Sometimes when I am out hiking with a group of scouts, they seem to be more focused on getting from the starting point to the ending point than on looking around and experiencing the moment. Doing a scavenger hunt while hiking will help them really explore the world around them while they are walking.
The scavenger hunt below is a “check off” type hunt. They don’t actually bring the items with them. This fits in with the Leave No Trace guidelines which I posted a few days ago.

- Check-off list (get the printable version above)
While you are hiking, try to find the items on the check off list . When you see one of these items, check it off the list. If the item has a space after it, write what the item was in the space.
