A scavenger hunt is a great way to explore and learn about the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
The Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont is holding a scavenger hunt inside the park this weekend. Participants who register for the scavenger hunt will receive 75 hunt questions/challenges via email by 3:30 p.m. on Friday, March 11 and must report to Tremont with their answers by 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 12, 2016. They will then enjoy a light dinner while results are tallied.
Some Great Smoky Mountains Scavenger Hunt questions will require a bit of research. Participants will travel on roads and trails throughout the park to photograph the answers to each question or prove they completed a challenge, as no items may be removed from the park.
Each team can have as many members as will safely fit into one vehicle. Cost to join the scavenger hunt is $50 per team if registered by 4 p.m. on Thursday, March 10 or $60 if registering on Friday or Saturday. Proceeds from the event will benefit Tremont programs.
The team will need one digital camera with a flash memory card to record their hunt answers. Each question has a point value based upon its difficulty. Winning teams will receive prizes.
