Depends. Our custom scavenger hunts could be developed without the use of technology, especially depending on the age of the participants. Often times, a child’s scavenger hunt is built as a traditional scavenger hunt, with unique elements but no or minimal smartphone usage.
Public scavenger hunts do require the use of a smartphone to participate in the entire scavenger hunt. However, a participant without a smartphone or social media can participate, but wouldn’t be able to complete all the challenges, and therefore would be limited to earning prizes, but not totally excluded.
