The weather is finally getting warmer so you know what that means...Time to get outside!
April's family engagement activity is SCAVENGER HUNTS!
A scavenger hunt is a game of finding objects on a list. This activity can be timed like a race, or not. It can be shared with friends and family at home and away. The most important thing about a scavenger hunt is that it should result in a fun adventure for all those involved.
** We would love to hear about your scavenger hunt adventures. You can send pictures to email@example.com or tag us on any social media posts that you make.

Have you ever tried Geocaching?
Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunt game using GPS enabled devices. If you have a maps app on your smartphone then you are ready to go. You navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.
More information and local coordinates can be found at www.geocaching.com
