Family fun at Camp Dearborn
Halloween Weekends at Camp Dearborn Oct 8 to 10 and 15 to 17 will include activities such as hayrides (top) and mummy wrapping (above).

Dearborn — Camp Dearborn, the Dearborn-owned recreational facility in Milford again is planning two Halloween Weekends Oct. 8 to 10 and 15 to 17.

Each year hundreds of families take part in the fun of decorating their campsites and enjoying the autumn activities.

Each weekend begins with a Spooky Monster Magic Show by Russ Gordon at 8 p.m. Friday that will amuse the entire family. After the show, campers can jump on a hay wagon for a ride around the camp before returning to their campsites.

One pumpkin is given to each family as they check in Friday to carve at their campsite and join in Saturday’s first activity, the pumpkin carving contest. Saturday’s activities continue with a mummy wrap, games, costume parade and contest, and more hayrides.

All activities lead to the highlight of every Halloween celebration, trick-or-treating. Trick-or-treaters of all ages run safely from campsite to campsite begging for candy from 6:30 to 8 p.m. All traffic is stopped during this period to ensure the safety of the children.

Reservations for the Halloween Weekends can be made by calling either of the Camp Dearborn offices: (313) 943-2350 or (248) 684-6000. Camp Dearborn has 118 tents and 30 rustic cabins for rent, and 191 campsites for visitors who bring their own recreational vehicle, tent or pop-up.

Halloween campers are advised to bring plenty of candy for trick-or-treaters.
