What People Are Asking…

What are some ideas for a scavenger hunt?

You could go out and look for things to capture with a camera--the mission could be to take a photo or shoot a video clip. We all have smart phones in our pockets these days, but you could make it a bit more challenging by using a camera that records to film or tape.

How do you make a scavenger hunt?

All you need to do is make a list of items for people to find.

How many items should you have for a scavenger hunt?

It could be a long or short list, but a list of 5 is a good place to start.

How long should a scavenger hunt last?

It's probably better if it only lasts a few hours, but you can set the rules--maybe it could go on for days, weeks, months, years…longer than that…

What is a good inexpensive camcorder?

The most reliable ones are likely the ones recently made and they probably record to SD cards--but why not try one that records to tape--you can find really cheap ones on eBay--Sony VHS-C is a good type to start with.
