National Youth Week

Museum Renegade Race

Thursday, May 3rd from 5:30 - 7:30 PM

Cost to Participate: Free (donations always welcome)

In partnership with National Youth Week, the Peterborough Museum & Archives is offering this free event for youth! The Museum Renegade Race will be a photographic scavenger hunt for teams of 3-5. Each team will be given a list of tasks to complete within an hour. Each task will require the use of a smartphone or iPhone with a working camera for taking photographs. Elements of the race may take place outdoors, dependent on the weather, so dress appropriately. Once complete, a panel of judges will award points for each photo taken. Points will be awarded based on creativity, clarity, and originality. The team with the most points will be our winners!

What is National Youth Week anyway?

National Youth Week is May 1st - 7th every year, and is a week dedicated to the celebration of youth and their active participation in their community. Whether it is recreation, drama, sport, dance, civic engagement, art, volunteerism or leadership, everyday young people are involved in meaningful activities during their discretionary time. National Youth Week is a time to honour their involvement!
