Halloween Hike (annually in October)

The Halloween Hike is a beloved tradition in Louisa County. Each hike has a different theme and participants move along a trail while stopping to watch fun, entertaining, & educational skits! Volunteers are needed each year to assit with preparing costumes, props, and sets prior to the hike. On the day of the event, volunteers are needed to assist with setup/cleanup, registration, refreshments, leading hikes. 

Every year an enthusasitc group of volunteers are needed to perform the actual skits that make the Halloween Hike so special! Scripts, costumes, and dinner are all provided to these wonderful volunteers. This is a great opportunity for Scout Troops, 4H Groups, or any other youth organization to get involved in their community in a fun and exciting way!
