Volunteers Needed for the Spy Camp Lock-In

Looking for some community service hours? The Spy Camp Lock-In on Saturday, December 7th, needs your help! We have an ambitious line up of games and activities, and a few good volunteers would really make a difference.

We are going to make something like this. Want to help?

We are going to make something like this. Want to help?

Some of the things you’ll be doing:

  • blowing up balloons for the minefield
  • stringing red crepe paper for the laser beam obstacle course
  • gathering marshmallows from the mini catapults
  • popping all of those balloons at the end of the program

If you’re interested, contact me (Dianne) at the Help Desk at (845) 986-1047 ext. 3 or via email at

Volunteers interested in setting up should arrive by 4pm. Volunteers who would like to help clean up should be prepared to stay until 9:30pm. Bring along any paperwork you need signed to prove your volunteer hours, and I’ll sign it that evening.

Thanks, everyone!

So what else happened at the last meeting? We made some decisions about our Halloween Lock-In, which will take place on Oct. 26th from 5pm to 9pm. TAB has planned a bunch of fun things to scare and entertain you, so please come! You must be in 6th grade or older to attend.

Our Halloween Lock-In will feature:

  • A haunted house (really!!)
  • Cosplay contest
  • Pin the head on the zombie
  • Pumpkin carving contest
  • Halloween trivia contest
  • Bobbing for apples
  • And a chance to share your own ghost story (or just listen to others…)
