About The Passport To Summer Fun

The Passport to Summer Fun program organized by the City of Aurora runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day.  

The Passport to Fun is an adventure scavenger hunt that takes you to various nature centers, parks, and public art displays.  We think this program is a great idea!  You may discover a new place right in your neighborhood.  

There is an incentive to participate in the program.  The City of Aurora invites you to complete at least ten tasks to automatically win a prize pack, and be entered into a grand prize drawing.  

About The App Scavify

The adventure scavenger hunt is through the Scavify app.  The app is free on both the Google Play and Apple Store.  We were able to download it easily onto our Android device.  The signup process asked us to create our user name.  The next step was to link up to the Passport to Summer Fun program.  We clicked on the magnifying glass and typed in “Aurora”  the Aurora Passport To Summer Fun program came up right away.

Once you are in the app, you can see the challenges.  We did a GPS challenge.  It was very easy, we clicked check-in then save.
