How to do the Saint Augustine Scavenger Hunt

To start the Saint Augustine scavenger hunt, you’ll want to either print or download the checklist below. It’s easy to share between a group or give one to each person and have them break up to find all of the items on the list. Teams are fun too, especially if you have small kids you’re doing the scavenger hunt with.

Printed St Augustine Scavenger Hunt

If you’re printing the scavenger hunt, we recommend printing two per sheet. You can fit two if you are printing on regular 8.5″x11″ paper and then you can cut it in half. One will fit if you need to print it larger, but there’s no need to waste paper if more than one person wants their own.

To make doing the scavenger hunt easier as you walk around town, print it on heavy paper or card stock. Don’t worry if you don’t have that though, just carry it in a small note pad to support it when you mark off items.’
