11:30 - 1 p.m. - COSTUMES WITH A PRO

Join Indiana Arts in the Park artist Jerry Jascoviak at the Campground Shelter for a special “treat” of a program. Jerry will be on hand to assist in creating costumes themed to nature or to help you by providing that perfect prop for the costume you already have.


Bring the kids and meet at the Campground Shelter by campsite #113 for pumpkin craft fun. There will be limited supplies and our free pumpkins will go fast. 


All campers will receive one voting ballot at check-in.  Judges will determine the spookiest, most creative, funniest, and most original campsites. Winners will be announced at the Nature Center at the beginning of the Owl Prowl Program at 8 p.m.
