L.A.C.E.S. Scavenger Hunt!

A Scavenger Hunt for the Whole Family!

Last week, L.A.C.E.S. had the privilege of showcasing our in-house designed scavenger hunts of the Natural History Museum! As part of Bain & Company’s Community Impact Day, children who participate in the L.A.C.E.S. Refugee program were able to partner with adults working in the D.C. area to have an exciting day checking out one of the Capital’s most famous museums! It was a tremendous success, so upon request we’ve decided to distribute our different scavenger hunt guides to anyone interested in doing it for themselves!

Below you’ll find our 6 different scavenger hunts located in the Natural History Museum in a downloadable, PDF format. Each has been separated by their level of difficulty along with a brief description! Download, share with your friends, and enjoy!
