Duneland YMCA Rocks: A scavenger hunt for families

Back To Front Page


Take your family on an exciting adventure to find local “treasures” between now and August 7. Fifty rocks have been hidden in area parks: Lakeland Park in Burns Harbor; Hawthorne Park in Porter, Coffee Creek Park & Trail in Chesterton, Dogwood Park, Chesterton, and Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve. The Rocks have been designed and painted by children attending Duneland Y Summer Camp Shorwau. On the back of the rocks, discover directions explaining what to do when found.

One rock per family please. Attached to each rock will be a numbered card, keep this card to claim a prize. Participants may keep the rock they find to add to their own landscaping, or re-place it around the park to brighten up the community.

If some rocks remain unfound during the week of Aug. 1-7, helpful hints will be posted on the Duneland Family YMCA Facebook page. Prizes will be announced on August 8. Winners do not need to be present to claim their prize, just bring the ticket to the Duneland Family YMCA front desk by August 7.

“We hope this will be a fun way to explore our wonderful community with your family,” said Deborah Kurz, project coordinator. “Good luck, and happy hunting!”

For information email Deborah Kurz at or call the Y at 926-4204. The YMCA’s mission is youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
