Camp Fontanelle accommodates an array of autumnal events at the fall of each year, treating patrons to delightfully seasonal activities. Weighing up to 30 pounds, gourds and pumpkins grown in a nearly two-acre patch await the artistic touch of nimble blade slingers, whose intricate carvings turn rows of faceless pumpkins into glowing jack-o'-lanterns, seed-filled sculptures, or carriages for enchanted princesses. Camp Fontanelle litters its maze with corn-cluttered dead ends and forked paths, coaxing puzzle solvers through twists and turns along the entire 10-acre stretch. A haunted version of the hall of husks lures flashlight-wielding voyagers along a ghoulish labyrinth—replete with rustling corn, spooky mannequins, and embarrassing baby photos—on October 21, 22 and 29 from 7 to 10 p.m.

From 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Camp Fontanelle's corn maze transmutes into an outdoor laser-tag arena, strapping digitally programmed taggers onto competing teams that vie to rack up the most points. Free hayrides on Saturday and Sunday tour the grounds at a leisurely pace, and a free petting zoo corrals herds of friendly farm animals ideal for stroking, feeding, or gleaning insider stock information.

Camp Fontanelle

Trent Meyer and Derek Bergman are committed members of the United Methodist Church, and sometimes choose to practice their faith through tree climbing, zip lining, swimming, and laser tag. They direct the United Methodist-run Camp Fontanelle, a year-round outdoor camp sprawled across more than 180 wooded acres of donated land. Both Trent and Derek draw from backgrounds as campers—and Trent from six years as a teacher—to lead summer camps for preschool through high-school students. They lead a team of camp counselors who coordinate harnessed-rope tree climbing, activities on low-ropes courses, archery lessons, and outdoor laser-tag matches.

They also draw visitors at different times of year with water slides, a 35'x65' jumping pillow and bounce houses, a petting barn filled with alpacas and goats, and pony rides. During the autumn-harvest season, they unveil the annual theme of a 10-acre corn maze filled with 5 miles of trails. A 3-acre pumpkin patch contains small and large carving pumpkins, gourds, mums, and Indian corn, which visitors can harvest and stuff into a large, horn-shaped wicker basket.
