Halloween Camp! What Spooktacular Fun!

Last weekend, Pendalouan welcomed 90 children to camp for our annual Halloween Camp! Our Halloween Camp went for 24 hours and included dinner on Friday, and Breakfast and Lunch on Saturday.

Friday night was a real treat! After settling into their cabins and eating a delicious dinner of worms and eyeball sauce, zombie fingers, and racoon toenails (spaghetti & meatballs, breadsticks, green beans), cabins took turns making their way through our haunted health lodge. The scare-factor was adjusted to each age level as to make sure our younger campers were not too frightened. Cabin groups also had time to work together and prepare a skit or song for campfire! We had cabins perform spooky versions of their favorite camp songs and creative skits involving vampires, werewolves and witches!

On Saturday, after breakfast, campers were able to choose between Archery, Climbing Wall, Candle-Making, BB Guns and a Sleepy Hollow Hike during our Rendezvous Choice-Time. Before lunch we also played an all camp game where kids tried to save Halloween from Dentists who were trying to get rid of the holiday! After lunch, we played a game of Capture the Ghost! Instead of our usual Red & Blue bandanas on our CTF poles, we had red and blue ghosts!

After changing into their costumes, campers trick 0r treated around camp at various locations and met up to finish their stay with a Halloween Carnival around the lodge. Games included: Musical Chairs to Halloween Classics, Pin the Wart on the Witch, Pumpkin Bozo Buckets, and more.

Thanks to all who could make it! Check back on our facebook soon for more pictures! If you didn't get the chance to come this past year, make sure to mark your Calendar for next year to guarantee a spooktacular good time!
