CITY WIDE SCAVENGER HUNT

Photo scavenger hunt games challengeHOW IT WORKS: This hunt can be done over the course of a full day or it can be broken down into several days. It's your choice. There is no right way or wrong way. You make this hunt fit your requirements and the time you have. It's formatted in Microsoft Word so it's fully editable.

We've designed the hunt around four San Francisco neighborhoods (Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square, The Embarcadero and North Beach) with 10 photo challenges in each neighborhood. In addition there are 20 items to find, a 20-question San Francisco trivia quiz, five 'catch as catch can' photo challenges that can be taken pretty much anywhere and 12 super bonus point photo challenges at various places throughout the city.

The teams will need to use public transportation or vehicles to complete this hunt. If they'll be using public transportation, please add in some petty cash for them to pay for their tickets (http://www.bart.org will provide you with the costs of getting around.)

AGE RANGE: Age 16 to adult. May possibly be used with younger teens but a few challenges may need to be edited. Contact us if you have questions.

NUMBER OF TEAMS: The number of team members per team should be geared to how they're getting around. Five people to a car = one team for example; you can have up to 10 people per team if they're using public transportation. We recommend a minimum of three and no more than 10 members per team.

You can have teams as many as you think you can handle. Even a single team will work - just do it for the fun of it or perhaps compete against the clock by giving the team a certain amount of time to complete as many challenges as possible.

If you want to be part of a team, go ahead! Yes, you may have some inside knowledge of the challenges but you can make a rule that you can't use that inside knowledge to help your team in any way.

THE WINNING TEAM will have had the most fun as a team while collecting the most points. You'll have two options with regard to tallying up points for each team. You can either enlist good support - this is especially true the more teams you have - to help you grade team efforts or the teams can grade each other's efforts with you as the mediator when and if necessary. We provide tally sheets so you can keep track of team scores.

EXAMPLES: We provide lots of different types of challenges to complete to keep it interesting, engaging and fun, fun, fun!

  1. Take a picture of your entire team looking wicked and sexy or wickedly sexy or just wicked on what was once known as "the wickedest street on earth". Where are you and why did the street have such a reputation?
  2. Take a picture of the team member who was born the furthest away from San Francisco with Dimitri Hadzi's Creazione sculpture. This team member must be in a similar pose to that of the statue - as best as he or she can interpret it.
  3. Set up a wedding scene photograph at the place where Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio posed for family photographs on their wedding day (January 14th, 1954). This is a very specific place. You can see it from Washington Square Park
  4. Collect a cocktail napkin from the place where Irish coffee made its debut in San Francisco.

UNION SQUARE HUNT

HOW IT WORKS: This is a walking scavenger hunt for Union Square and Yerba Buena Gardens.

You'll need about two hours minimum for this hunt. Your group will be divided into teams of up to 10 people. Each team will receive a collection bag (knapsack, duffle bag or carryall of some sort) containing various supplies. They will then embark on the scavenger hunt, taking pictures, obtaining specific items, completing a creative project and a San Francisco trivia quiz. 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.


Click Here Grapic: How The Team Building Hunts LengthFor the TEAM BUILDING VERSION of this scavenger hunt, there will be an added mid-hunt meet where additional challenges (included) will be given out and team members my move to other teams or team roles will change. 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.)

  Reviews

This is the second year in a row that we have used your hunts for our students who are members of the Public Service Academy at Clayton Valley High School. Last year we used the Embarcadero and Union Square Hunts and this year we went to North Beach and Fisherman's Wharf. The students had a fabulous time. Thanks for making this easy for me. Field trips are really a pain with so many details to work out. Your hunts made it possible to have a really "cool" activity for just a little money which allowed everyone to come. - Margaret Ljepava, Concord, CA

I just wanted to follow up and let you know the Union Square scavenger hunt was a big success - you have a fantastic product! It was very easy to order and download, and all the instructions were very clear and easy to follow.  I've planned group activities for this team for several years, and we've done everything from white water rafting in Costa Rica to cooking classes in Cabo, and I think the scavenger hunt was by far the most popular, end easiest to coordinate, so thanks again for a great service! -Deirdre Cook, Negociants USA, Napa, CA
