Scavenger Hunt - Garrison Woods (Extended till end of Feb due to cold weather!)

Hey Calgary - Garrison Woods!
Welcome to our first Scavenger Hunt of 2021!

Faraway Families is a story about two best friends learning to stay close to their families who live far away. This year, the story resonates more than ever for families who may not live far away but may feel far away and we wanted to do something about it. Following the recent success of our first community scavenger hunt in Lake Bonavista, Garrison Woods was nominated as the next community to host.

Until the end of Feb 2021 Faraway Families will be hiding images of our adorable characters in the Garrison Woods community for families to find together and be entered to win amazing prizes from awesome local vendors. Not only is the Faraway Families’ Scavenger Hunt an opportunity to enjoy a family-focused, active and free event, we aim to stimulate conversation about how life may look and feel a little different for families as we navigate extended family connection differently than ever before.
