cityHUNT is excited to announce that we are moving to Boston. Well, not our whole company, we are expanding to include Beantown. That’s right folks, we now Scavenger Hunt Boston! It has been a long awaited expansion into the Boston playing field and we can’t wait to start creating scavenger hunts throughout Boston. Look for us to make an official announcement of our launch into Boston sometime in July- August of this summer (we wanted to give all of our loyal followers a sneak peek).
Why cityHUNT decided to Scavenger Hunt Boston
We scavenger hunt NYC, so it’s time to add our rival. Just Kidding!
Reason #1: Give more people the opportunity to Scavenger Hunt
Everyone should have the opportunity to scavenger hunt! While we will build a scavenger hunt anywhere that is requested, we felt that the good people of Massachusetts and the rest of New England we missing out on the experience.
Reason #2: History/Landmarks
The city is teeming with History as it has played a key part in American History. There are numerous historic landmarks to visit. Here are just a few that we plan to include while we scavenger hunt Boston:
- Bunker Hill Monument
- Boston Common
- Boston Naval Shipyard
- The Constitution
- Faneuil Hall
- Paul Revere’s House
- Quincey Market
Reason #3: Dynamic Neighborhoods
One of Boston’s many nicknames includes “they city of neighborhoods”, due to the 21 distinct neighborhoods the city is split into. These neighborhoods provide a wealth of opportunities for scavenger hunts! With so many distinctive areas Boston provides several unique hunting grounds. Here are just a few of the new hunting grounds:
- Beacon Hill
- North End
We are going to offer our full line of Services in this new location. Not only will you be able to Scavenger Hunt Boston for team building purposes, but we will also be offering, Experiential Marketing, Bachelorette and Birthday Parties, as well as Mobile and Public Events.

We love to learn and create with our clients!
Recently we had a client request a scavenger hunt for a school field trip to the National Mall. This got us thinking how we wished we had a scavenger hunts for an educational field trip when we were in school!
Why the Gamification of Field Trips Work
Creates a More Interactive Experience
Through gamifiying the locations/information you want the children to take away from the field trip you are providing them with an opportunity to enga
ge with the material. This additional engagement can lead to better retention, because they will be able to associate it with an action or memory.
Healthy Competition Enhances the Experience
The gamficiation of a field trip creates a competitive level that normal field trips do not encompass. The will to win the scavenger hunt will appeal to the students and they will want to (even maybe look forward to) move through the different educational location and materials of the field trip.
Gives the opportunity to engage with and explore the environment
During a scavenger hunt the children participating are going to be asked to interact with their surrounding through exploration and social interactions with others. This gives them an opportunity to see things they might not normally experience on a field trip to the area.
Scavenger Hunts Make Field Trips More Fun!
We don’t want to forget an important point, scavenger hunts make learning fun!
We encourage all educational institutes to consider the gamfication of their field trips school outings. It offers the possibility to create life long memories for students while learning about material, team building and the world around them. cityHUNT is more than happy to provide more information on educational field trips and scavenger hunts. Just give us a call!
