When we say we can sculpt a scavenger hunt for any group and just about any occasion, we aren’t blowing smoke up your tuches.
We’re the bubbe-approved pioneers of interactive adventures, and an array of Jewish groups have turned to Watson Adventures for our special brand of exciting, witty fun.
We’ve worked with:
- Temple Youth Groups
- Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs
- Jewish Community Centers
- Congregational Outings
- Heritage Tours
- Jewish Studies Groups
Our happy hunters have uncovered Jewish heritage on the Lower East Side, noshed through Jewish foodie tours on the Upper West Side, and explored the Jewish Museum. And don’t forget our ultra-customizable Grab ’n’ Go hunts and Trivia Slam games.
Maven-Admired, Schmendrick-Friendly Fun
From geniuses to, uh, average citizens, everyone gets in on the action and has a great time! Take a quick glimpse at some of the challenges you’ll face on our Jewish themed hunts.
Secrets of the Lower East Side Scavenger Hunt:
Q: Across from Seward Park is the home of the Educational Alliance, the first Jewish settlement house in the U.S. (When Yiddish author Sholom Aleichem shared a stage here with Mark Twain, Aleichem introduced himself as “the Jewish Mark Twain,” prompting Twain to introduce himself as “the American Sholom Aleichem.”) In the park, the city’s first playground, act like Godzilla and walk all over the neighborhood. Near Delancey Street here, what do the locals do in many languages?
A: Wail (or wailing), part of a quote in a mosaic map in the pavement
Jewish Trivia Slam:
Q: In 1938 Jewish mathematician Edward Kasner asked his nephew Milton to come up with a word for the number 1 followed by 100 zeroes. Today, a large American company boasts a name that was inspired by that boy’s word. What is the company?
For a bonus point, what was the original word?
A: : Google and googol
