The Guru's News, Issue #001
May 2010

Well, the long-awaited first edition of "The Guru's News" is finally here. This ezine aims to keep you up to date on scavenger hunt news and new scavenger hunts and ideas that I find or site visitors submit.


Scavenger Hunt Guru is on the radio!

Living the Country Life contacted me a couple of months ago to ask me to do a radio interview about organizing a nature scavenger hunt. It turned out to be a very short clip with a big commercial break in the middle, but The Guru was definitely on air. You can listen to the clip here: "Organizing a nature hunt."

Visitor's can now submit your own scavenger hunts!

There is now a place for site visitors to share your own scavenger hunt lists and ideas. You can even add a photo! My hope is that this will bring fresh ideas to this growing scavenger hunt resource as visitors share their own experiences. A few folks have already added their scavenger hunts to the mix. I have currently grouped the submission pages by kids, teens and adults. Check it out here: Your Scavenger Hunts

Scavenger Hunt Guru is on Facebook

The official Facebook page for Scavenger Hunt Guru is now up. This page has been created for folks to share ideas, ask questions and get answers from the scavenger hunt community. Check it out!


I will be highlighting a new scavenger hunt or two in each issue of "The Guru's News." For the first issue I'd like to give a shout out to site visitor Linda Fechner who contacted me looking for help creating a scavenger hunt with a "service excellence" theme that she was organizing for her workplace. After several emails back and forth Linda put together a wonderful activity for her office complete with a word search. I encourage you to check out her Service Excellence Training and share it with your workplace as well.

For the Kids

Of course I can't leave the kids out so be sure to check out my newest addition to the scavenger hunt collection, a fun new Zoo Activity just in time for spring!

As always, happy hunting! Feel free to contact me if you need help creating your next scavenger hunt.

The Guru
