Scavenger Hunts

Inside of your own mobile app, you can create, manage, and score scavenger hunts.

The App My Community scavenger hunt platform has a lot of flexibility in order to be make the scavenger hunt(s) unique to your property. Your hunt, your style. 

Each step/clue in a hunt has three format options – Photo, Clue/Answer, or QR Code Scanning.

There is no limit to the number of steps each hunt can have and the step/clue format can variety throughout the hunt.

You have the ability to show all clues at once, so people can pick their clues or make them go to each in a specific order


You can add as many clues as you need to a scavenger hunt. 

Make the clues as easy or difficult as you would like – therefore, you can also offer your users a little hint for the tough ones!


Users are prompted to take a photo or selfie for their response to the clue.

Photos can be shared by either the user or the community to social media.

Photo steps can also have a hashtag and sharing comment to any photo shared on social media.

Different Types of Hunts

We have a few ways to add a scavenger hunt into your app.

Activity Button

Create an activity around a scavenger hunt to enhance the thrill of competition amongst your users!  No one can see the clues until the hunt begins and prizes can be awarded for the winners!


Users can be guided throughout your community via clues while seeing all of the amenities your community has to offer directly from your app’s home screen. 

PRO-TIPThis model is ideal for new users or those looking to learn more about joining your community.

Scavenger Hunt List

Users can access a list of scavenger hunts at any time via the main menu and do them at their leisure. 

PRO-TIP: Use this only when you have multiple scavenger hunts that you want members to have access to at anytime (e.g. Explore type hunts for multiple different age groups)


If your hunt is associated to an activity or to a prize, you may want to verify the answers.

  • QR Scans are automatically graded when the scan is completed.
  • Clue/Answer types are tested to see if the user’s answer matches the actual answer exactly, but otherwise can be scored manually
  • Photo steps require manual scoring

Staff members can grade answers via your app on their own phones/tablet by a simple swipe.  Users have the ability to see their completed hunt scores at any time after grading.
