the camp will be staffed by Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck’s counselors and the camp nurse.
