2017 Boise Scavenger Hunt

Saturday, September 16, 2017
Basque Block
10am start time



The Boise Scavenger Hunt is back and the challenges are BIGGER and BETTER then ever, sending teams racing around downtown Boise on foot in search of clues. Teams complete challenges at each destination and the first team to cross the finish line is crowned the winner!

Gather your tribe and join us for this unique game experience that’s sure to bring fun, laughs, and memories that you, your friends, and family will be talking about for a long time to come. Trophies will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams, and the Team Spirit Award (a.k.a. best dressed) is coming back too!

Two set of clues: Adult and Family Friendly.

Adults – $20
Children (ages 7-18) – $5
Family Pass (up to 6 ppl) – $60
Team Pass (up to 10 ppl) – $80
Children 6 and under are free

Space is limited – last year we sold out – so don’t delay and get your tickets today!

All proceeds support student scholarships at Lee Pesky Learning Center. Scholarship money helps students with learning disabilities receive specialized intervention services that help children and adults reach their full learning potential.


We are also looking for race day volunteers! Sign up to volunteer here


Here’s a little look back on all the fun we had in 2016…
