Review: YOU WERE RIGHT!!! I had absolutely nothing to worry about! The party was a huge success. As one child said, “This is the best party ever.” We had twelve boys altogether, 6 on each team. It was really a fun time. It kept those crazy, boys busy for 2 hours!!!!!!!!! A mothers dream! 🙂 🙂 My skeptical husband, who I did let go with one of the teams, LOVED it! He said the boys really had a great time. His words, “Honey, you did a great job, you really did.” THANKS A BUNCH!!! YOU ROCK! All the moms thought I was crazy for even having 12 boys……you proved you can have a large party and not go insane!! LOL Until next party…..”Mollie Brown, Madison, GA  >>>> Read more reviews for all our kids’ games here.

Do-It-Yourself Scavenger Hunts – Summer Fun!

Idea for Summer Fun: Do-It-Yourself Scavenger Hunts by Haley Productions. 

Here’s a creative, time saving summer fun idea: our downloadable scavenger hunts.  They are fast and easy to plan and put together.

We have a nice selection of complete outdoor scavenger hunts to choose from, all of which are ready to download as is or can easily be customized – something Julie McGehee of Norman, Oklahoma truly appreciated.

“Being able to customize the hunt by simply editing the Word document was priceless. Thank you!”

Dawn Campbell of Bear, Delaware decided to use one of Haley Productions’ hunts as an icebreaker for her bridal party – none of whom knew each other very well. Here’s what she had to say about our Operation: Our Town Scavenger Hunt:

“The hunt was great and I would do it again in a minute. I think the packaging, payment process, rules, collection items, etc. were just great.  I know that we will be talking about this for years to come.  Thanks for taking all the planning out of the equation and providing everything in a neat package.  YAHOO

Just one more (of many) reviews for our scavenger hunt games:

“Everyone really enjoyed your Operation When Nature Calls scavenger hunt. The instructions and scoring were really easy to figure out, even for the kids. It was a good family activity and sharing activity for groups that didn’t know each other as well. Let me say, it’s not that I didn’t have confidence in the program, but I am a professional trainer and won’t ever present an activity without piloting it with a group first, especially if I have to explain it to the group. Helps me to answer questions. This is one of the most thoroughly thought out activities that I have ever seen. Thank you.” – Cyndi Avery, Newton, IA

TESTIMONIALS:

We just had our annual Aunts/Cousins weekend and I wanted to tell you that my family had a great time with Operation Our Town Scavenger Hunt. I have to say thank you, thank you, thank you. I’ve received nothing but praise from family and we have some awesome photo keepsakes from our weekend. We change each year on who is responsible for the fun and games and the group taking it on for next year and worried they cannot stand up to this one. I gave them your website to check out for ideas. – Christy Frederick, Saranac MI

THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOO MUCH FOR YOUR SCAVENGER HUNT MATERIALS! My boss and all the hunt participants were THRILLED with the entire thing – start to finish! We had the best time! I am still receiving praising e-mails and thank you cards from everyone a week later! I am so lucky to have played a part in bringing them a fresh, unique way of interacting with each other! I have and will recommend this to everyone I know! Thanks again, Aubrey Jones, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan

REVIEW: “This looks like it may become an annual tradition. You make your hunts very easy to follow. I ordered your When Nature Calls hunt last year for our annual family reunion and did it as a “filler activity” at our camp. I have to tell you that EVERYONE loved it so much (even the “nay-sayers”) that we are doing [another scavenger hunt] (Operation Recovery) as our main event at this year’s reunion. We are all very excited and can’t wait. Everyone that participated last year from ages 8 to 72, had just as much fun. It’s amazing how competitive everyone becomes during the hunt. The performance and song put on by everyone after the hunt was the funniest thing our family has ever done together. What a ball! Thanks!” Pete Rapps, Everglades City, FL

REVIEW: “Our nature scavenger hunt was A COMPLETE SUCCESS! I am the Activities Director for a 271 site Campground in South Central Pennsylvania.  I thought perhaps I would have about 5 teams….ended up with 25! (Luckily I was prepared for 30)! Anyway, people are still absolutely raving about what a blast they had and they can’t wait for next years’!  Your package was superb!  Kudos! Thanks Again!” –Heather Mull, Manheim, PA

We have lots more great reviews for our scavenger hunts here.

HOW IT WORKS: This is an outdoor nature scavenger hunt game suitable for a medium to large park or recreation area (it was originally designed for a state park). It can be adapted to a campground.

You’ll need about 2 hours minimum for this hunt (unless you remove some challenges). Your group will be divided into teams of 3 to 10 people. Each team will receive a collection bag (knapsack, duffle bag or even a plastic shopping bag will do) containing a digital camera (or smart phone), their challenge sheet – the hunt itself – and various supplies. They will then embark on the scavenger hunt, taking pictures, obtaining specific items and completing a creative project. All the challenges are worth valuable points and there are some bonus point challenges as well. At the conclusion of the hunt, the teams will prepare an optional final presentation while you “grade” their challenge sheets to find the winners based on point total (award certificates are included with this hunt). THE WINNING TEAM will have had the most fun as a team while collecting the most points.

Instant download!  No waiting, no shipping and handling fees.

Corporate team building version available too!
