BELGRADE – Camp Bomazeen hosted its annual Haunted Woods program on October 2.

Young people dressed as their favorite character or monster roamed historic Horse Point Road camp, visiting Halloween-themed stations.

Over 60 young people and adults participated in the program, led by 15 Scout volunteers. Activities included a visit to the haunted medical pavilion, baking caramel and chocolate stuffed apples, archery, decorating pumpkins, ball gun shooting, frisbee disc, hay rides and making mud.

Representative Dan Newman from Belgrade kicked off the event by presenting the Maine state flag to the camp, used as part of the flag opening ceremony.

Newman had never presented a flag to someone disguised as a penguin, as camp director Julie McKenney was for the event, but he knows Bomazeen well. He had come to camp for many summers when he was growing up in Windsor.
