    What people say about The Everyday Adventure Scavenger Hunts

    Marsha S, Yes Yes Marsha

    The scavenger hunt that Sam from The Everyday Adventure organised was INCREDIBLE.

    As soon as we got the list of items, our team was totally impressed with how detailed, well thought out and clear they were. What we hadn’t bargained on was how much fun they would be to do – and the added bonuses of us seeing so much of the city, and getting to know our team mates so much better.

    As well as some fun and thrilling activities, we also had some that involved gentle, quality time together (like a ride on a ferris wheel and walks along interesting bridges). Without this hunt, there’s no way I would have explored the city as much on my own. And I got to learn so much about the city!

    Samantha Sutherland is a genuine treasure.  She is a joy to be around. Her laughter is contagious. Her spirit lights up the room.  The sparkle in her eyes puts you instantly at ease.

    I recently had the pleasure of participating in her Scavenger Hunt.  Judging from the course, she knew the city like a local.  It was a great way to discover the town.  Large and small, fun and challenging . . . Sam set a course that all levels of participants could engage in, including me and I can have a tendency toward curmudgeonry, especially when it comes to games. This event absolutely delighted.

    There is no better (or more fun) way to explore and discover any city than doing The Everyday Adventure’s Scavenger Hunt!

    Our adventure was filled with laughs and varied, yet attainable, challenges that helped us to work together as a team while doing and seeing things we never would have if we explored the city on our own.

    I had a blast and can’t wait to do another one!

    You picked awesome places!  I learned things about Chicago that I would never have discovered on my own.  You found the hidden gems that would have been invisible to a regular tourist.  I got to see Chicago in an entirely new way through the Cultural Center and the ferris wheel.

    It helped me realize my own capacity for stretching beyond my comfort zone.  I developed my own capacity for resourcefulness and resilience.  At one point my phone almost died. Normally I would have just sucked it up.  But I was in a competition, so I asked a barista for a charge and ultimately ended up getting a customer who was a total stranger to help me out.
