Photo treasure hunt scouts

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


find the locations of previously shot images and match them with your own.


Cameras, maps and pre shot photos


Before the event: Walk around your local area and plan a route taking photos at various locations print these out along with the map of the area to hand to scouts on the event evening. I normally print all the images onto A3 sheet with 20 images for each team to find.

On the night:
Scouts can either be issued a camera per team or can be allowed to take their own camera/camera phone.
Each patrol or team follow the route and visit each location and take a photo trying to match the original. Bonus points are awarded for teams making funny poses at the various locations.

Awarded 1point per photo and extra points depending on poses etc.
