Executive Director's Report

It seems like just yesterday that we were preparing for the opening of the 2013 summer season; now we are in the home stretch. We have had a lot of new campers this year and that means that more and more families have put their faith and trust in Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck. This is welcome news as this is an important part of what we try to accomplish throughout the rest of the year.

Fall is a time of mixed emotions for us here at Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck. We miss the sights and sounds of our summer sessions, but we also enjoy a little breather, taking time to exhale after the busy summer. We do, for sure, find ourselves invigorated by the crisp fall weather and the events that are to come this fall.

For starters, we have the Moriches Rotary's annual Oktoberfest at Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck which takes place during the weekend of September 27th-29th. Please see the camp's website for more details.

Oktoberfest is followed by several weekends of "spooky" preparation which precede one of the camp's largest and longest-running fundraisers, the Spooky Walk. This fundraiser is hosted by the Moriches Paquatuck Squaws, who work tirelessly to run this event over two weekends each Halloween. This year celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Spooky Walk. If you are intrigued by ghoulish delights, come on down. If you are not fond of scary things, then come on down anyway and join us for music, dancing, and all sorts of homemade edible goodies, including candy apples, roasted corn, and much more! To learn more, visit

Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck has just resumed its parent meetings with the first one being held last weekend following our monthly respite program. We discussed next year's schedule, as well as a few ideas for fundraising. Stay tuned as I believe we will see great things from this dedicated group of parents.

The Patrons are another wonderful group of people who support the camp. They are hosting a Casino Night at Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck on November 16th. For all of you that are feeling lucky, please come down to support this very hardworking group who exist to support the efforts of the camp. Stay tuned for more information on the camp's website.

The Friends of Bradstock have offered to create a lighted tree sculpture on the campgrounds this fall. If you are out at the camp for an event or just stopping in to say hello, please ask us to show you where this new sculpture is located. Created from a tree downed by Superstorm Sandy, it will be a beacon of light seen throughout most areas of the camp.

Around the camp, in addition to some painting, we have begun to clip back some of the foliage and we are getting ready for the leaves to fall!! We are sad to see summer go, but happy to be thinking of 2014 and the possibilities for next summer.

Yours in camping,

Bridget Costello
