The Camp Fire Candy Sculpture Contest is an annual event held at Merle Hay Mall to kick-off our candy sales! Youth in Clubs sell candy once a year as their main fundraiser. Most of our youth (even those NOT in Club), use these funds to attend our summer Day Camp or Resident Camp programs. Companies and organizations from the community come together to build fun and creative sculptures using candy and other sweet treats. It is a free event and all the materials are provided by Camp Fire. Call the Camp Fire Service Center for more information (515)274-1501.
The evening is sure to thrill the whole family. Start your visit with the haunted forest trail with age appropriate scariness. Then head to the bonfire for s'mores, apple cider, and campfire stories. As a finishing touch, you may find yourself heading home with a prize from the costume and joke telling contests!
Location: Camp Hantesa
Cost: Free Will Donation
