Spring Scramble Scavenger Hunt
March 20 - May 31
Gather a small group of friends or family for a day of cemetery sleuthing on this self-guided scavenger hunt throughout historic Oakland Cemetery!
Through May 31, purchase your printable Spring Scramble packet online (one per team), download, print, and follow all-new cryptic clues to solve riddles. Don’t want to print? When you purchase your packet, your receipt will contain a link to access an online version of the hunt. No reservations are required to participate.
Choose from three different packets, organized by degree of cemetery riddle difficulty:
- Easy: Kid-friendly riddles and perfect for families (expected hunt time:1 hour)
- Medium: Challenging, but not impossible to solve, riddles (Expected hunt time: 1.5-2 hours)
- Deadly: Try it if you dare (Expected hunt time: 2-3 hours)
Each team that purchases a packet will be entered into a drawing for prizes. Prizes include tour tickets, memberships, Museum Store gift cards, and more. There will be weekly prize drawings, and winners will be notified by email.
The Spring Scramble packet ($25 plus tax) includes one self-guided tour map (a $5 value) that can be used on return visits.
All proceeds from the Spring Scramble benefit Historic Oakland Foundation’s mission to preserve, restore, enhance, and share Oakland Cemetery.
