Searchapalooza is not your ordinary fundraiser. Teams will work and play together to find locations, scavenge items, and answer trivia questions. With the streets of Charlottesville as your game board, you will have 2 hours to complete as many activities as possible, earning points along the way.
The scavenger hunt will kick off at Basecamp, aka the patio of Champion Brewing, where teams will gather by 11:00 am. After welcome remarks, teams will receive clue packets and at 11:30 am Searchapalooza will begin. Teams will have until 2:00 pm to return their scavenged items and team photos to the final destination.
Your objective is to obtain as many points as possible. You'll do that by visiting locations, collecting scavenged items, and answering trivia questions.
Please do NOT spend any money to obtain items. Do not break the law, unless you can post your own bail. For photos - ALL team members must be included in the photo. Travel by walking/running or other manual transportation. Motorized transportation will disqualify participants unless for accessibility. Each team must return their scavenger hunt packet at the end of the event, no later than 2:00 pm. All pages mustbe turned in to be scored. Any team that arrives after 2:00 pm will be deducted points, after 2:15 pm will be disqualified.
Searchapalooza invites explorers of all ages to participate! There will be a special clue packet for children and youth.
Registration for kids under 12 is free. We ask that parents, guardians, and supervising adults register for Searchapalooza.
Prizes and awards will be given for:

If you can't make the event, but want to enjoy Searchapalooza for yourself, then register for a "Not Attending" Ticket and we'll send you a copy of the clue packet after the event.
