MLK Day Family Scavenger Hunt 

The River Parkway Trust invites you and your family to go on an outdoor scavenger hunt adventure! If your little ones enjoy being outdoors, solving clues, and searching for hidden items, then this is perfect for you. Compete in a scavenger hunt race where you will look for six different tokens hidden at Sycamore Island (located near Children’s Hospital in Madera).  All clues are family friendly, so everyone will be part of the action!  This is a shorter course scavenger hunt appropriate for all ages, but may include up to 1.5 miles of walking.

Upon arriving at Sycamore Island a park host will greet participating groups, explain the  scavenger hunt rules and provide a map of the park with clues to each location. At 12:30 pm you and your family will set off on your hunt. The map will mark the general areas where each box of tokens can be found. Each mark will include a hint that will help you locate what you are looking for. After you have found all six boxes you will report to the Bait Shop; the first group to finish will win a 2-hour canoe rental (all equipment included, a $30 value).

Each $20 registration is for one family group of up to five participants and includes the $9 Sycamore Island day pass.  Event will take approximately 1.5 hours to complete and may include up to 1.5 miles of walking. No vehicle use is permitted during the scavenger hunt; terrain is dirt trails with some small inclines.  Advanced registration is required.  Please note: clues are designed to be child-friendly as this scavenger hunt is intended for families.

Full refunds provided for cancellations made at least 72 hours prior to the event date.  No refunds given for no-shows or late cancellations.
