Family Easter Scavenger Hunt, March 22-28

This year's scavenger hunt is not your typical kids Easter Scavenger Hunt where we hide easy eggs to find everywhere you look and the kids run around to get them as quick as they can. Instead, this year, we are challenging our local families to get out in the park and find our hidden objects.  Join Swansboro Parks and Recreation for a family fun Easter Scavenger Hunt during the week of  March 22- March 28. This year's Easter Scavenger Hunt will take place at the Swansboro Municipal Park where families will have a full week to set out to find all of our hidden game pieces/objects in the park.  

We will be using the Scavr app to provide clues and collect points for each hidden game piece/ object you find.  Each found piece is worth points depending on how well the object is hidden.  Collect them all or as many points as you can to receive an entry into the raffle drawing for a chance to win a special Easter basket prize on behalf of the Southern Coast Realty Group.  We will email all registrants the scavenger hunt link for the Scavr app after you registering for the event. Registration is $5 per family.
