Gather a group of friends for a little fun in the sun with a self-guided scavenger hunt throughout Historic Oakland Cemetery!

The Spring Scramble will take place on Thursday, April 6 through Sunday, April 9. No reservations are required to participate, simply purchase your Spring Scramble packet (1 per team) at the Visitors Center & Museum Shop (open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the week, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the weekend) and follow cryptic clues to solve riddles. 

Looking for a Spring Break activity for the whole family? We will also offer a kid-friendly scavenger hunt for sale. Just ask for the Junior Spring Scramble packet at the Visitors Center & Museum Shop.

The Spring Scramble and Junior Spring Scramble packets include one (1) self-guided tour map ($5 value) that can be used on return visits. All proceeds from the Spring Scramble benefit Historic Oakland Foundation’s mission to preserve, restore, enhance, and share Oakland Cemetery. Spring Scramble packets can only be purchased April 6-9.

Teams who get all the answers correct will be entered into a drawing for select prizes. To be eligible to win, completed answer sheets must be returned to the Visitors Center by 8 p.m. on Sunday, April 9. Answer sheets can also be scanned an e-mailed by 10 p.m. on April 9.
