Spooky-ree is a fall themed weekend filled with a fall festival, creepy-crawly nature show, pumpkin carving and decorating, archery, BBs, s'mores, and a campfire.  The highlight of the weekend is the Trick-or-Treating Trail for all Scouts and an extra spooky haunted trail for the older Scouts and adults.

Your family can cook your own meals in your campsite or eat in our new, air-conditioned dining hall.  You can also rent a camp tent, complete with your own built-in bed and power outlets!  Flushing toilets and private showers are featured throughout the camp.
