Governors Island Scavenger Hunt

Governors Island Scavenger Hunt


Your best team ever.

Take the scavenger hunt to the extreme and outdoors. Unsual challenges for clues to collect and team photos will exercise your brain and your funny bone. Tasks may involve creating art from sticks and rocks, finding strange uses for food, writing new lyrics for old songs and navigating to secret locations. 

The hunt challenges you to find and create fun items, to pose for team photos and to find our guides for a surprise challenge.

Participants use their own smartphone cameras and send the photos to our judges. We’ll collect the photos and send them all to you after the hunt. They’ll be great souvenirs of your adventure, and you’ll get to share in each team’s adventures.
