Not so Scary Stories


Learnin’ Vernon

Sandy Pond Campground

Plymouth, MA

Registered campers will meet Learnin’ Vernon around the campfire for some “Not so Scary Stories“.

This program was created to provide parents and camp councilors a break from the traditional Ghost tales that left Children scared for days. These fun and harmless tales allow the children to still be a part of the classic campfire culture without the fear. Original and folk ghost tales are shared with a discussion on fear resolution for 5-10 year olds and their caregivers. 45 minutes

A teen and adult “Share a Scare” version may follow if there is enough interest. at 9:30pm

Remember these shows are for registered campers only so call now for your campsite!

Why not mark Columbus Day weekend for your last camping trip of the season.
Where better to visit than Sandy Pond Camp ground minutes from Historical Plymouth Mass?
