Digital Camera Scavenger Hunt
Every year we do a digital camera scavenger hunt with our youth. I am always trying to find new ideas but often have a hard time finding a good list. So I thought I would post some of our list over the years and tell you some twist we insert to make it more challenging. Any of your ideas would be appreciated.

Give them a list of people who will not be at the event they need to get pictures with doing one of the item on the list. We like to include our volunteer youth leaders, elders, teachers, a few senior members, etc.

You have to have a way to determine a winner. We give a free ice cream at Baskin Robbins as a prize. The way we determine point values is (1) what would be a hard picture to get, (2) what would be a great picture. The harder and the better the more points. The easier and the less spectacular the picture the less points. Don’t be stingy with points. Don’t do 10 points as a high go crazy and make it 5,000 points. They don’t cost anything so give freely. Add bonus points for the twist.
Add a comment to tell us what you have done or think would be cool.
