Hello Nikki,

I did get the treasure hunt download fine. Our party will be in November the 2 or 3 weekend. It is for my daughter who will be turning 16. If you have any good suggestions for this age please let me know? We live in a rural area and have our home on 10 acres. We live in Baroda, Michigan in the United States. We might have between 15 and 20 kids in all. I have read through the book once and need to go back through it again. Thank you for your e-mail

I appreciate your follow up.

I am thinking of using the treasure hunt in a weekend of events during our Island Packet Sailboat Rendezvous. We are the Island Packet dealer for Florida and the Caribbean and every year we host a rendezvous for all the owners in the area. The weekend includes cocktail party, awards banquet, dinner and dancing, seminars. Etc. This is my first year to be in charge of this event and I am a bit overwhelmed with everything I have to get done.

I am thinking of using the treasure hunt on Saturday when we have a sailboat race, however, not everyone wants to participate in the race. I am using the game to fill some of the time for those who choose not to be in the race. To make things easier for me I am considering doing away with the combination portion of the game. I thought I could make it part of the rules that they cannot put the pieces of the puzzle together to determine the clue until they have collected all six pieces.

I liked the ideas for the tasks/challenges you sent with the game. Since we are a sailboat group, I am trying to come up with ideas centered around pirates or nautical things.

Hi Nikki,
We had our treasure hunt last Friday. It was a big success. I added some ending clues so the boys would have to walk paces in various directions to find the treasure (actual gold Sacagawea dollars) buried in four separate chests. It took some time and thinking to set up for four groups of three kids and all starting at different locations and ending in four different locations. But it worked wonderfully. It helped me get started and easy to add various twists to it.

I ordered two, different age groups, games. I will be using the younger game in October. It’ll be fun. Thanks

My party is scheduled for Saturday, December 3rd. The party will be held at our cabin at White Rock outside of Fayetteville, Arkansas. We have a large outside area around the cabin where I plan to conduct the party…weather willing:-) The party is for my son’s 9th birthday and there will be 8 8-9 year olds attending. I am tying the Treasure Hunt into the Survivor’s theme of the party…I haven’t completely figured it all out yet but am working diligently to make it a huge success. I have decided that the party invitations will be hand delivered to each child…the invitation will be on vellum paper stained and burned, rolled up and enclosed with sand in a corked bottle! I think it will be really cute!

Hi Nikki,

Thank you for checking in with me. I have read the scavenger hunt book all the way through. We are having the party this weekend and the theme is the Pirate Treasure Hunt. The occasion is the first boating rendezvous for our Northern Neck Sail & Power Squadron. Boats will be rafting up together in the creek near our house and boating over for a barbecue. The age range for our group is mid 30’s to 80’s. There were a lot of fantastic ideas in your book and the pirate theme pack. I think we are going to have a lot of fun with it.

Hi there.
I have received the info and printed it off. Thank you. I live in Cary, North Carolina and our neighborhood has a Ladies Bunco group.
Each June, we host a poolside party which has a theme. This year, our theme is Pirates. The ages of the women are from 30 to 50. We have it catered and there is a DJ. My group is also in charge of games. So I thought a treasure hunt would be fun. I am still digesting the material to see how I can make it work for our group. But I may also use this theme for my sons Bday party in July. He will be 6. Wish me luck!

What a fantastic help your material has been. I got so motivated by it yesterday that I did most of my decision making and planning in one morning!

Thanks a million for offering to send the spreadsheet in a form that works for me. You’re the best!

Ian, thanks for the prompt response we managed to download the stuff and the bunch of 6 year olds loved running round our garden looking for the clues, thanks a lot

Thanks for asking. I am planning a treasure hunt birthday party for my daughter who is turning 11 at the end of this month. We live on a farm in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan near but not on Lake Superior. We have several barns, open fields, and trees scattered about. I have read through it once and now am working my way through deliberately to make it work for this setting. We plan to have them start in the late afternoon and finish just as it is getting dark so that it is just a little bit scary for those with an active imagination. I have flashlights to give each child.

Next spring I am going to use the treasure hunt planner again when I host my book club in May when the spring wildflowers are in bloom. I plan to adapt it so that they have to search in the fields and 2-track roads through the woods to find particular species of wildflowers and ferns. This treasure hunt will start about 1 mile from our house and wind it way along the neighborhood with one or two of the stations at neighbors homes along the way. One neighbor has Alaskan Husky sled dogs and another couple are vegans who have a 2 acre organic garden and raise honey bees. I was very excited to find your planner because I have wanted to do this for a long time but have not had the time to work it all out.

I will email you if I have difficulties. Thanks so much for the follow-up. I have attached a couple of pictures to show you where we live.

I have had 1 small treasure hunt so far to ‘test’ it out- that was fun. Have another one planned for my grandchildren which will be at their home. ‘Treasure’ will be treats that each one favors! I have found your plans very easy to use- especially like the riddle-type clues.

I am in charge of planning a children’s event to celebrate/kick-off our capital stewardship campaign for our new ‘family center.’ The adults will attend their own ‘event’ , but we hope to include them at some point/in some way at our celebration. We’ll have children from Kindergarten up to 6th grade. Several years ago I created a carnival for the children’s event.

I want to create the whole ‘ambiance’ and not just have a treasure hunt… The search could end in the new facility.

Hi Nikki,

I am planning a party for Washington state, USA. It will be May 13. It’s my son’s 13th birthday; there will be about 15 guests ages 12 and 13. We aren’t planning a theme so far. We had the idea for this kind of party or a scavenger hunt, but we are really busy right now and felt overwhelmed by putting it all together, so finding your party planner was very helpful. We are just starting to put it all together, so I don’t have any firm details.
Tentatively, I am planning a couple of scavenger hunt type clues starting at a local playing field and leading to a local park where the main treasure hunt party game will be set up, similar to the party guide. This is because my son really wanted to go all through town, but the treasure hunt in one location seemed a lot more practical, so I’m trying to compromise a bit.

I’ll email you if I have any questions as things get more definite.

Thanks, you’ve taken some pressure off!
