SWAMP HAUNTED HIKES
Bluebonnet Swamp’s Haunted Hikes are designed especially for younger children. This program is an alternative to the commercial haunted houses, which are geared more for teenagers and adults. Participants learn about snakes, insects, rats, and other “creepy critters” as they stop at educational stations along the trail. Track down costumed characters to receive “treasures” then trek through the Swamp Graveyard to our Education Building for Carnival Games and Spooky Storytime. No scare tactics are used during this program, and participants are welcome to come in costume if they choose. All participants should bring a flashlight, because this program runs at night. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Join us at Haunted Hikes this year for tons of fun!
