    Love a good scav hunt 🙂

    Here are some suggestions I have found of use when creating a list for the hunt.

    Have a central theme.. Might be, “Know your Campsite” or “ Discover our Environment” or “Sports Day”. It could be based on something something topical for your particular location or program aims during a specific time of the year.

    The hunt can be extended beyond just finding things but also completing some tasks as well. Hunt for answers or hunt for solutions to challenges.

    When creating your list of say 25 tasks,
    Create tasks that fall in a varied categories.

    Eg. Creative tasks, such as writing a song or poem and presenting it about your theme

    Collecting Tasks that are based around a theme.. eg at the beach would be shells or feathers, build a sand sculpture

    Location based Tasks, could be figuring out the direction of a certain item from the centre of your campsite or counting the number of doors to the campsite

    Problem solving tasks, Knowledge based Tasks again based around something that is at camp or part of your theme.

    Having that diversity of options in your challenges or your hunt will allow various participants with different strengths to get engaged and to shine.
