Winter Scavenger Hunt | February 10th

Do you want to get a break from all hard work and enjoy a FREE fun outside activity which brings some healthy exercise? Then gather your friends, fellow students, housemates, anyone who’ll like this activity as well (no need to be a member of Apollo or an MCH student), and join a nice wintery scavenger hunt on Wednesday February 10th!
You can start from 18:00 onwards and the end time is 20:30 at the latest (you can start a bit later than 18:00 if you prefer). You’ll start at home (in Wageningen) and in groups of 2 you’ll walk (or cycle, whatever you prefer) a nice route across Wageningen, while solving puzzles to get to the next destination. When signing up, we ask for your phone number in order to send these puzzles to you via Whatsapp (and so that you can share your answers and location with us). At the end, a surprise will await you!
So get off that couch and sign up together with your favorite scavenger hunt partner! Make sure that both you and your buddy sign up. You can also sign up alone, then we will match you to a teammate and you’ll get to know someone new in this isolated time 😉
