Join Waters End Academy’s Vampire Hunt, a guided adventure in and around the spookiest parts of Waters End. Supernatural activity is always at its greatest between the autumn equinox and Halloween. This year October includes two full moons. In addition to triggering the transition of Werewolves, the full moon is a favorite time for Vampires searching for prey.
During the Vampire Hunt, students will participate in a guided walk around the parks, paths, and common areas of Waters End to search for signs of creatures of the night. The walk will include a lecture on the history, nature, and defenses related to Vampires. By understanding the blood-sucking creatures and their weaknesses, students can overcome their fear of them.
Students will participate in questions and answers, look for tracks and clues, and confront then drive away Vampires. Students who don’t flee in horror and make it to the end of the event will earn extra school credit.
Students should take the 100-series introduction to Vampires prior to the event.
The faculty at Waters End Academy has reported sightings of two or more Vampires prowling the village over the past week. Be prepared for a Stake-Out!
Students should meet and gather at Seashell Park at 6:30 PM. The walk will begin as soon as the sun is fully down.
Students are encouraged to bring:
- Black or Dark Clothing
- Witch or Wizard Hats (optional)
- Witch or Wizard Capes or Cloaks (optional)
- Wand (optional)
- Flashlight (recommended)
- Cross or Rosary (Vampire defense)
- Salt (small bag – Vampire & Werewolf defense)
- Monster Charms (Werewolf and Vampire charms made during previous events)
- Masks are recommended
The event will last approximately one hour. It is highly likely that this event will include encounters with creatures of the night including Vampires, Werewolves, or Zombies. The event will be guided by adult chaperones. Parents are invited to join as they see fit. Depending on the number of participants, children may be divided into smaller groups to facilitate social distancing. The walk will set out from Seashell Park and then return there after the walk. Unaccompanied students will be escorted home after the event by the chaperones.
