Teen Lounge: Letterbox Hunt! (Letterboxing Series)

Tuesday, September 4, 2012  
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Letterboxing is a type of treasure hunt/hiking activity involving hidden boxes, journals and rubber stamps. Each person needs his or her own personal rubber stamp (called a signature stamp) to leave his/her mark on the letterbox's journal. In return you take an image of the box's stamp for your own journal. It's like treasure that is art and proof of your find.

Today let's use our skills to create our own hunts and possibly LOOK for some! Let's put those stamps and journals to use!
