Private Group Scavenger Hunts


Fun Games for All Groups and Occasions

Looking for a new way to bring a group together and share an adventure? Watson Adventures scavenger hunts take you on a whirlwind tour of your favorite locations. You won’t be collecting objects (drop that pigeon!), you’ll be collecting answers to tricky and humorous questions about the amazing places and unusual objects you discover. A hunt is like a walking tour spiked with caffeine! No previous knowledge is required-you just need a sharp mind and comfy shoes.

Who goes on the hunts? Who doesn’t! We’ve staged hunts for people ages 7 to 70, for all sorts of occasions—social group outings, birthday parties, family reunions, bachelorette parties, charity fundraisers, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, summer camp outings, sweet 16 parties, you name it.

Our Scavenger Hunts for Kids get kids and adults working together and having fun in surprising and delightful ways, including on school and youth group field trips and summer camp outings. Teachers and other educators in particular have raved about the benefits of taking students on our School Field Trip Scavenger Hunts.

We provide a staff to run the event, hand out and explain the materials, interact with the hunters during the game, and at the end score and announce the results. For a bit more, we can also bring digital cameras for Team Photo Challenges, and we can also customize the hunt for the occasion.

The Colonial Williamsburg Calamities Scavenger Hunt


Get into the spirit of 1776!

Can you imagine a more fascinating and charming place for a scavenger hunt than Colonial Williamsburg? The town dovetails with the outdoor museum, a re-creation of what Williamsburg looked like during the Revolutionary War. You’ll tackle our usual array of tricky, entertaining questions and challenges while uncovering the secrets of the palatial homes, quaint stores, government buildings steeped in history, delightful gardens, a bit of the College of William & Mary, and much more. Along the way, you’ll need to get creative for Team Photo Challenges–perhaps you’ll recruit a historical re-enactor dressed as a founding father (or mother).

Much of Williamsburg is open to the public without charge. If your group already has paid admission to Colonial Williamsburg we can include questions inside some of the old-time shops on Duke of Gloucester Street. (Most of the buildings can only be seen on a guided tour, so we can’t include them on the hunt.) The hunt is available in 90-minute and two-hour versions.

Also available at Colonial Williamsburg: The Fast and Furious Folk Art Scavenger Hunt, all-indoor hunt inside the thoroughly surprising Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum and the DeWitt Wallace
Decorative Arts Museum–two museums in one.
