REVIEW: "The scavenger hunt was great!  Our group did it yesterday and they had a blast! Since this was a group of college girls, they started off being "put out" at the thought of doing a scavenger hunt.  But when they came back they were laughing with each other, having so much fun and ended up being very competitive! Being able to customize the hunt by simply editing the Word Document was priceless. Thank you!" Julie McGehee, University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK [more reviews for our scavenger hunt games]

HOW IT WORKS: This is an outdoor walking or driving scavenger hunt suitable for any area with shops and businesses (including malls).

A note about doing this hunt in a mall: Some folks have told us that their local mall considered the scavenger hunt an "event" and it was therefore prohibited; others have told us that picture-taking is not allowed. To be on the safe side, PLEASE check with the mall before showing up to do this hunt. Photography in public places article.

Photo scavenger hunt games challengeYou'll need about 2 hours for this hunt. Your group will be divided into teams of three to 10 people. Each team will receive a collection bag (knapsack, duffle bag or carry-all) containing various supplies. They'll then embark on the scavenger hunt, taking pictures and obtaining specific items. 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.

At the conclusion of the hunt, after the teams present a creative and inspiring final presentation, we recommend you have a debriefing session using the team assessment form included with your kit. TEAM OBJECTIVE: Form an efficient, effective and enthusiastic team that communicates well, works by consensus and has a definite plan of action to complete this adventure hunt. The team that does this the best will be your outstanding team of the day. (While points matter, outstanding team work matters more for this version of the game.)

*This scavenger hunt game will work in both large and small communities. You may need to do a bit of editing for very small towns but it's easy to do. Also to customize the hunt, you can easily add additional items to find, pictures and projects to the list using our hunt as a template/guide.

HOW TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR SCAVENGER HUNT GAME: All our scavenger hunt games are formatted in Microsoft Word which means you can EASILY edit them to personalize the scavenger hunt for your event and add in your own custom challenges. If you're going to a place you've never been, search the Internet for the "city name" and the results will provide you with informative web sites you can use to plug in location specific challenges. You'll also find some nice suggestions on our testimonial pages.

EXAMPLES: Scavenger hunt challenges include 18 picture challenges (they'll make GREAT memories of the day) and 20 collection challenges. Our challenges are interesting, engaging and fun, fun, fun!

NOTE: Because no town or city is exactly the same, this hunt is NOT a riddle hunt where one solves a riddle to find the next location in the hunt. We need to keep the challenges as generic as possible so they will work anywhere in the world. We do include with your purchase our FREE 16-page how-to guide to designing a location to location riddle hunt for your city or town.

NUMBER OF TEAMS or PARTICIPANTS: Unlimited number of teams with a minimum of three or four to a maximum of 10 people per team. We do recommend one facilitator/helper for every two to three teams to keep things running smoothly, especially when you grade team efforts and tally up completed challenges.

What if you only have a few people participating in scavenger hunt? Instead of dividing them into teams, you can keep them all on one team and have them race against the clock, giving the single team a time limit to complete each section of the hunt (photos, find items, etc.), report back to you for the next section and so on until the hunt is complete.

AGE RANGE: Age 14* to adult (*based on testimonials and customer feedback. If you have any questions about this hunt being suitable for your children, please contact us.)

LENGTH OF THE HUNT: Two to four hours, depending on the size of your group*: Five minutes for opening instructions; a minimum of 1 1/2 hours for the scavenger hunt and about 30 minutes or more for the grading, (optional) team presentations and awards presentation. *The more teams you have, the more time it will take. Also if you're driving to various locations instead of just walking, you'll need to add in time.

Click Here Grapic: How The Team Building Hunts Length For the team building versions of the hunts, allow two to four+ hours, depending on the size of your group: 15-20 minutes for opening instructions, warm up game and team organization; 1 1/2 - two hours for the hunt and about 30 minutes (or more) for grading, team presentations, awards and optional but recommended team assessment discussion.

PRE-HUNT PREP TIME: For up to six teams, you can put our scavenger hunts together in about four to six hours (includes shopping for supplies, reading the scavenger hunt and prepping the materials); as you add teams, you'll need to add time to the pre-hunt prep. You mostly need to print (and perhaps edit) the documents included with the kit, pack the collection bags and you'll need to get team prizes and other inexpensive supplies like clipboards and pens. Our facilitator guide provides a supply checklist for you. *You will need these software programs.
