Vancouver Pride Scavenger Hunt

What is the Vancouver Pride Scavenger Hunt?

The Vancouver Pride Scavenger Hunt is a game to get your creative juices flowing and help you out of that summer-time withdrawal!

Organize your team of 2-5 players and participate from the comfort of your home. Your team leader will receive a list of challenges… maybe you’ll be fashioning a wig from spaghetti or turning your living room into a scene from Frozen! Complete as many challenges as you can and VPS will award points for each of your submissions.

We’ll be giving away Pride swag bags to the most creative team and some individual BONUS prizes along the way too!

The Spirit of the Game

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT PARTICIPANTS RESPECT SOCIAL DISTANCING RULES. IF YOU THINK A CHALLENGE REQUIRES YOU TO BREAK THESE RULES IN ORDER TO COMPLETE IT, YOU NEED TO THINK MORE CREATIVELY.

The spirit of the game is to engage with your teammates on a regular basis, think creatively, and have fun!

 

This page will not be updated during the game. Reminders, tips and game results will be posted to the Vancouver Pride Scavenger Hunt Facebook Page, and emailed to Team Leaders.
