Halloween Camp in Lismore Heritage Centre

Lismore Heritage Centre will host another frighteningly good Halloween Camp this midterm break from Tuesday 1st to Friday 4th November 2011.

In honour of the creepiest holiday of the year we will be giving arts, crafts, science, drama, cooking and games a grisly twist to keep bloodthirsty campers at bay. We will make voodoo dolls, ghosts that move, edible eyeballs and prepare the worst present in the world for someone unlucky that you love! We will be looking forward to Bonfire Night with our ‘Make A Guy’ competition. In science we will concoct bubbling potions, curdle milk to make brains and make colours run away in fright! There will be a spider obstacle course, skeleton scavenger hunt and much, much more packed into four fearsomely fun days.

Halloween Camp at Lismore Heritage Centre will be scaring the wits out of boys and girls aged 5-12 years. Each day at camp starts at 10pm and draws to a terrifying conclusion at 2pm. One day at camp costs €15 or the pluckiest of youngsters can attend all four days for €50.

To survive the day campers will need a healthy packed lunch and a drink. As all kids know, the best of fun can be messy so please come along in older clothes.

Booking is essential as places are strictly limited to the bravest and best campers we can find. If you think you’ve got what it takes call Arlene on 058-54975 or email Akenny@lismoreheritage.ie
