South Shore Reindeer Quest

Snap a selfie with your favorite deer and post to #SSreindeerquest to be entered to win a fun prize!

Grab your hiking boots, snow shoes, or cross-country skis and get the family outside for a special South Shore Reindeer Quest! The North Pole reindeer are taking a well-earned, post-holiday vacation at five beautiful South Shore Trustees properties this winter. This self-guided scavenger hunt encourages visitors to scour the trails for herds of handmade, wooden reindeer at World’s End, Whitney & Thayer Woods and Weir River Farm in Hingham, the Norris Reservation in Norwell, and Two-Mile Farm in Marshfield.

Our reindeer are lovingly crafted by 140 Girl and Boy Scouts representing 15 troops from Hingham, Cohasset, Norwell,  and Scituate, and are hidden along the trails. Each reindeer has a special personality, which visitors can discover by scanning a QR code with the camera on their phone. Want to know what flavor of ice cream reindeer like best, or what their favorite reindeer game is? Find each deer and scan their codes to find out.

Along the way, snap a selfie with your favorite deer and post to #SSreindeerquest to be entered to win a fun prize!

The Trustees would like to thank our scouting friends for their help bringing safe, outdoor adventures to everyone on the South Shore.
