What is a Video Scavenger Hunt?
A Video Scavenger Hunt is like a regular Scavenger Hunt in that it is a seek and find game. However, a Video Scavenger Hunt is different than a regular Scavenger Hunt in that it includes recording activities at certain places. Rather than (1) marking the found item off a list or (2) collecting the found item; instead, the participant(s) finds a location and completes an activity.
Example: Find a fountain and create a video of team members making swimming and diving motions in front of the fountain.
A Video Scavenger Hunt is similar to a Photo Scavenger Hunt, which also focuses on engaging the participants in an activity, rather than only collecting or finding items.
