Town Scavenger Hunt Game

REVIEW: “Susan, Operation Our Town scavenger hunt was a HUGE success at my family reunion!! We ALL – everyone – had a great time. The interaction was exactly what was needed. You learn a lot about people through such activities. I can’t wait to try another one of your hunts. By the way I liked to read what others thought about the product before buying and I love that you communicate with your audience – it adds such a personal touch! Wonderful!” – Andrea Johnson


HOW IT WORKS: This is an outdoor walking or driving scavenger hunt suitable for any area with shops and businesses (including malls). *This scavenger hunt will work in both large and small communities. They will embark on a super fun scavenger hunt, taking pictures, obtaining specific items and completing a creative project.

Scavenger hunts for the workplace

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 you can use one smart phone per team), 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.

REVIEW: “Absolutely Amazing!!!! There is no other way to describe our team scavenger hunt activity. It exceeded every expectation I could have had. The picture portion brought me to tears when doing the scoring, I couldn’t believe the things our teams came up with. I knew it would be fun, but I had no idea how much. This was truly a ‘team” building exercise, watching the men (who are only usually interested in a golf outing), roar with excitement when their teams photo or unusual item was chosen and displayed for all to see. We had a dinner that evening to present awards and the winners, this is a must in bringing things to an end. We had a projector and showed the highlights of the day on screen. The room was “electric”!!!!!!!! Thank you so much the all the tools to make this day a huge success. The only problem I have is what to do for next year, the bar has been set so high, I don’t think anything could top this.” Fondly, Desiree Clisura, Princeton, NJ

HOW IT WORKS:

Teens, ‘Text Neck’ & Scavenger Hunts

I read with great interest this article in the Chicago Tribune, Teens showing signs of ‘text neck’.

It says, in part:

Think your kid’s posture is starting to suffer from always looking down at a cellphone?

It is, according to a national chain of physical therapy clinics, which reports that more teens than ever are complaining of “text neck,” or back and neck pain that can only be explained by the strain on the body caused by constant viewing of hand-held technology.

“We have teens experiencing the same shoulder, neck and back pain usually felt by people 30 years older,” said Megan Randich, a physical therapist and facility manager for Athletico in Westchester. “They shouldn’t be experiencing those issues.”

[…]

Randich added that another way for teens to combat text neck: Get outside and be active.

“Before this generation, there was so much more outdoor free play,” she said. “Activities used to counter any poor posture or positioning. They’re no longer doing that.”

Made me think of our scavenger hunts as a perfect solution to text neck.

Our tag line appropriately enough is, “Get Out and Play!”  Hmmmm, I like this solution.  Don’t you?

We love this testimonial for our scavenger hunts and think you will too:

Susan, what a GREAT experience. I have long been a fan of scavenger hunts (since my teenager years) but haven’t done one in so long. Our son’s 16th birthday was on New Year’s Eve and he wanted a party. These days it is so hard to entertain teenagers — and to keep them out of trouble at the same time. Also, with so much hoopla around birthday parties it’s hard to come up with something original that doesn’t involve hiring someone or renting out a party facility. Your product saved my life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had planned to do a scavenger hunt but waited until 3 days before his party to pull it all together. So just 48 hours before 16 sixteen year olds were to show up at my house, I was in a panic. Until, of course, I found you on the Internet. Your Our Town hunt was perfect. It was easy to modify, thorough in every aspect, and was the only reason our son’s 16th birthday party was a success. The kids loved it — and declared that we should have an annual scavenger hunt for Mack’s birthday. Thank you so much == and kudos to you for offering such a creative service, a quality product, and great service. Best wishes in your business. I’m spreading the word all over Atlanta! And I’ll stand by my word: I got more than my money’s worth! Karen Sherman, Atlanta, GA.  Read more teen scavenger hunt reviews here.
