Polaroid Scavenger Hunt
Compiled by Center for Creative Ministry/ Sean Buvala
Disclaimer Stuff: First off, Polaroid is a registered trademark of that
Palaroid Company. But, we are not making any money off this and we do suggest
you need to use their cameras to make this work.
Second, this Scavenger Hunt idea has been around for long time, probably
in some form or the other by Youth Specialties or one of the giant Youth
Ministry publishers. So, go buy
their books, like PLAY IT or something. :-)
Third, do any game at your own risk. It is the silly youth director
that lets teenagers drive teenagers around for this game or for any event
where automobiles are used. As a general note, your drivers should always
be over 21. Be sure that they have provided you with a their Driver's License
and insurance proof . Make photo-copies of all of these documents and keep
them in your records. We also assume that you have talked to your group
about manners, public behavior and so on and so forth.
Okay, on with the show.
What You Need for each 'hunting' group:
1. Aforementioned adult driver. Driver also doubles as the picture taker.....
2. Polaroid camera with film and flash....
3. $1 per group....(See the second item on list)
3. The LIST for each group.....
How to Do It:
You follow the traditional rules of a scavenger hunt. The adult driver
takes a picture of their group doing each of the following. Activities
can be done in any order. Each car group must be back at whatever time
you set with as many pictures of the completed activities as they can get!
Here's the List, Add or subtract as fits your group. Be creative and
think of your own picture opportunities!
***Get a picture of all of your group members doing the following:

use of the $1. Give the food collected to your church's food bank.)
