Fall Respite 2015 Schedule
Each session is designed to help the campers achieve equality, dignity, and maximum independence through a safe and quality program of camping, recreation, and education in a summertime environment. The camp aims to help each child reach beyond the limits of their physical and mental challenges, encouraging them to join fellow campers in activities.
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.
Check-in is at 8 p.m. on Friday evening and campers leave at 3 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. During respite weekends, the camp will be staffed by Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck’s counselors and the camp nurse.
Campers can participate in various activities, including baking, arts and crafts, games, music and movies. There is a new theme each weekend. Camp resources are packed away until next summer, so campers’ families are reminded to pack sheets, blankets, pillows, towels and toiletries.
“We are excited to bring back this wonderful fall program,” says Camp Director Bridget Costello. “Our camp is designed to give children and young adults the opportunity to be themselves, and parents a chance to relax while their sons and daughters have fun and are cared for in a safe environment.”
The cost of each weekend for the remainder of 2015 (Friday to Sunday) is $350 and 2016 respite weekends will cost $395.
