Operation When Nature Calls - An Adventure/Scavenger Hunt

Susan Haley

Published by Haley Productions

This is an outdoor walking scavenger hunt suitable for a park location or recreation area (it was originally designed for a state park)


AGE RANGE: Kids to adults

LENGTH OF HUNT: 2 - 4 hours, depending on the size of your group - 15 minutes for opening instructions and team organization; 1 3/4 hours for the hunt and up to 2 hours for the (optional) team presentations, awards and grading

HOW IT WORKS: Your group will be divided into teams of up to 10 people. Each team will receive a clue collection bag containing a Polaroid instant camera, film, hunt instructions, their challenge sheet and various supplies. The teams will then embark on the adventure hunt, taking pictures, obtaining specific items and completing various projects - all worth valuable points. To customize the hunt, you can easily add additional items, pictures and projects to the list. At the conclusion of the hunt, the teams will present a creative and inspiring debriefing of their team effort (or you can "grade" their clue sheets to find the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners). Feel free to use these scavenger hunt ideas as templates for your own hunt


Challenges are broken down into 3 categories - pictures, projects and item collection

Take a picture of 2 different species of live animals - one team member must also be in the picture and each picture must feature a different team member

Collect an unusual, clever or creative item

Collect five unique business cards (cannot be your team members' cards)

Write a rap song about your team and be prepared to sing it in your final presentation

Take a picture of 3 of your team members and a drop dead gorgeous stranger in the classic Village People "YMCA" pose in front of a sign identifying where you are.
