REVIEW: "It was a surprise to the group but they had a blast with Operation Recovery! I had some great ideas but your documentation saved me the time of creating documents and gave me help developing my list of items to hunt. I really appreciate the ease of your product and that it was DOWNLOADABLE! With all the documents in Word, it was so easy. Thank you for your help in making today so special." - Virginia Kalil, Lakeland FL
*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. To be on the safe side, check with the mall before showing up to do this hunt.
You'll need about 2 hours minimum for this hunt 3 to 10 people. Each team will receive a collection bag, a collections list consisting of about 80 items and part one of the covert mission called Mission: Cloak and Dagger. The teams will then embark on the scavenger hunt. During the scavenger hunt, they’ll need to meet with undercover operative(s) - usually your facilitator(s)- to receive additional Cloak and Dagger objectives. Their ultimate goal in Mission Cloak and Dagger is to collect pieces of a coded puzzle and decipher it for HUGE bonus points. 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.. Your group will be divided into teams of
For the TEAM BUILDING VERSION of this scavenger hunt, there will be added team meets where team members will move to other teams and additional challenges (included) will be given out. 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.)
Item List – Collection examples from the 80 item list included with the hunt
- Something Irish - can not be an actual person (100 points)
- A toy soldier (100 points)
- Dog or cat food (50 points)
- A bottle cap (50 points)
NUMBER OF TEAMS or PARTICIPANTS: Unlimited number of teams with a minimum of 3 or 4 to a maximum of 10 people per team. We do recommend one facilitator/helper for every 2-3 teams to keep things running smoothly, especially when you grade team efforts and tally up completed challenges.
LENGTH OF THE HUNT: 1 1/2 to 4 hours, depending on the size of your group*: 5 minutes for opening instructions; 1 1/2 - 2 hours for the scavenger hunt and about 1/2 hour 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.
For the TEAM BUILDING versions of the hunts, allow 2 - 4+ hours, depending on the size of your group: 15-20 minutes for opening instructions, warm up game and team organization; 1 1/2 - 2 hours for the hunt and about 1/2 hour (or more) for grading, team presentations, awards and optional but recommended team assessment discussion.
PRE-HUNT PREP TIME: For up to 6 teams, you can put our scavenger hunts together in about 3-4 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 shop for team prizes as well as other inexpensive supplies like clipboards and pens. Our facilitator guide provides a supply checklist for you.
