Foraging for CT Food and Farms Scavenger Hunt with Connecticut Farmland Trust
July 21, 2022 - August 14, 2022
Connect with other families or register on your own for access to over 30 missions that will prompt you on farming-related experiences to learn, explore, and create in our state from July 21st through August 14th, 2022. We’ve designed and tested the “missions” of this Scavenger Hunt to be especially appealing and educational for families with young children (5-12 years old).
In addition to being fun and educational regarding CT farms, it is designed to be COVID safe too! We anticipate 200 people taking part this summer, but YOU have control over how many people you interact with because the “missions” and submissions are shared on the free virtual platform, GooseChase. All this and only $25/team! The low inaugural price is thanks to our sponsors, listed below, big thanks go to these businesses which support connecting more CT residents to farms!
More information about the Scavenger Hunt below, or please email Kimball Cartwright at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about registration or how to play.
The cost to register is $25 dollars per team and one person must register for the team with their email, to be our contact person. There is no limit to the number of people on a team, and we recommend 4-6 people for maximum fun. Registration will give you access to the game from Thursday, July 21st through Sunday, August 14th. However, you can tackle the missions at your own pace and submit your findings as you please. There are no requirements that need to be completed on specific days.
For the game, at least one team member will need to have:
- Access to the internet
- A mobile device with a camera
- Ability to download the free GooseChase app to their mobile device
All missions were designed to be achievable for elementary school ages. Missions range from being able to be completed independently by kids and others provide an opportunity for involvement of adult guidance, for cooking, transportation, or clarification of a more complex idea. Overall this is an activity that provides fun learning opportunities to engage with your team and to have some valuable discussions about the information that you gather.
All teams will receive a prize for participating in the scavenger hunt. The six top scoring Scavenger Hunt teams also have the opportunity to win exclusive Connecticut Farmland Trust totes, hats, and locally curated cookbooks. The number of top teams will be determined by the CFT Scavenger Hunt judges in the event of a tie.
