What it is: A version of a scavenger hunt where you take pictures of things (and often yourself doing fun things).
Best for: A small to large group, maybe 4 to 10 people.
What you need: A camera and a list of things to take pictures of!
How to play: Just like other scavenger hunts, the goal is to go down the list and cross off as many items as you can. Other than that basic rule, the game is super easy to customize however you’d like.
Scavenger Hunt Game Rules & Instructions
Here are a few suggested photo scavenger hunt rules. You can modify them depending on age group and amount of people participating.
- It is best to set a reasonable time limit, an hour is enough to accomplish most of the items above.
- Each team or individual will be given a sheet with a list of items. You must find all items and snap a photo. Once the timer ends, whoever has the most pictures wins.
- If participating as a team, you must always stay together. One cannot wander off and try and find items on their own.
- Set boundaries on transportation e.g. walking only, no cars, electric bikes etc.
- Optionally, require a person or everybody to be in the photo with the clue. The more people interacting with the elements in each photo, the better!
- Do not enter private property. Pictures taken from afar are ok.
- Play fair. Remember it’s all in good fun and there is no need to ruin someone’s good time.
- All items must be photographed on one phone or camera.
- Make sure you set parameters within the search to avoid anyone getting lost e.g. stay within Villa Park or an area within Villa Park.
- Do not take a photo of two items together. They must be in separate pictures.
- If you’re setting point values to each item, make sure you are specific.
- Decide if duplicates count more than once e.g. a photo of more than one red library box.
- Check off any found items in order to keep track. At the end of the challenge, your team will be asked to show a picture for each item checked off.
