What is a neighborhood scavenger hunt?
A neighborhood scavenger hunt turns the familiar streets and landmarks of your community into a game board.

It's a blend of exploration, puzzle-solving, and friendly competition that can be tailored for adults, kids, or mixed-age groups.
Hosting a neighborhood scavenger hunt
Collaborate with neighbors
- Brainstorming session: Organize a planning meeting with interested neighbors. This collaborative approach can yield creative ideas and distribute the workload.
- Diverse perspectives: Involve parents, teens, and other community members to ensure the hunt is enjoyable for all age groups and considers different interests and abilities.
- Hidden gems: Tap into your neighbors' knowledge of the area to include unique and lesser-known spots in your scavenger hunt.
Plan in detail
- Scouting and documentation: Take time to explore and photograph potential locations and items for the scavenger hunt.
- Safety assessment: Ensure each spot is safe and accessible for all participants, keeping in mind the age and mobility of players.
- List creation: Develop a comprehensive list of items and challenges, and consider creating a map or guide for participants.
Tailor to your audience

Find the perfect spots
