4-H at The Haunt

This page is for 4-H families volunteering to help with The Haunt Fundraiser.  We will continue to update throughout the Haunt Season — please check back often!

Calling all Ozaukee 4-H youth and adults to help with THE HAUNT!

Why get involved? Why volunteer?…

  • Your volunteer hours count towards your club’s profits from the Haunt, and the rest of the proceeds support countywide activities & experiences for Ozaukee County 4-H youth!
  • There are also college scholarships for youth who consistently work at The Haunt through their 4-H career.
  • It’s a great way to raise funds, meet new people
  • Have fun with your 4-H friends while SCARING your community friends and strangers alike
  • Learn new skills like construction, props, staging, make-up, costuming, and MUCH more!

Check the list below for various opportunities. We’re waiting for you….Mwah-ha-ha-ha!!!
