Mark your calendars for the Cuivre River Halloween Spooktacular! This year’s Spooktacular is Cuivre’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The fun begins as your family taks a quiz to determine what house you will be sorted into (Gryffindor, the “Fantastic Bugs”; Ravenclaw, the “Fantastic Flyers”; Hufflepuff, the “Fantastic Furbearers”; or Slytherin, the “Fantastic Creepy Crawlers”). The Sorting Ceremony will take place after you visit the “Owlery” and watch our friends from Raptor Rehabilitation Project provide a program featuring live owls and other birds of prey.
After the Sorting Ceremony, your house Prefect will lead you on an adventure to learn about all of Cuivre’s Fantastic Creatures featured in each house. You will meet at least one Fantastic Creature at each stop (guarenteed to make you laugh!), and see live creatures up close. Along the way, you will make your very own Cuivre Fantastic Beasts booklet and earn your own “Cuivrezoologist” pin with your house name on it! All activities will take place at the beach. You can wear your Halloween costume, if you’d like.
Afterwards, in the campground, there will be trick or treating and a campsite decorating contest. Prizes will be awarded for the top decorated campsite in the basic loop and the electric loops! Small prizes will also be awarded for Best Costumes (adults too, but please keep it family-friendly) Visitors are welcome to join us even if you are not camping.
