Scavenger Hunt for Teens Premise
Participants are given a scavenger hunt for teens map and a scavenger hunt for teens book. They are challenged to solve a series of clues that give either the coordinates of a location on the map, or the actual name of a location on the map. Some of the solutions can be solved by using the hunt book alone. Some of the solutions require additional information provided at a specific clue location. Each clue location is customized by you so this scavenger hunt for teens can be hosted absolutely anywhere. The clues can be solved in any order, so it is up to each team to determine their best course. The final clue will reveal how teams can read the map to find the treasure.

Who the Treasure Hunt Is For

What makes this hunt ideal for teens and adults?
The teen scavenger hunt clues are:
- Clever – Clues are designed with teens and adults in mind. So, it is challenging, but not too hard. It will appeal to the little kid inside all of us, but it is not childish.
- Challenging – This is not a “go to a location and take a picture” type of a hunt. Teams need to work together to solve puzzle type clues. The clues relate to the locations on a special treasure map. At the end of the hunt, teams solve another clue that allows them to use the map to find the treasure.
- Customized – You have control over how the hunt is delivered to the participants. The unique way the puzzles are designed allows you to write in where you want to hide the additional clues. So, you can host this hunt virtually anywhere – at home, at work, outside or indoors. You can also take it a step further and purchase the upgraded package where it is personalized to celebrate your family, hunt location, or guest of honor.

Preparing for Your Hunt
Give yourself plenty of time to plan your hunt. Although we have tried to make this an easy process for you, the very nature of planning a custom hunt in your specific location will take some preparation. Read through your Directions document as soon as possible. This will explain anything that you need to purchase or prepare prior to your hunt. Most hunts will require you to plan out where you want to hide your clues. Some hunts, such as the Pirate Hunt, Teen Treasure Hunt, Haunted Hunt and the Make it Your Own Customizable Hunt require you to purchase/gather items and set up clue stations. These hunts could take up to 4 hours to plan depending on your location and experience in this type of activity.
