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.
Don’t see your favorite location on our site? Check out the Grab ‘n’ Go Scavenger Hunt, which can be staged virtually anywhere!
