SOC After Dark

October 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10.00 - $35.00
Fall is the perfect time for stories around the campfire. And that’s just the beginning!

Fall is the perfect time to gather around the campfire with friends for some not-too-scary stories. Popular local storyteller Ken Karnas will be our featured speaker at this Pre-Halloween event. Throughout his 42-year teaching career, Ken used stories to enhance every academic area he taught. In addition to using storytelling in the classroom, Ken has shared his tales with audiences of all ages in libraries, museums, parks, and at NJSOC’s Piney Point fire circle.

Following the storytelling, you’re invited to join us for a not-at-all-scary night hike. Discover the beauty of Stokes State Forest by moonlight and learn about some of its residents who are active at night on this easy hike along an open path.

Or, if you prefer, bring some marshmallows and hang out at the campfire, or head over to the corral for some stargazing on your own.

Come just for the campfire and stories (about 30-40 minutes), or stay longer and enjoy the SOC “nightlife”. It’s up to you!

This program is open to adults and families with children of any age. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Registration is required for each individual. In case of inclement weather, we’ll move the storytelling indoors and hike as planned as long as the rain isn’t heavy.

If you have any difficulty with the registration process, please let us know so we can help! Contact us at info@friendsofnjsoc.org.
