LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The Boy Scouts of America Sagamore Council are preparing to host a virtual, adult only, event.
COVID-19 resulted in the cancellation of the scout's annual Easter egg hunt in the spring. To replace the canceled Easter egg hunt, the scouts are hosting a virtual treasure hunt.
Assistant Scout Executive for the Sagamore Council, Bryon Haverstick said he had to make some adjustments to his original plan.
"We decided to go virtual and we made it a treasure hunt instead of an Easter egg hunt because you can't hunt Easter eggs in October," said Haverstick.
Adults are encouraged to register online and will be given a number that corresponds to a treasure hidden in the woods. The boy scouts will search for the treasure hidden in the woods for the adults participating virtually.
The Boy Scouts will search for the treasure and the results will be shared online. Winning ticket holders will be announced on Cary Camp's website.
Haverstick believes this event is a great way to support local businesses.
"We've got different restaurants and breweries in town have donated gift cards or gift certificates, or gift baskets," said Haverstick. "The intent is to get them into the door and have them buy something else."
Tickets are on sale until Thursday, October 1st and the event will take place on Saturday, October 3rd. For more information on registration, go to the Scouting Event website.
