The party was were groups spent the majority of their evening. This is where groups showed off their awesome costumes that they worked on earlier that day. Each group created a monster which they brought to be displayed at the party as well. Campers had the option to have either their palm read or their fortune told to them via a crystal ball. They also danced the night away and munched on caramel corn and Halloween candy.
Each group was taken to our Rec Hall where normally we store all of our camping equipment. The building was transformed into an asylum themed haunted house. Led by two creepy zombie dolls and filled with our staff members dressed as patients of the asylum, we sure got a few screams out of the campers!
Then campers got to explore a spooky side of camp on the hayride. This was nothing like Arrowhead’s usual hayride where groups sing songs and get a tour of camp’s beauty. Instead they were taken all over camp where non counseling staff had set up creepy stations in every hidden corner of the property. Zombies, clowns, witches and an exorcism were all included in the scare tactics among many others. It is safe to say that eve though everyone got a little spooked, everyone had a fun night.
After all of the excitement groups headed to bed. Since we were up a little late last night, everyone got to sleep in an extra hour which was a nice reward for everyone’s hard work. Since it is Monday we have a new batch of day campers and we are back to our regular schedule! Here’s to making this week as fun as last week!
