Get your family outdoors on Family Day Weekend!

We’ve partnered with the Town of Drayton Valley to get you and your family outdoors, exploring the Drayton Valley area!

We’ve got 3 Scavenger Hunts that you can try with your family or cohort! Each hunt includes fun facts in the theme of the hunt.

  1. Ice and Easy – “Easy” Ice themed hunt at Discovery Park, Drayton Valley.  Start at the Rotary House Parking Lot to find your first clue which will lead you through the park, picking up more clues along the way to help you decipher the hunt’s mystery word.  Paved trails, fairly short distance.
  2. Trial by Fire – “Intermediate” Fire themed hunt starts at the  Lions West Valley Park Day Use and has you searching for clues to help you decipher the mystery word, all the way to the Ivan-To Park Entrance. Paved Trails, one road crossing, longer distance.
  3. Don’t Go Breaking My Heart –  Challenging Hearts and Love theme hunt! Use a map to find all the hearts hanging in the trees along the trail.  Along your “heart stopping” way, you’ll be picking up clues to help you decipher the mystery word.   Forested trail with steep sections.  You should wear footwear with good treads or have a pair of cleats handy.
