If the weather is nice - ask about a campfire. We have marshmallow and hotdog roasting sticks you can use.


Sometimes we like to tell spooky stories around the fire. Feel the icy chill in your spine when the "ghost train" rumbles by on a moonless night. Only kids who can commune with the dead can see the ghost train and hear the screams of its passengers. Adults and "normal kids" can only hear the ghost train's wheels grinding on the track as it passes by;) Pray it doesn't stop here again. Can you tell the story of how the "Ghost Train" came to be?

Ask Storyteller Roger about "Harry the Hairy Ape," "Quasimoto's Replacement," or "Sir Thanks-a-Lot."
