Introduction
Scavenger Hunts are great team building activities, as well as an active way to get to know a topic. They are suitable for any location – urban, rural, woodland, seashore

Instructions
Divide Brownie Pack into teams (or use sixes):
If doing this at pack holiday then teams may be able to go off alone, but should be watched from a distance.
If in an urban location a leader will have to go with each team - to watch, not assist!
Choose your theme and distribute scavenger hunt sheets and allocate a time limit for the activity, so that teams have to return to a designated meeting point within that time.

OR
Colour chart scavenge:
Get some colour charts from local DIY shops; choose a colour spectrum appropriate to the time of year: e. g. Autumn. – rusts
Divide Brownies into small groups/pairs and give each a colour chart. Each group then has to find as many nature items that match their colour chart.

Or
Checklists:
Consider teh checklists on the following pages and use one per Six

Debrief/Discussion

Ask each group to share their findings.
Depending on which scavenger hunt the Pack use they may be able to make a picture /garden/ princess dress from the items collected.
