QR Code Scavenger Hunt

Scan QR codes with your phone's camera to play.

It's a fun way to implement a team-building game, city scavenger hunt, employee onboarding, and much more.

How Does QR Code Scavenger Hunt Work?

QR Code scavenger hunts are fantastic because you only need your phone’s camera to play. No QR code scanner app!
