Community Scavenger Hunt

Holding a scavenger hunt is a great way to have lots of fun with your friends, family and neighbours.

  1. Prepare a list of items that each team must find or use the list on the next page.
  2. Give each team the list of items that they must find.
  3. Give each team a bag to hold their collected items.
  4. As a group, decide and set the rules. For example,
  5. You may wish to add different items to the list. You might include that teams must get the signature of a particular person in town… the mayor, the chief, a teacher. (Be sure to have their permission first!)
  6. The first team to come back with all of the items wins.
  7. You may wish to assign point values to each of the items. Items that are more difficult to find get a higher point value. The team with highest number of points would be the winner.
  8. Finish the day with a barbeque and award the prizes!
