About Us

Markoff's Haunted Forest


For the past 25 years, we have reinvented ourselves each year to create a new and terrifying experience. There is so much going on that you’re sure to soil yourself!  Markoffs Haunted Forest is Maryland’s original greatest Halloween event, and you will be amazed by our haunts, our extreme events, and huge bonfires!




In 1993, the Markoffs started the Haunted Forest in order to raise money to start a summer camp (In 1992 it was a Haunted Bus). Calleva is now a year-round outdoor school committed to teaching and building strong leaders through positive outdoor experiences. Thanks to the many great staff, friends, and family that have made our dream a reality.

Calleva is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

The Markoffs Haunted Forest is a Benefit Performance.

For a Cause


In addition to raising funds for Calleva which supports scholarships, program development, and infrastructure needs; every year we select a couple of local organizations and groups that make a difference to our greater community. This year we will be donating a portion of proceeds to the following:
