What if you couldn’t hide from that which haunts you?

We asked seven youth about the ghosts in their lives.

Tradition. Abuse. Loneliness. Illness.

Powerlessness. Depression. Death.

Their stories will captivate… and haunt you.

Their hope will move you.



Haunted House hit the road in 2015 with workshops that featured our youth leaders bringing elements of the work to their peers in Kelowna, Prince George, Surrey, Abbotsford and Vancouver.
