What exactly is this QUEST?
The “Quest” in QuestFest stands for our main event- an epic scavenger hunt through the Historic District of Savannah, GA! The twist? The teams, which are made of of 10-15 members each (minimum of two adults and a maximum of five), are after experiences and not items. Using a smart phone, groups will choose challenges, submit photographic evidence and receive points via our QuestFest app. The more creative a submission, the more points awarded, so be sure to think outside of the box because the winning teams will take home tons of cash and prizes! The best part of the whole thing? The challenges, which we’re calling Quests, are designed with Girl Scout values in mind, so while we’re having fun, we’ll be making the world a better place too!
The reviews are in! Girl Scout QuestFest is a hit!
