The Adventure Passport is a self-guided scavenger hunt contest that steers participants off-the-beaten-track in Bruce County. Unique locations across the county are chosen to be “Passport Stops” from May 1st until October 31st every year.

Each year, 150,000 copies of the Adventure Passport are printed.

Clues on the Passport help participants find the Stops, where they’ll also locate a unique hole-punch to mark their Passport. A minimum of seven of the twelve Stops must be completed in order to be eligible for a free t-shirt and the Grand Prize draw in November (learn how to play here).

The Adventure Passport was started in 2005 and has a strong, loyal following; to date, there have been more than 71,000 participants.
