OA Scavenger Hunts

Open to students, faculty, and staff! 

For these unique hunts, we've hidden a variety of QR codes around the Allendale campus. Each code leads you to online content that we put together pertaining to a (usually) outdoor theme.

  • The hunt is designed to be done in a sequential order where the next location will only be given to you in the content for the previous. 
  • Our intent is to update the course with new locations & new themes every couple weeks for your continued enjoyment. Must register for each individual hunt. 


Hunt #2 Details & Registration 

Fall 2020 Outdoor Scavenger Hunts

Hunt #2

Theme: Outdoor Workout

Hunt 2 is about increasing your physical fitness. Enjoying the outdoors is easier when it doesn't feel like work. Putting in a little effort on the front-end will help make your next adventure feel like a breeze. Not to mention all the other benefits you'll get from activity such as increased focus and lower stress levels. We feel the opposite of this is also true. The natural beauty of the outdoors can make your workout much more enjoyable. For this you will be taken on a tour of the Tower Trails located on the southwest side of the Allendale campus. Each location will provide you a different exercise that can be modified to fit your fitness level. Starting with a warm up at the 1st location, visit each one for a full-body workout designed by our Fitness & Wellness Staff.
