Department of Tourism’s Historical Treasure Hunt held earlier this month was a family, fun event for everyone involved.
Twelve teams, consisting of 36 adults and children turned out for the early morning hunt, which covered historic sites such as the Guardhouse Hill, Webster Memorial United Church, Mission House and other unique sites in the district.
Leading the scavenger scurry was Team Cromwell’s Deserters who deciphered all the clues correctly and in record time. The team consisted of Wes Heistand, David Conolly, and Stacy Mathis.
This annual event is held in partnership with the Cayman National Cultural Foundation during the organisation’s month-long celebration and festivities for Cayfest.
“The Historical Treasure Hunt is a fun, family event that is looked forward to by a wide cross section of the community” said Director of Tourism Shomari Scott. “
“The Department of Tourism is pleased to have once again had the opportunity to partner with the CNCF to host this event and we are delighted to see the increasing numbers of residents and visitors who enthusiastically participate in this learning-through-fun experience.”
Sponsors provided a bevy of prizes including Camana Bay gift cards, Sunshine Suites staycation, Cayman Airways tickets and attraction passes from the Tourism Attractions Board.
