Scavenger Hunt Defined: A scavenger hunt is a game in which the organizers prepare a list defining specific items, using which the participants — individuals or teams — seek to gather all items on the list — usually without purchasing them — or perform tasks or take photographs of the items, as specified. The goal is usually to be the first to complete the list, although in a variation on the game players can also be challenged to complete the tasks on the list in the most creative manner.
Notable scavenger hunts include the University of Chicago Scavenger Hunt, the annual Tricadecathlonomania, a 24-hour worldwide event that began in Northfield, MN, and the Monroe NY annual scavenger hunt. Some scavenger hunts are held online, where players have to find particular information on the web. Scavenger hunts can easily be played either outdoors (around town, parks, back yards, etc.) or indoors (malls, houses, shops, etc.) and they're a great way to teach kids about nature .
Online Treasure Hunts are another form of scavenger hunts where participants follow clues and visit different websites (or even physical locations) to solve riddles. Participants can win prizes such as cash for being the first to correctly solve the puzzles and win the treasure hunt.
