Looking to shake things up a bit today? We've put together our favourite Outdoor Scavenger Hunt list. Fun for all ages.

Do you know the history behind the good ol' Scavenger Hunt? Scavenger Hunts evolved from ancient folk games but gained mass popularity thanks to American gossip columnist Elsa Maxwell (1883-1963). Elsa was known for hosting epic parties for NYC high society figures. And in the 1930's, she introduced scavenger hunts and treasure hunts, which created a Society's obsession with them. This scavenger-hunting craze among New York's elite was satirized in the 1936 film My Man Godfrey.

Be an Elsa. Happy Outdoor Scavenger Hunting!
