Teen builds haunted house to scare money for charity

California teenager to donate money raised at the haunted house at the American Cancer Society, in honor of his grandmother.

A Californian teenager is keeping up his tradition of hosting a haunted house with his friends — but this year he has wanted to do for a good cause.

Cameron Britt, 15, of the Tierrasanta area of San Diego, said he and his friends have transformed his family home into a haunted house for the past three years, FOX5 reported. Britt said he came up with the idea as a way to tackle another hobby.

“I honestly don’t know what’s going on in my head,” he told FOX5. “I just decided that I need another hobby on top of my other hobbies.”

This year, Britt and his friends decided on the theme of “Psycho Motel.” Britt said it was inspired by a number of horror movies.

“It’s kind of a mish-mash of horrors,” he said. “With all of the different movies to mix to make as a psycho killer clown.”

Britt took this year was tough for his family after his grandmother died five months ago-sarcoma, a rare form of cancer that affects the bones and soft tissue, according to the American Cancer Society.

“It’s been difficult for my family, because my grandmother died of cancer, so we’re going to start doing love nights,” said Britt. “I found it really difficult. She was always there for me.”

Britt told FOX5 that this Saturday is the house open for free to the public, and donations are welcome. All the money will be given to the American Cancer Society.

“She is a great supporter of everything I do, so this is for you, grandma,” said Britt.
