Steinbach Family Resource Centre (SFRC) has brought back their scavenger hunt once again this year.
Joanne Dalton from SFRC is very excited to kick things off, as this is a widespread event in the community, there are huge prizes, and everyone can play.
“Our grand prizes are worth over $5000 and it's completely free to play.”
How to Play
Dalton explains how the scavenger hunt works.
“We have a game board that is going to have 20 different locations around our community and you're going to go to that location,” she says. “You're going to find the feature that we have at that location, and you're going to complete a task.”
She notes you won’t know what the task is until you’re at the location.
“We're really trying to make it a little bit tricky, a little bit fun, and especially for those people who like to have a bit of a mystery to the game,” she says. “And every time you complete one task at one location, you are entered to win one of three amazing grand prizes.”
To prove that your entry has been completed, you enter it into their website, post your photo on social media, and tag SFRC on either Instagram or Facebook.
To get the game board, visit their website steinbachfrc.ca, where you can print it off.
Entries must be posted between Feb. 1-20, 2023 to be eligible.
The prize packages have been put together with items that have been donated and items that were bought with money from their sponsors.
Dalton says the grand prize is a customizable getaway adventure and camping gear. It is valued at $2300.
"It's a custom vacation package at Brereton Lake, so that can be two nights for an entire family, plus food and a boat rental,” she says. “Or it could be 4 nights without the other things. You decide how you want to spend that vacation package money. It's a $1000 voucher and then all of the camping gear."
Prize two is a family adventure valued at $1300.
“It's 4 bikes, plus a bunch of camping gear as well. There are gift cards in there for the Puzzler Escape Rooms and Uptown Alley Bowling.”
Lastly, the final package is called the local adventure and is valued at $600.
“It includes the Barkman Fire Pit, so you can stay cozy at home, and then a bunch of gift cards. All kinds of fun in there.”
The scavenger hunt starts on Wednesday, Feb. 1.
Dalton says this is a great activity to do with your family, and the best part is that entering is absolutely free.
“We're in the middle of a deep freeze. We know February can be a very hard month for people. Our sponsors make this possible for us to offer it to everyone at absolutely no cost, and there's still a ton of support going to SFRC for everything else that we're doing in the community.”
