The Great Nova Scotia Scavenger Hunt – Military Family Edition

By Sarah-Jean Mannette,

The Halifax & Region Military Family Resource Centre (H&R MFRC) is excited to announce the Great Nova Scotia Scavenger Hunt – Military Family Edition, presented by Angus G. Foods Inc., and with Irving Shipbuilding Inc. as the lead sponsor. Big thanks to these two organizations for sponsoring this event. Their financial support will directly support military families.

Nova Scotia is so proud to be Canada’s ocean playground that we put it on our license plate! Sure, we may not be venturing far (or at all) from home, so let’s explore our beautiful province by going on a virtual adventure! Get to know the Halifax and region that your H&R MFRC supports, from the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) to as far east as you can go in Cape Breton, and all places in between.

From ice water challenges (our version of a polar bear swim), showing an at-home DIY (success or fail), handcrafting an original burger fit for burger week , hosting your own Cape Breton-style kitchen party within your COVID bubble, bibbing up for your version of a Pictou-county lobster festival, showcasing your culture with music, or building a fire while camping (or glamping) at one of the 20 provincial parks. We invite you to participate in the Great Nova Scotia Scavenger Hunt!

Date: Sunday, June 27, 2021

Time: 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Registration deadline: Wednesday, June 23, 2021 (or we reach our max of 70 teams)

How The Game Works

As a Team, you compete in a variety of challenges (called ‘Missions’) throughout the day from the comfort of your home. Missions are arranged into various categories. You might be answering a trivia question by typing your answer or perhaps taking a photo or video while completing a task. You choose what missions you would like to complete. Prizes will be awarded and fun will be had so register today!

To register for this event, one member of the team must have an account with the H&R MFRC’s registration system.
