“The Hunt” was on for
Families over the Holiday
When the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo (BAMZ) closed in early December, the Bermuda Zoological Society’s (BZS) education team were unable to host their traditional Mix and Match Christmas camp. Nonetheless, the team knew that families would be looking for activities to entertain their little ones over the winter break - “The Hunt” was afoot!
On December 21st the first teams that registered for “The Hunt” began their quest. In this socially-distanced outdoor family experience, everyone was able to join in. Participants first had to crack codes to unlock locations across Bermuda and then they set out on an adventure to explore and discover their island home.
At each stop the families answered questions and completed challenges. As they learned about each location’s natural history, the tasks revealed a letter, which at the end would help them to unscramble the final password. BZS educator Dr. Alex Amat kept in touch with each family via WhatsApp to occasionally help where necessary, and in turn they sent her their answers, photos, and video recordings of their adventures.

Some families completed “The Hunt” in one day, while others fit the different locations into their schedule over a period of a few days, accommodating naps, meals, and age of the crew. Word spread, and “The Hunt”, which was originally available for the few days before Christmas, was extended to accommodate requests from families that wanted to participate in the fun.
Over 80 families registered, and those taking part have been able to experience and learn more about their island they thought they knew so well. The feedback received from the participating families was awe-inspiring; “We’ve had so much fun you’ve really made our Christmas holidays. We have learnt loads too!! Thanks so much!!” said the McGoun family. “This was awesome, thank you! Earlier [our daughter] actually said ‘I think our prize is how much fun we had’. We really had such a great time. Thanks for putting it all together! We will definitely be visiting those spots again.” remarked the Clammer family.
This edition of “The Hunt” is now closed, but the BZS education team are busy working on the next edition of “The Hunt” for the midterm break. It will feature new locations, new challenges, new experiences, and lots more fun!
