REVIEW: "I, I mean the kids had the time of their lives!!!!!!! I want you to know that I am by far declared the coolest mom ever!!!!! All of the kids said that this was the best slumber/any party that they had ever gone to. I think this party will be talked about for years. In addition to that I have you to thank for all of it. P.S. Whatever will I do next year? - Chundra Dotson, Cordova, TN. READ MORE REVIEWS
OVERVIEW: This classic scavenger hunt game is designed for kids aged 7 to 13. It's a great addition to any party (birthday, Halloween, etc.) It has enough interesting activities (missions for the kids to accomplish) and options to fit anyone's budget and time frame. It will work in any house but it's best to have access to a yard and a neighborhood if possible just to expand the playing area so the kids don't get in each other's way.
The kids will be divided into teams. Each team will receive a collection bag containing a digital camera or smart phone, their challenge sheet - the hunt itself - and various supplies. The kids will then embark on the scavenger hunt, taking pictures, obtaining specific items and completing various projects - all worth valuable points. To customize the scavenger hunt, you can easily add additional items, pictures and projects to the list.
Scavenger hunt challenges are broken down into 3 categories: pictures (10), projects (2-3)and item collection (about 11). The full scavenger hunt will have detailed instructions & some alternative challenges to consider if you don’t like or can’t use the challenges as designed. For example, if you can't send the kids to your neighbor's house we give you an alternative challenge; we also provide "snow alternatives" for those folks that have snowy winters.
Photo example: Solve this riddle and then take a picture of your most dramatic team member doing something dramatic at the location. Riddle: They go up and down but they never move.
- Solve this riddle and collect the item: What is something that runs but never walks?
- Collect some dog food kibble/nuggets.
Project Example:Go to the freezer and take out something that definitely doesn’t belong there. Follow the instructions.
THE WINNING TEAM: We don't recommend a "winning" team. We recommend you award each team a special prize for their efforts: best photos, best projects, most creative, most team spirit - whatever "award category" you come up with to recognize their efforts as you observe them. It's important that there are no "losers". Our kit includes Award Certificates.
REVIEW: "Thank you for saving the night! When I came up with the idea to have a scavenger hunt, I knew it would take hours to plan a successful hunt. I went on-line and within minutes, I had your Operation Kovert Kids Hunt in my hand. It was a beautiful thing! The hunt was a total success. I don't know who had more fun, the girls or myself. We had 12 teenagers for a slumber party. I noticed the age on the hunt said up to 12 years old. The girls I had were 12 and 13. I think they were at the perfect age, not too young to understand and follow the directions, and not too old to think it was boring. You know how teenagers can be. When the girls left the next day, several of them told my daughter and myself that it was the best party they had ever been to. My daughter was very excited about the whole night." - Patricia Gringeri, West Palm Beach, FL. READ MORE TESTIMONIALS

PRE-HUNT PREP TIME: For up to 6 teams, you can put our scavenger hunts together in about 2 to 6 hours ; as you add teams, it may take you a bit longer to prep. You mostly need to print the documents included with the kit, pack the collection bags and you'll need to shop for team prizes, digital cameras as well as other inexpensive supplies like clipboards, project items and such. Our organizer guide provides a supply checklist for you.
