Topics: sports & recreation

A 'Quest' is a 150-year-old English tradition that has been transplanted to Vermont by an organization called Vital Communities. Participants follow clues that are found in a book titled Valley Quest, which takes them on 89 different treasure hunts across Vermont and New Hampshire. Each quest in the book contains riddle-like clues and maps for the hunt. The quests are designed to teach adults and children about the natural and cultural history of the communities they live in. At the end of each quest the participants find a treasure chest containing a journal for the questors to sign and leave messages in, a stamp with which to stamp their quest books, and more information about the community.
