It's Quest season

Treasure hunts set in nature


Quests are like treasure or scavenger hunts set in nature and they are a great way to get kids outdoors.   Each quest takes from 30 minutes to one hour, including a handicap-accessible quest available (in Weymouth).


In all, there are 19 South Shore quest trails for your kids to try, including a faery themed adventure at Holly Hill Farm.  A complete guide is available for purchase at the HHF farm stand or at the link below.
