Halloween Camp 2013 Recap!


Last weekend, we had our biggest Halloween Camp in Pendalouan history! From 5pm Friday to 5pm Saturday, over 100 campers enjoyed traditional camp activities, games, and meals - all with a Halloween twist!

Friday night started with campers meeting their counselors, playing games like 4 Square, GaGa, and Scatterball, and eating a meal that you wouldn't see during regular summer camp (see left)... Returning campers were amazing to see what Pendy looks like in the Fall and to see Nikana Lodge decorated with Halloween lights, pictures and props!

In the evening, cabin groups took turns walking through our Haunted Health Lodge. The scare-factor was adjusted for each age level as to make sure our younger campers were not too frightened. Cabins also competed against each other in the Halloween Camp Hootenanny, a series of challenges that included block stacking, stuffed animal tossing, relay races and more! Camp then joined back all together for a good ol' fashioned Pendalouan Campfire at Great Bear Fire Circle!

On Saturday, campers were able to choose between Archery, the Climbing Wall, a Pumpkin Craft, BB Guns, Parachute Games, Candle-making, a Sleepy Hollow Hike and more! Before lunch we also played an all camp game where campers were split up as either Dentists or Halloween Creatures to see which team had the most Halloween spirit!

After lunch, we had more camp activities and then we played a game of Capture the Flag! Campers then changed into their costumes and went looking for clues to see where all the Halloween candy was hidden! After putting all the puzzle pieces together and getting their candy, all of camp met up to finish the weekend with a Halloween Carnival in and around the lodge. Games included: Pin the Wart on the Witch, Pumpkin Bozo Buckets, Mummify-A-Counselor, Bingo, and more!

Thanks to all who could make it! If you didn't get the chance to come this past year, make sure to mark your calendar for next year (October 24-25, 2014) to guarantee a spooktacular good time!
