PATCHOGUE, N.Y. - April 17, 2013 - PRLog -- (Center Moriches, NY) — For the first time, Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck (http://camppaquatuck.com/) is hosting a Special Needs Resource Fair, which will take place on April 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Visitors will have the opportunity to meet representatives of Long Island’s many leading service providers. There will be tables for children’s services, transition services and technology, in addition to legal and advocacy providers.

“This is a great venue for business owners or nonprofit agencies who may have a special-needs child to exhibit at our event,” said Bridget Costello, Director, Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck. “We urge everyone to join us as we aim to provide an informative experience for all of our attendees and all of your special needs.”
