MMA Cadets Celebrate Halloween

On Saturday, Oct. 30, each Missouri Military Academy (MMA) company designed and organized a Halloween activity for the cadets to enjoy.

Bravo Company staged a scavenger hunt around campus, where teams searched for clues and code words. Charlie Company hosted a competition in the gym that included a pie-eating contest, costume dodgeball, relay races, apple bobbing, and pumpkin carving and painting. Delta Company designed a haunted trail behind the field house, which saw groups of 20 that rode on a tractor-pulled wagon while the company hid behind the trees and jumped out to scare them.

Later that night, the cadets ate a traditional cookout meal with hot dogs, pulled pork, apple cider, hot cocoa and handfuls of candy.

On Halloween, 41 cadets visited the Missouri State Penitentiary for a two-hour ghost tour. This guided tour led them through one of the most haunted places in Missouri, featuring stories about inmates who were held there.

Back at MMA, there was a bonfire at which the cadets enjoyed s'mores and games and told ghost stories around the fire.
