Scavenger Hunt

Join us at 10 AM on Wednesday, June 19 at Castle in the Clouds in Moultonboro, NH.

We will meet at Shannon pond and together we will walk around and explore the grounds while finding the items on our scavenger hunt list. After exploring, we will enjoy a snack together (which will be provided).

Do not enter through the main gates to Castle in the Clouds (unless you want to pay and do a tour of the Castle. Check out the link above for info on that) Enter the grounds off of Route 171 and take Ossipee Park Road. Park at the white gates and walk down to the pond. We will see you there!

There are some kid friendly hikes and the pond has LARGE rainbow trout that can be fed, so bring your quarters for the fish food!
