All people, regardless of ability level, have the right to opportunities found in the world around them. Individuals with disabilities, as well as their families, should experience year-round recreational and respite care activities in a camp setting. Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck of New York provides this needed service to all. The camp provides opportunities for social and personal growth within a supportive environment. Campers learn to try a variety of creative and challenging activities and experience success.
Our well-equipped activity centers provide a wide variety of fun-filled and challenging opportunities for campers. Therapeutic activities are adaptively designed to match the pace and ability of each camper. Positive development is nurtured in a non-competitive atmosphere. In addition to activities listed below, we also feature many special events at camp, such as, out-of-camp trips, birthday celebrations, plays, musical performances and much more. Our Arts & Crafts program encompasses painting, drawing, woodcrafts, art therapy, ceramics, fabric art and numerous group projects. Our therapeutic music program awakens the hidden abilities of campers through participation in folk singing, drumming and the playing of various musical instruments and camper-made ones. Campers can find their own musical voice and the opportunity to enjoy self-expression. Many musical styles are featured, from Pop to Hip Hop to Rock.
