From the Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County:
Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County has created a truly scary experience in the woods of northern Harford County, nestled near Deer Creek. Valley of the Haunted, which opened last weekend, is crawling with flesh-hungry zombies, maniacal clowns, and more, all led by the twisted mind of one little boy who lived on the property over 200 years ago. It’s a must-visit haunted attraction.
Valley of the Haunted is a haunted trail conceived and produced by Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County. The trail provides visitors with plenty of scares along the one-mile, walking trail at Camp Hidden Valley in White Hall, Maryland. Valley of the Haunted rose from the dead on October 16 and runs each weekend through October 31.
“Our property at Camp Hidden Valley in northern Harford County serves as an amazing location to bring together friends and visitors from near and far to experience the terror of the undead that haunt our woods, only in October,” said Tim Wills, executive director and chief kid officer for Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County. “As an avid haunt enthusiast myself, I can assure you that our dedicated staff and volunteers put together an experience that will truly knock your socks off.”
While the haunted trail isn’t for the faint of heart, parents looking for a family-friendly event should consider Valley of the Haunted this season. Little Haunts Sundays provide younger children with a fun and spook-free time, including trick or treating on the trail, pumpkin painting, a hay maze, and more.
Valley of the Haunted is funded as part of a Tourism-Related Competitive Grant awarded by the Harford County Office of Economic Development, allowing Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County the ability to produce an event for citizens and guests to enjoy all that Harford County has to offer. The funding provided by the competitive grant process also indirectly assists local businesses and restaurants by increasing traffic when visitors converge upon Harford County for the new event.
In addition, the event also benefits Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County by creating awareness of its life-enhancing programs and character development experiences, which have been provided to Harford County children and young adults for 25 years. With locations throughout Harford County, Boys and Girls Clubs offer dedicated facilities for after-school activities, employ full-time youth development professionals and provide specialized programs, including character development, educational enhancement and career exploration.
