I am sure that lots of people have done this before, but I am looking for some help in setting up a treasure hunt kind of game for our group. First requirement would be that it would be safe, I don't want any of the kids getting lost or hurt. ( they range in age from 13 to 18 ) and the second requirement is that it would be educational, and last but not least fun!
From what I understand, Killarney is small enough and safe enough for something like this. If they are in groups with at least a sixteen year-old and stick to the touristy part of town?
The purpose of the game would be to get them to learn about the place we are at the people that live there, without driving anybody there too crazy. I also plan on getting the old guys doing it too. I figure that they should make up for their lack of speed with their experience.
some things i could use would be...
Irish sayings or words that they would not know.
clues to find points of interest in town where they would have to get someone to take a picture of all of them there.
Some history that they would have to do some research to find out some answers about.
a food that they might not of heard of that they would have to purchase bring to us and consume.
a special person in town that they would have to meet ,ask a question of, and would not mind having their picture taken.
any other ideas would be apreciated. I always think that they best way to learn something is to make it fun. thanks again
