Newtown Youth and Family Services

Scavenger Hunt

Sponsored by:


Sunday, December 6th, starts at 1:00 pm
Location: Starts and ends at Newtown Youth & Family Services

Gather your "quaranteam" and embark on a scavenger hunt around Sandy Hook & Newtown for a chance to win Disney World tickets*!

We have planned a special scavenger hunt for you and your quaranteam which will bring you to 9 locations around Newtown and Sandy Hook. Teams will receive a clue that will lead them to a specific location where they will pick up the next clue. The team that finds all 9 locations and all 9 clues the quickest and returns to NYFS will win Disney World Tickets*!

You will need a smartphone with a QR code reader.

Both iPhone and Android smartphones allow users to scan QR Codes without downloading an additional app provided the operating system is Android 8 or higher or iOS 11 or higher on iPhones. The camera app is capable of scanning QR Codes on both operating systems.

If your iPhone is not updated with iOS 11 (which is highly unlikely) or higher you will need an additional app to scan QR Codes.
If your Android smartphone has not been upgraded to Android 8 or higher you will need an additional app to scan QR Codes.

To download a QR code reader, search your App Store for Free QR code Reader.
