Last weekend, Camp Massawippi had its first Halloween respite weekend!  




We were busy getting ready for the big night! First, we did a Halloween quiz around camp. This allowed Magdalena, who was with us for the first time, to get to know the place. Here are some questions (answers at the end of the blog post): 

1. What is the top-selling chocolate bar in the world?

  • Kit Kat
  • Reese
  • Oh Henry!
  • Snickers

2. According to an ancient belief, it is good luck to see a ________ on Halloween.

  • Spider
  • Bat
  • Pumpkin
  • Black Cat

3. What is the name of the school of witchcraft and wizardry situated in England?  

  • Cambridge
  • Beaubâton
  • Hogwarts
  • Oxford

Then, we did some pumpkin carving. Each camper had its own pumpkin and was free to decorate it the way he or she wanted. Émilie made an Olaf, Dominic an emoji, Kim a Jack-O-Lantern and Sonia decorated hers the good old way. 

Finally, we got costumed and had an early dinner just in time to go trick or treating!  

We had a spooky welcome at Charles-Étienne’s house, our waterki team leader. 

We walked along Round Bay road then we turned right on Ripplecove drive and continued all the way to the Ripplecove Hotel! 

Families we met were very accommodating. Thank you to the community for this beautiful night!


Back at camp, we went through our candies and drank a bit a blood, freshly prepared by Virgo. 




It was a rainy Sunday at Ayer’s Cliff so we opted for indoor activities. 

We did natural prints with Fall leaves and Sylvie painted some scary faces.  

It was an incredible weekend!


We truly hope you can join us for our next respite weekend on November 27th, 28th, 29th for the countdown to Christmas!
