Are you a fan of ghosts? Interested in the paranormal? Surprise, we are too.
If you are looking to interact with something otherworldly this October, join us on October 22nd for a ghost hunt at Chapman!
The event will be virtual - kind of like watching a live episode of the Ghost Whisperer or Ghost Adventures but better, because we are exploring our own turf! We will work side-by-side with the Advanced Paranormal Services, a group of ghost hunting professionals, to see what might be haunting the halls of Chapman. The building is 103 years old and seems to have collected ghostly visitors over the years. Staff have reported seeing a woman and a few children, puppets moving of their own accord and an apparition of a woman in a column of light. Don’t believe us? Well, many years ago, staff decorated a Christmas tree in the building only to find that - the next morning - all the decorations had been removed from the tree and placed in a neat circle around it. No one had entered the building during the course of the night. Still don’t believe us? Tune in to see if we find any!
We will be raffling off several dowsing rods, digital EMF readers and an analog EMF meter. Any teen who shows up for the virtual hunt will be entered into the raffle - they do not need to have completed the City-wide Scavenger Haunt. The Advanced Paranormal Services will offer up a presentation on ghost hunting techniques that would pair very well with any hardwon ghost hunting tools!
