Our second annual Eastern Shore Summer Scramble turned a typical day at the beach into an adventure for all of our scramblers this past weekend! In an amazing race style scavenger hunt, teams ventured up and down the Eastern shore for the chance to win awesome prize packages. They stopped at different tourist attractions and collected points by learning about history, identifying animals, doing interesting activities, dressing up in team costumes, and having tons of fun!
Whether it was visiting the local Island Creamery, or the NASA Visitor Center right down the road from the Field Station, or Savage Neck an hour away, there were many opportunities to explore all the Eastern Shore has to offer. While some teams brought out their competitive side to win first place and stop at many of our exciting destinations, others took their time at each place they went and explored a little on their own. Either way, it was a fun day for each family, and everyone left with experiences and different prize packages to take home.
We want to thank all of our partner organizations that supported us by donating prizes and being landmarks for our scramblers this year! Just to name a few – the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, Island Butterfly, Daisy’s Island Cruises, The Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum, Saxis Island Museum, Taylor House Museum, and CTG radio.
