Scavenger Hunt Team Challenge

Welcome to a fun and rewarding program which will provide every one with fresh air, exercise and the challenge to work together as a team, finding your way to gather information for a common goal .

Your group will be divided into two teams. One member from each team will be positioned at designated sites. A sealed envelope will be given to each team member at the start. In the envelope there will be a map with clues to help find the first marker. A marker is a landmark which may be a natural one, (tree, sign, building ) or a flag which will have the sealed envelopes with maps and clues with each teams name on it. Which will be delivered to the second team member. The second team will have to find two markers using the help of their first team member. After the second team finds the markers and delivers them to the third team member the first, second and third team members will proceed to find three markers which will lead to the fourth team member. The team as a group will go on to find markers leading to the 5th team member. As the team multiplies, the markers will increase. The final markers will lead to the finish.
