The Mystery of Bigfoot In There

Therians have been sharing the legend of Bigfoot around the campfire for years. There has been a small group of Bigfoot hunters who have finally captured photos of the beast in the wild. Most recently, Camp-A-Palooza campers have spotted him out at Camp Cubby.

Every Tuesday night, campers meet at Camp Headquarters and set out on a hike to a new camp location. Once the campers have descended upon the new spot, they drop a PAZ and pitch their tents. Campers enjoy a week-long vacation relaxing by the campfire, roasting s’mores, singing songs and making new friends. At the end of the week it’s off to the next camping location!

Earn camp badges for every week that you set up camp. Everyone who drops a PAZ and sets up camp is eligible for a weekly prize. The weekly winner will also receive a Big Foot prop. Ready to go camping and pitch a tent? Purchase a PAZ from Shop Central, you’ll need to drop it at the weekly campsite in order to set up camp. Once you’ve found a sweet spot to set up camp, you’ll need to stock up on some camping supplies.

The Hunt For Bigfoot in There Continues…

Bigfoot has been causing quite the stir during Camp-A-Palooza events in There! There have been several sightings at Camp Nada, Camp Lake Aurora and now Camp Pineapple Forest. With all of the campers encroaching on his natural habitat, Bigfoot has been making some bold moves showing his face in high traffic areas. Trivia guests were startled when he was spotted running through Tiki Talk Tuesday a few days ago.

Thereians have been tracking the elusive beast and documenting sightings of the hairy creature on Facebook. It’s been a challenge for campers to catch photos of him close up. Most often his name tag is seen off in the distance or quick pics have been snapped of him running away with his back to the camera.

At this point Thereians are unsure of what he has been feasting on to keep up his energy reserves eluding groups of curious campers and packs of trail sniffing dogs. There was a murmur through the crowds of campers that Clucky has been missing for several days. It is feared There’s beloved mascot may have turned into Bigfoot’s dinner. No word yet on whether chicken bones were present in the latest discovery of Bigfoot’s scat.
