Group Scavenger Hunts

Historic Oakland Foundation is excited to offer a new way for groups to experience Oakland Cemetery – custom group scavenger hunts! Your company, organization, student group, or family will enjoy sleuthing through the cemetery on a hunt created just for you. Explore Oakland while searching for clues hidden within gravestone inscriptions, magnificent mausoleums, stone statues, and more. Choose your degree of difficulty, tell us your time frame, and share any group goals to help HOF staff design the perfect interactive experience!

Designed for a group of three or four people, each scavenger hunt packet contains nine to twelve cryptic riddles to solve, several photo challenges to complete, and a top-secret answer key with fun facts. We’ll include a Self-Guided Tour Map to help you navigate around Oakland’s 48 acres and provide clue context. This map can be used during future visits to Oakland. Each hunt will focus the search in three to four different areas of the cemetery.

Larger groups can purchase multiple scavenger hunt packets and split into teams. Each hunt packet has different riddles and clues, so teams can go head-to-head for time, accuracy, and bragging rights.

We’ll email you the materials in .pdf form a week before your visit. Just print at home and head out for your hunt.
