“Where Summer is for Everyone”
Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck – dedicated to the benefit of special needs individuals of Long Island and beyond – stands today, not from the efforts of one organization, but rather as a culmination of a tremendous wave of effort from many Rotary Clubs throughout District 7260.

Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck, The Moriches Rotary Health Camp, Inc., maintains a more than 70-year track record for making the dreams of individuals with disabilities a reality. Each year, they invite thousands of campers to enjoy a session of summer fun at their 37-acre site on the shores of Kaler’s Pond in Center Moriches.

At Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck, their campers experience the joys of boating, arts and crafts, music, adaptive sports and games, swimming, campfires and more. In a supportive environment, their counselors encourage campers to reach outside their comfort zones and join with their fellow campers in activities designed to enhance their lives.

The WELLNESS FOUNDATION through groundbreaking education, support, and inspiration, has been empowering children and adults to take control of their health and build a community where healthy choices are accessible and affordable.
Founded in 2005 by Douglas Mercer, a visionary man committed to building a healthy community, Wellness Foundation is a small team of passionate wellness warriors doing BIG things! Our forward-thinking team and world class advisory council is made up of pioneers, visionaries, and trailblazers on the cutting edge of plant-powered health and wellness.

They teach people about the power they have to take control of their health and, as a result, help them to transform their lives. Within our community, we’re working hard to end the trend of obesity and the chronic diseases associated with it—and they have ignited a spark in other wellness warriors around the country who want to bring our world class programs to their communities.
Wellness Foundation is in the business of helping people build happy, healthy lives and they are committed to helping them prevent and reverse chronic disease through the power of plant-based nutrition.

i-tri girls is helping to empower girls and transform lives. i-tri girls learn to believe in themselves, and that can change everything. Along the journey to the finish line of a youth distance triathlon, our girls discover that they are capable, strong and brave. They make connections that show them that while they are unique, they’re definitely not alone. Side by side, with new friends, i-tri girls learn to go inward to find their own strengths and to help others find theirs. i-tri girls are not triathletes. Rather, we use the sport of triathlon to give them a goal that is seemingly impossible, that is overwhelming and scary. And then we give them the physical and mental tools to achieve that goal.

i-tri is free.
All equipment, training and transportation are provided for free to every girl because we believe personal circumstances should not hold any girl back from reaching her potential. That makes i-tri different. It isn’t about where you come from. It’s about where you are going. No one has to ask for a scholarship or a favor, and we empower our girls to help themselves, as they participate in fundraising throughout the year.



New Hope Rising was founded in 2014 when Co-Founders Danielle Bruschi and Lauren McNamara joined together with a shared vision of creating an innovative model for recovery housing programs on Long Island. New Hope Rising Recovery Housing Programs were created in response to a shortage of safe, supportive and structured housing for individuals with substance-use disorders seeking to build a foundation for long term recovery in our community. 


In June of 2017 of New Hope Rising opened the Therapy and Wellness Center in Westhampton Beach with the belief that everyone should have access to quality behavioral healthcare and wellness services. The Center’s purpose is to provide a high level of care and affordable services to all those seeking help, support, and wellness in our community.

Coalition for Women's Cancers at Southampton Hospital was formed recognizing the need for a community network in support of women’s cancers. The local, volunteer-driven group is comprised of professionals and concerned friends with varied backgrounds and talents. This group has come together to create and sustain a supportive network for women affected by breast, ovarian and uterine cancers.  The organization focuses on early detection and empowerment to bring about better health care and an improved quality of life. 

The CWC is headed by Susan Barry Roden with Stacy Quarty as the group’s Vice President, Lee Alleluia as Secretary and Gwen McGowan as Treasurer. 


Hudson's Helping Hands was inspired by their son, Hudson, they are passionate about bringing awareness, inclusivity, and support to our community.

They have always felt there was a lack of outreach, information, and community for young families who are in the first stages of their childs diagnosis. As they continued through the motions and entered into new stages, the need and urgency for these supports became even more evident. 

In the summer of 2020, most resources and schools for children on the spectrum chose not to operate due to Covid-19.  As summer camps and programs for typical children carried on,  they were inspired to develop an integrated summer program for children on the spectrum and their siblings. 

As a result, Hudsons Helping Hands was founded.Through donations and volunteers their goal is to provide continuous learning experiences, integrated events, and family support for our local communities.  

Marty Lyons Foundation  was established in 1982 to fulfill the wishes of children ages three (3) to seventeen (17) years old who have been diagnosed with a terminal or life-threatening illness.  Granting wishes today for a better tomorrow!


Hamptons Community Outreach works to bridge the opportunity gap experienced by underserved youth, families, and others across our community. Our goal is to elevate the quality of life of local children, families, and seniors—addressing their basic physical and emotional needs, while nurturing young people creatively and academically. We bring people of diverse backgrounds together in a spirit of service, generosity, and kindness.

Fighting Chance is America’s oldest and largest free cancer counseling center that operates on a regional basis, in our case the Eastern End of Long Island, which is about 600 square miles and largely semi-rural.

Because of our regional service model, we can (and do) have a walk-in office in Sag Harbor where patients will find “boots on the ground.” That means licensed health care professionals – including a clinical psychologist and oncology social workers – who can meet with the patient in person.

In person counseling is the “gold standard” when helping a newly-diagnosed cancer patient cope with the negative psychological effects of cancer that include hyper-anxiety, depression, insecurity, and sleeplessness. In-person counseling is better, by far, than telephone calls, email counseling, chat rooms, or the use of two-way videos.

As of 2019, Fighting Chance has added a second patient counseling office within the Stony Brook Southampton Hospital Phillips Family Cancer Center to facilitate the ongoing need for our free cancer counseling services.

Southampton Day Care Center was founded by Southampton resident Kathleen Davis in 1986 under the name "Fountain of Youth". Ms. Davis saw the need for safe, nurturing, low cost day care services for pre-school children of working parents. During the next fourteen years the center moved out of her home into the basement of a local church, received tax exempt status from the Department of the Treasury, and converted an overgrown vacant lot on David White's Lane into a sound and attractive building and playground. They  began operation there in January of 2001. Their license permits them to admit up to 30 children. They remain the only not-for-profit providers of these services in the local area.

Their staff consists of two certified teachers, two assistant teachers and a full time director. The Board of Directors is a diverse group of local residents all of whom are year-round residents of the area. Their clients represent a cross section of local residents. They admit children from 18 months to five years and offer an attractive pre-school setting while providing day care.  Hours of operation are from 7 am to 6 pm - five days per week and they are open all year.

This is truly a community effort. They have enjoyed the support of many volunteers from the village, the town and beyond. Village and town officials have been helpful to them at every step. Many individuals have been generous in their cash donations. The Board of Directors has worked hard to coordinate all of this generosity and channel it into this project.

Heart of the Hamptons assists 1,500 people annually with the help of 50 volunteers and an active Board of Directors. The headquarters at 168 Hill Street in Southampton Village is home to the Southampton Food Pantry serving over 500 households (1500 people), the Clothing Room, and an outreach office for Executive Director Hilton Crosby. Services include a multi-faceted Assistance Program offering crisis intervention, medical assistance funding, aid for seniors, school supplies and summer lunches for school children, and a meals program for the homebound. Heart of the Hamptons also connects people in need with resources available in our local community.
