Get Active in Ebbsfleet Summer Treasure Hunt 2019

16 July 2019

Are you ready for a new 6-week challenge?

We have got a great challenge for you over the school holidays this summer. It will take place between 29th July and 8th September.  Take a stroll with your children with the BetterPoints app to find lots of virtual treasure so you can win some fantastic prizes. 

The Storyline...

A giant wave has crashed into 5 local parks leaving a trail of colourful beachy items, can you find them?
Earn BetterTickets for each item found to win great prizes, make sure to avoid Sneaky Sammy Seagull



Please note: This challenge works most effectively with active tracking. If you are currently using automatic tracking, please make sure to manually click the play button and start a walk. When you are finished, press 'complete.'

Participating parks:

Central Park - Dartford

Woodlands Park - Gravesend

Swanscombe Heritage Park - Swanscombe

Swanley Park - Swanley

As you walk around these parks as a family you can discover the virtual treasure which will earn you special BetterTickets.  Each ticket earned will give you one entry into our prize draws.

 We're giving away up to £500 worth of prizes at the end of the hunt, as follows:

  • 6 x £15 Showcase Cinema Cards
  • 6 x £15 National Book Tokens
  • 6 x £15 Pizza Hut e-Vouchers
  • 6 x £15 Entertainer e-Vouchers

Plus 1 grand prize to be awarded on the 16th September for one family:

  • National Trust Family Membership for a year (worth £120) or Eurostar vouchers (worth £140)

The virtual treasure will pop up from 29th July, but in the meantime why not take a walk in any of your local parks with your family? You can earn BetterPoints  for traveling within the Get Active in Ebbsfleet rewards zone. Just check your challenges area to see which rewards are available to you.
