A summer at camp couldn't be complete without a good, old-fashioned scavenger hunt, could it? At Al-Waha, we honored the scavenger hunt tradition, but added a few special twists. For example, all of the clues were written in a code and corresponded with Arabic letters. After deciphering the code, villagers had to read and understand the Arabic words, then run to the next location. At some locations, the clues were hidden very well and took a lot of effort to find. Other stations required villagers to perform a task, such as playing soccer or musical chairs, in order to earn their next clue. The game stretched into the night before we crowned the winning team.
