Opt Outside Scavenger Hunt at Hale (flyer)

The following message is from Eric Arnold, the Executive Director of Hale:

 

As Thanksgiving approaches, Hale is excited to offer a new event to local families: our self-guided Opt Outside Scavenger Hunt, in partnership with REI. I’m hoping you’ll help us get word out at the Deerfield School about this fun way to #OptOutside.

 

On Friday, November 25th, seven geocaches will be hidden among Hale’s 1,137 acres. Geocaches are small boxes that contain information or objects. They’re hidden and known only by their geographic coordinates, which can be entered into a GPS device or smartphone.

 

Participants will be encouraged to park at Cat Rock, where they’ll pick up a map, instructions, and learn the coordinates of the geocaches. As they find each cache, they’ll place a sticker on their map, will learn about natural features in the area, and can post photographs of their adventure on Instagram.

 

Even better? There’s a prize. For every cache a participant finds, she or he will receive one entry in a drawing for a Membership Beach Session Bundle, valued at $520. Membership Beach families enjoy swimming lessons, arts and crafts, boating, fishing, archery, cookouts, and more.

 

Thank you in advance for your support. We hope you’ll #OptOutside at Hale on November 25th, and that we see you many times before and after the holidays.

 

All the best,
Eric
