The boy Scouts' annual Halloween party draws about 3,000 people to Camp Miakonda at 5600 W. Sylvania Ave., the sixth-oldest Boy Scout camp in the country. A natural forest in Sylvania Township, the camp was transformed into a spooky scene, with many of its wooded cabins serving as mini-haunted houses or candy stations to dole out tricks and treats. Boy Scouts and the public were invited to a party Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon.
Some of the cabins had activities, such as bobbing for apples, plucking for ducks, or the corn hole game.
Representatives of Safe Kids Greater Toledo turned a cabin into a Halloween awareness setting, teaching kids and parents how to check candy and trick-or-treat safely. Forest trails and the camp's fort were transformed into haunted-house settings with strobe lights and fog.
