DISPOSABLE CAMERA RELAY

A crazy scavenger hunt where each team has a disposable camera and a vehicle to get around town in (I recommend adult drivers) Give them a list of items, worth different points, to take pictures of.

You can develop the pictures at a one-hour place and see results that evening, or develop the pictures for a PowerPoint slide presentation (many places will develop pictures on CD) the next week. Options are endless!!!

Sample List:

Mandatory Category (Must have all of these to qualify for prize!)
A PICTURE OF

    A creative introduction picture to that particular team’s evening
    3 team members being pushed in a shopping cart
    Someone in group chugging out of a 2 liter bottle of Pepsi
    Entire team hanging upside down

1000 point items
A PICTURE OF

    Team member hugging a stranger
    Lady scolding child
    A guy coming out of the girl’s bathroom
    A grocery clerk singing
    Two teenager’s kissing (can’t be team members)
    Someone ordering fast food
    Lady walking her dog.

1500 point items
A PICTURE OF

    Person peeling out in a car (team vehicles not included)
    A fireman in uniform
    A team member rubbing a bald mans head
    Someone (other than a team member) buying “Depends”
    Little kid singing
    Someone giving a stranger a noogie
    Team member hugging a gas station attendant

3000 point items
A PICTURE OF

    A dog relieving himself on a fire hydrant
    A traffic accident
    Old lady on the ground yelling “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”
