Adventure Guides Hosts Photo Scavenger Hunt

Did you see the banana running down the street? What about people crammed in a bus shelter while all drinking from the same cup? Or someone dressed for the beach while there is still snow on the ground? If so, you may have been witness to the first Lake Trail Nation Photo Scavenger Hunt. Teams were charged with taking ten photos in and around Lakewood while incorporating props like a garden gnome, pajamas, and even total strangers to earn bonus points.

On Saturday, March 10, members of the Lakewood Y’s Adventure Guides gathered to review the list of silly locations and actions – dabbing, anyone? – and then set about the city to capture their team in photos. In the evening, everyone reconvened to view the photos and choose a winning team. But in the end, the whole event was just plain old silly fun, with a firm reinforcement of the Adventure Guides belief that “the best thing you can spend on your child is your time.”

Lake Trail Nation Adventure Guides is open to all children ages five to twelve (and beyond) and their parents, grandparent, guardian, or other care giver. We engage in large activities like tent and cabin campouts, seasonal parties, and Pinewood Derby, but also smaller Circle events based on children’s age and gender. It’s all about getting the most out of these precious years when our kids are growing up, but still want to have fun with their adults!
