Elves at Hay House Scavenger Hunt

December 1-23, 2020
Hay House
934 Georgia Avenue
Macon, GA 31201

Find the elves at Hay House! Children ages 5-12 are invited to participate in this family friendly scavenger hunt during a regular tour of the Palace of the South.

Fifteen elves will be placed in various rooms throughout the house, and each child will be invited to find them with the help of a special keepsake Scavenger Hunt Map. Every week, the Hay House will, via Facebook and Instagram, provide hints on where the elves may be spotted. Elves will be labeled alphabetically, and the Hay House rooms will be numbered (not every room at Hay House will have an elf).

At the start of the guided tour, each child will be provided a special keepsake Scavenger Hunt Map, a Scorecard and Entry Form, and a pencil. At the end of the guided tour/hunt, each child will present their Scorecard and Entry Form to their tour guide for review. If they have found and correctly located by room at least 12 of the 15 elves, they will receive an “I Found the Elves at Hay House” special sticker for their keepsake Scavenger Hunt Map, and their Scorecard and Entry Form will be deposited into the Elf Prize Drawing Box. The Scavenger Hunt Map will be the child’s take-home gift to remember their adventure, and each child will receive a goody bag with elf hunt treasures.


The Elves at Hay House Scavenger Hunt is included in the price of a regular guided tour in December. Adults $13, Military and Seniors (65+) $12, Students (including children ages 5 to 12) $9, children under 5 are free. The admission charge for children ages 5-12 includes the Scavenger Hunt materials and a goody bag.
