START Children’s Center, Inc. Presents Fall Family Fun Scavenger Hunt and Trivia Search



Looking for something fun and exciting to do this fall?  START’s Fall Family Fun is a hauntingly, safely social distancing fun day out with family and friends.

Your $10.00 entry fee supports START Children’s Center, Inc. in its commitment to make a difference for children, their families and the community.   When we receive your registration information, you will be sent an email with the instructions and forms to participate in the Scavenger Hunt and Trivia Search, and word-puzzles.

There are clues for the scavenger hunt locations as well as questions and hints for the trivia search and 2 word-puzzles for all ages that highlight buildings, landmarks, cemeteries and ghostly places in and around Troy and Rensselaer County. 

Pick a day and gather family and friends to form a team and take a drive, using the clues provided on the Scavenger Hunt Form to find the locations.  Once you find the location, take a picture with a member of your team visible in the photo. Completed forms should be emailed to [email protected] by 5:00 PM Friday, November 13th and will be entered into a drawing for Market 32/Price Chopper and Walmart gift certificates.

Fall Family Fun helps support START Children’s Center, Inc., a non-profit agency designed to help reduce trauma to children who are victims of sexual or physical abuse, human trafficking, or a witness to violence or crime, in its commitment to make a difference for children, their families and our community.   

NOTE: Please be sure to maintain social distancing and wear face masks on your hunt and when taking photos! 

Happy sleuthing!
