Haunted Woods & Campfire

Date(s): 10/25/2013, 10/26/2013, 10/31/2013

October 25, 26 31 from 4:00PM-9:00PM.

Woodlawn Nature Center Elkhart, IN
Guided tours along The Scarecrow’s Way, part of Woodlawn Nature Center’s Haunted Trail, will be conducted be free of charge but tickets will be required. Just as seating is limited in a theater, there is a limited number of people that can be taken through the tours. Tickets will be available at the door as they last but can also be picked up at the Center Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from noon to 5.

Woodlawn Nature Center will be giving guided tours through their haunted woods and providing other family oriented activities from 4PM to 9 PM on Friday October 25, Saturday October 26 and, of course, Halloween night, Thursday October 31.

Three other premium trails and other attractions will be available those nights as a fundraising effort to replace the Center’s 50 year old floor. Rates are scaled to be family friendly with special packages and discounts for members of Woodlawn Nature Center.

The annual festivities have been growing both in scope and popularity over the years partly because their offerings range from mild to wild to fit different ages and temperaments. This year this includes a campfire with songs, stories and marshmallows where nothing scary is allowed. Around the campfire, short-term child care is provided for the more mature (or fool hardy) who want to experience the more frightening aspects of the deeper, darker woods.

Each tour through the woods will be lead by a guide past staged scares and scenery. This year’s theme is Grimm’s Haunting, featuring characters from Grimm’s fairy tales.

There will also be attractions and refreshments offered inside the Center. The cave (normally home to dinosaurs) will feature bats and spiders. It will also have special treats buried in the cave’s sandboxes for the kids to discover (and take home). Snakes and nocturnal creatures will be themed throughout the museum with some of the more interesting though less creepy side of their story being told.
