Natick Scavenger Hunt: July 1-5

Go 4th and Explore Natick through an exciting scavenger hunt that will take you deep into our town’s history. The game will be open July 1-5 for everyone of all ages to play.

How to Play

  1. Download the Goosechase app onto your smartphone.

  2. Create an account and log in to the game with the game code GZL1R5 or search by the game title "Go 4th and Explore Natick". Each team member may download the app and log in to your team’s account, or you can just use one team member's device.

  3. Download your copy of Flat Jim, our 2021 Grand Marshal.

  4. Gather your team and choose which Mission(s) you will be undertaking. Be sure to read through the specifics of each Mission prior to starting, as you may need to take some things from home to complete them.

  5. Take a team picture/video with Flat Jim as proof of your successful completion of each Mission and upload them into the Goosechase app. Successful completion of a Mission awards you points. You can track your point levels as well as those of other teams right in the app. We can (and just might) award additional points for extra impressive proofs of Mission completion.  

  6. If you’d like more info on how to download, set up an account, or play, go to the Goosechase website.
