Executive Director's Report

Time is beginning to fly by and before we realize it, the holidays will be upon us. Today, we are just concluding clean-up from the annual Oktoberfest, which took place a few weeks ago and which was very successful. Thanks to all who put their energy and time into helping to coordinate that event. So far this year, the weather, courtesy of Mother Nature, has been kind to us and sent weather that supported our success to our outside events. The foundation of the camp’s financial support has always been dependent upon the success of our fundraising events, most of which take place outdoors. Keeping the concept of “camp” in these events is important for the Rotarians, also, so it makes perfect sense that the beauty of the camp be showcased and enjoyed during these events.

We are hopeful that this good weather holds out for the two weekends involved in our annual Spooky Walk. We were lucky last year when Sandy hit after the final night had concluded, and we were able to get lots of cargo and supplies put away prior to the day of impact. Many of us gathered the morning before Sandy hit to complete taking down the large tents and securing some of the open exhibits.

Ironically, we were relatively unscathed by the fury of Sandy and the destruction that followed. Many here on Long Island were not so lucky and we have read and seen accounts of them all year long. We lost about 17 trees but suffered no structural damage to our cabins or to our brand-new dining hall.

All in all, we had a lucky year, with little damage, lots of great volunteer groups, wonderful events hosted by the Rotarians, and friends of the Rotarians. We should be thankful.

Please see our website for an upcoming event in memory of Jodi Shapiro, who will be honored and remembered for her work with special populations. The event takes place on October 19 and Mark Shapiro, Jodi’s brother, has informed us that all proceeds from this event will be donated to the camp in Jodi’s honor. Our deepest appreciation goes out to those families who remember Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck during the saddest times in their lives. We are truly humbled and most grateful. Until next time…

Yours in Camping,
Bridget Costello
Executive Director
