This year we get to continue the Haunted Forest of McGimsey Scout Park! Come join us October 23, 2021 from 6pm-9pm at McGimsey Scout Park with the Alamo Area Council. We are in search of some troops, ships, and venture crews to help us by taking on one of the spooktacular areas and creating some spooky scenes and to staff them for the duration of the event.
Let’s give our community and Scout families a fun activity that exudes the spirit of Halloween. This year will be slightly different since you and your group will get to choose the theme. We want you to take ownership and be excited for your site. Your theme must be decided by October 2nd. After that date, we will be providing a theme from a previously selected list.
We will be outside, and social distancing is still recommended. In full, you’ll be asked to use your creativity to come up with a theme, design your area, decorate it, set it up, and staff it for the duration of the entire event. We do have some supplies and can also help if you need. Let us know, and we will help how we can. You have the entire day (October 23,2021) to do your set up at your site. To maintain YPT standards, adults will be required to be present for each volunteer group.
In addition, another volunteer opportunity would be the day before the event, Friday, October 22. We will have a prep day where we get ready for the big event on Saturday. The day of the event, we could use the extra hands to help us set up. I know there are some people more available to help during these times and that want to assist but can’t help out during the event.
We cannot wait to see all the areas that are set up that will set the stage this Halloween. Here is a link for you to sign up for a station. If you have any questions, you can also reach out Contact Here.
Your creative display and your enthusiastic energy are what is going to help serve our community and Scouting families.
