Spring Break Scavenger Hunts Happening Across Massachusetts
Spring break just got a whole lot more interesting with a new scavenger hunt right around the corner.
Not everyone has the means to take a nice vacation to a different country, so why not have some fun right here in Massachusetts? That's where The Trustees come in. The preservation and conservation nonprofit is offering the Trustees Quest at five parks spread out across the state, and it all kicks off April 14.
Trustees Quest Locations
Bartholomew’s Cobble, Sheffield (Berkshires)
Copicut Woods, Fall River
Long Hill, Beverly
Rock House Reservation, West Brookfield
Rocky Woods , Medfield
Of course, the Fall River location is the closest to the SouthCoast. Have you ever visited Copicut Woods or thought about it? This might be the time.
What is neat about these hunts is that once you download the quest guides (hints and cool facts included), the learning and fun begin. It's also a Covid-friendly activity, as the hunt is guided by QR codes accessed by your phone camera. Digital badges are collected along the way, making the quest fun and a little competitive.
It's no coincidence that these scavenger hunts have kicked off just in time for Easter as there will be Easter-themed scavenger hunts this coming weekend.
Feel free to judge me but I'm a grown adult and I think these sound fun. What a neat way to not only keep the kids entertained but also see parts of this great state that the majority of us didn't even know existed.
So, how do you get yourself on these trails? Sign up via email, choose your first adventure, download the trail guide, lace up your walking shoes and begin.
While Copicut is free, some properties have admission fees. The Trustees membership program allows access to all properties.
Happy scavenger hunting. Hopefully, you can add this to the list of things to keep the kiddos (and yourself) busy this spring break.
