Halloween Camp 2014 Recap!

Last weekend an awesome and enthusiastic group of Campers joined us for 24 hours of Halloween fun!  Over 85 campers and staff enjoyed traditional camp activities, songs and meals—all with a Halloween twist!

Friday evening began with campers meeting their counselors, playing sandlot games like, 4 square, GaGa and Scatterball. A spooky dinner was served: spaghetti and blood (marinara) sauce with dirt and worms (pudding, Oreos and gummy worms) for dessert. Returning campers were amazed to see Pendalouan in the Fall with leaves blowing and Nikana Lodge fully decorated with Halloween fun!

The festivities continued with a good ol' fashioned Pendalouan Hootenanny. Cabins traveled around camp participating in different challenges and group games, including the Haunted Trail (scare-factor modified for each age group). Camp joined back together for a traditional Pendalouan Campfire at Great Bear Fire Circle!

Saturday greeted us with beautiful fall weather! In fact, it was the best weather we've had for Halloween Camp in years! 67 degrees and sunny! Campers were able to choose between activities such as Archery, the Climbing Wall, Halloween crafts, a Sleepy Hollow Hike and more. Before lunch, camp regrouped for all camp games on the sports field.

After lunch, we gathered on the deck of the lodge for a camp favorite, (with a Halloween twist) Capture the Scarecrow! After the Scarecrows were assempled, Campers changed into their costumes and joined the hunt for the missing candy. When the candy was discovered and eaten, we finished off the weekend with a Halloween Carnival. Games like Cornhole, Pin the Wart on the Witch, Bingo, Mummify-a-Counselor and more were played in and around the lodge. 

A big thank you to all who could make it!  If you didn’t get the chance to come this year, be sure to mark your calendar for 2015!
