Baton Rouge General Brings Back Father-Daughter City-wide Scavenger Hunt

BATON ROUGE, La.-- Baton Rouge General will host “The Big Adventure,” a city-wide father-daughter scavenger hunt, on March 27 at 2 p.m., gathering dads and daughters to safely compete in a scavenger hunt against other father-daughter teams from the comfort of their own vehicles. In its second year, “The Big Adventure” will have more stops and activities, as well as a wrap party to bring all the teams together to celebrate at the end of the scavenger hunt.

“Our traditional father-daughter event was altered last year due to the pandemic, and now in its place, this scavenger hunt has turned into a new tradition for the community, where fathers and daughters work together as a team, visiting businesses and landmarks around Baton Rouge to earn points,” said Erik Showalter, president of the Baton Rouge General Foundation. “This event is a great opportunity for families to make memories and engage with new places around our city, all while supporting Baton Rouge General’s patients and care teams.”

From the steps of the State Capitol to the bays of Top Golf, the scavenger hunt will take participants across the Greater Baton Rouge area. Using the Goosechase app, participants earn points by completing activities and snapping photos at different stops. Adding to the fun, after the scavenger hunt, teams are invited to an outdoor wrap party at BRG’s Bluebonnet campus from 4-5:30 p.m. The party will include food trucks, music, and more. At the end of the wrap party, prizes will be awarded to the top three teams, as well as the top dad-daughter duos.

Participants can get a head start on accumulating points by hosting at-home fundraisers like bake sales or lemonade stands in advance of The Big Adventure. Each dollar raised adds 1 point to the team total. Parents can get some great ideas in our Kid-Friendly Fundraising Guide. Funds raised through the event will touch the lives of many patients and families treated at Baton Rouge General.

Before the scavenger hunt, participants will pick up their team’s Adventure Packet at one of two drive-through pick up events. Donations from at-home fundraisers can be turned in at packet pick-up. The packet will include:

  • Scavenger hunt information
  • Drawstring travel bag
  • Car decorating kit- best decorated car will receive a trophy!
  • BRG car decal

Registration for single tickets ($35/each) and team packages is open. For more information, visit or contact
