The Visitor Centre is excited to announce the beginning of the second annual Campbell River Visitor Centre city-wide Scavenger Hunt.

The goal of the hunt is to highlight the many exciting activities that are available within our beautiful community.

The objective of the Scavenger Hunt is to complete the 15 tasks found throughout the community. The adventure takes you to parks, heritage sites, museums as well as other unique Campbell River destinations.

The event starts Monday, June 6th 2011. To participate, stop by the Visitor Centre located in Tyee Plaza to pick up your Scavenger Hunt package. Participants will have two weeks to complete the clues. Examples from the 2010 Hunt include discovering on which parallel Campbell River falls and finding our community’s tallest First Nations totem pole.

To complete the Scavenger Hunt, participants will need to submit their completed tasks including all evidence to a Visitor Centre team member during Discover Campbell River Day starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 18 in the Spirit Square beside the Visitor Centre. Submissions must be in by 3:00pm as the winner will be announced at 3:30 p.m.

For more information on the scavenger hunt or Discover Campbell River Day please stop by the Visitor Centre at 1235 Shoppers Row or call 250-830-0411, ext. 1.
