Initially a London based event that attracted over 100 teams each year and became the flagship event of the partnership between ShelterBox and The Scout Association. 2014 saw the first North West Region Scavenger Hunt with over 30 Teams taking part in Liverpool City Centre. In 2016 – 65 teams of Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts registered to take part and in 2017 we hope to have even more teams joining us from the North-West.
To date we have raised over £9,000 for ShelterBox
The objectives of the ShelterBox Scavenger Hunt are to challenge young people to learn more about disasters and disaster relief work, explore the city’s famous landmarks, and increase awareness about ShelterBox’s disaster relief work around the world.
WHO’S IT FOR?
The North West ShelterBox Scavenger Hunt is open to teams of six Cubs, six Scouts or six Explorer Scouts from Merseyside, Cheshire, West Lancashire, East Lancashire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester West, Greater Manchester East, Greater Manchester North and Isle of Man Scout counties. All Cub and Scout teams must be accompanied by a responsible adult, Explorer Scout teams may be accompanied or supervised remotely (the leader must be in the vicinity and in contact with the team). This promises to be a popular event and is available on a first come first served basis.
