Loch-Sloy Holdings and Escape Camp Picton are working in partnership with “Raising a Village Quinte” to create a scary but safe Halloween experience from the safety of your own vehicle.

]This Oct 30 and 31, the Loch-Sloy Business Park & Airport will become a drive-thru haunted house from 6 p.m.-11 p.m. We invite guests to drive-thru our park and experience the eerie location, the airbase’s history and view haunted sites created by tenants of the Loch-Sloy Business Park and local artists.

This project will be a family friendly experience for our community, keeping the scariness to a PG-13 rating so all can enjoy.

We understand that due to Covid-19, this Halloween might be a different experience then we are used to. We hope that “Ghosts of Camp Picton” can be a fun option for locals, friends and family to attend this Halloween in a safe and fun Halloween environment!

Admission is a flat rate of 20$ per vehicle (tickets will be on sale online with small fee and in cash at Books & Company). The tickets are timed entry, to help facilitate our covid-safe protocols. The Picton Fire Fighter Association is volunteering at this event to help manage traffic and safety. Ghosts of Camp Picton will also be hosting a Pumpkin Carving contest in partnership with local charity “Raising a Village Quinte”. Participants can pick up a free pumpkin the week before the event and enter to win various prize packs donated by local businesses.

Guests will be able to drive by our pumpkin display and see the pumpkin masterpieces and winners!
