The Po-Hi Key Club is getting ready to scare you with its version of a Haunted Cabin at the Camp McFadden FallFest this weekend.

" We’ll have spooky decorations and music and a few hidden surprises inside,” said Key Club sponsor and Summer Camp staff member Rachel Heick. “It’s perfect for elementary age children.”

This is just one of the many FallFest activities. Others include toasting marshmallows over a fire and making s’mores, a hayride to the north end of camp, a nature scanvenger hunt, learning about conservation and making fish pictures.

Other activities include canoeing and kayaking, finding a coin in the haystack and photo ops where children can look like a scarecrow. Children up to age 12 can enter the costume contest for prizes.

John Sutton, president of the Camp McFadden board, said lunch will be served.

" We’ll have hamburger platters and chicken nugget platters for your lunch for only $6,” he said.

The festival runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at Camp McFadden on Kaw Lake. There is a suggested donation of $3 for those over six. Under 6 are free. Come out and have a great day of family fun!
