The Great Smoky Mountains Scavenger Hunt

The time is now to gather your friends, family and co-workers to create a team! On March 22nd the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont will hold its 7th annual Great Smoky Mountains Scavenger Hunt.

The hunt ranges over most of the park, using roads and official trails to access particular areas. Some questions require research to answer. As it is illegal to remove items from the park, one digital camera with a flash memory card will be required per team.

Questions are awarded point values based on level of difficulty. The team with the most points may get prizes, but everybody wins! You can have as many people on your team as you like, provided all fit into one vehicle. The event will take place over a 25-hour period with teams receiving their hunt questions via e-mail by 3:30 p.m. on Friday, March 21st and are due back at Tremont no later than 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 22nd with your answers. A light dinner will be served while tallying takes place. This event is limited to 200 participants so register early!

One registration form per team must be completed and submitted to Tremont. If interested, the cost is $50 per team, if registered by Thursday, March 20th at 4 p.m. It will be $60 after that time. Proceeds from the Great Smoky Mountains Scavenger Hunt will benefit the Tremont Scholarship Fund.
