we specialize in treasure hunts and live adventures, we do offer
resources for those that are more interested in planning a scavenger
hunt. What's the difference you ask? They can be defined in their
simplest forms as follows: A treasure hunt involves going to several
different locations in a fixed order until the participant reaches
a final destination. A live adventure is a more complex treasure
hunt where the order of locations isn't as defined and there are
typically activities or tasks to complete at each location. A scavenger
hunt involves beginning with a list of items that must be collected
within a specific amount of time - the more items found within that
time period the better one has done.
Scavenger Hunt Lists
scavenger hunt list is very simple to create - all it takes is listing
some random items on a piece of paper and you're ready to go. Sometimes,
though, you'll want something more. We've designed several different
collections of scavenger hunt lists that can be easily downloaded
and used, each with a different theme for added fun. Each themed
collection contains three lists (with the exception of the Roaring
20's theme which contains more) with varying degrees of difficulty.
They range from the simple (a list of items to find within that
theme) to the very complex involving finding clues to puzzles and
solving them, etc. Sometimes we have the time to get creative and
design our list ourselves...and sometimes we don't. When you find
yourself in the latter situation, you'll find our lists very helpful!
currently have over 20 themes to choose from including:
1960's, 1970's, 1980's, Aladdin, Alice in Wonderland, American Independence,
Ancient Greece, Baseball, Basketball, Bugs, Candy, Cats, Chinese,
Cinderella, Thanksgiving, Graduation, Roaring 20's, Mexican Fiesta,
US Civil War and more!

Planning A Scavenger Hunt
format of a scavenger hunt involves beginning with a list of items
and the need to find as many as one can within a certain amount
of time. There are many variations on this concept, but we'll begin
with this definition. Whether or not a scavenger hunt is successful
depends largely on the list itself. The more creative the list,
the more fun (in general) your participants will have. How does
one get creative with a scavenger hunt? Glad you asked
are some ideas for consider when building your scavenger hunt list:
1. Apply different point values to different items. The more difficult
the item to obtain, the more points it's worth. In this way you'll
reward ingenuity while also providing opportunities every team to
get at least SOME points.
