4th of July Scavenger Hunt

4th of July Scavenger HuntToday, we continue our 40 free scavenger hunts with a 4th of July Scavenger Hunt that you want you can put on the calendar in a few months! Huge shout out to Ray Hintz & StuMinStuff.com for sharing all these incredible scavenger hunts!

Scavenger hunts are a fantastic way to incorporate teamwork and communication. It’s also a great way to host a fun evening with your group. Remember that you will be traveling around, so you will likely need a few bucks for gas, food and some prizes, but other than that, you are ready to roll.

Over the next 40 days, we will be sharing one scavenger hunt each day, but if you absolutely can’t wait to see them all or want them all in one place, you can download the Kindle version on Amazon!

Today, we continue our scavenger hunt list with a 4th of July Scavenger Hunt.

PREP TIME – 10-15 minutes

ITEMS NEEDED – Drivers, PDF Printouts for Each Team, Prizes (optional)

GAME TIME – 3-4 Hours

PARTICIPANTS – Everyone (Teams of 4-5)


Print the 4th of July Scavenger Hunt before you start. Once your group arrives, take a moment to determine how many teams you will need, separate your group into teams, and assign them drivers.

Give each team a list of items to look for and send them out. Make sure to give them a time in which they need to be back.

Once they arrive back from the hunt, have them bring in their items to be scored one by one. Keep a record of their points and announce the top scores to the entire group, concluding with the winning team!

Stay tuned for more amazing Scavenger Hunts. Happy Hunting!


1. Make sure you have your drivers lined up beforehand. Make sure they understand that driving safely is a top priority!

2. Create an excel sheet for the items on the list and a breakout for the score. If you are unable to do so, have someone set it up! This will greatly expedite the tallying process. If you have a large group, have multiple people tallying scores.

3. Give the winning team a huge firework or other patriotic themed prizes for their victory!

4. Have teams dress up in All-American gear and award points for the best or most creative players and teams!
