Camp Crowded Fire

Thank you to everyone who has signed up to play in Crowded Fire’s third annual scavenger hunt! Registration is now closed, but you can follow along on social media with #CampCrowdedFire, or donate to support one of the teams.



  • Find an item on the list!

  • Share proof of that item, using the item number, through your team’s JotForm (check your email for the link).

    • That proof can be whatever feels right: screen capture, photo, video — write a sentence, or an essay if it calls to you!

    • The JotForm will be the portal for documentation, with easy uploading options.

  • For everything, feel free to also post to social media: tag @crowdedfire and #CampCrowdedFire! Some of the items offer extra points for social sharing.



  • Runner — Abby Pañares
  • Kitty Cadets — Julie McCormick
  • Sparky Malarkey — Bethany Herron
  • Katy’s Team — Katy Lim
  • Tipsy Timbers — Lily Yang
  • Team S’mores — Kerstin Fermin
  • Viva Humanity – Emily Rosenthal

Donate to show some love for these scavenger hunters, and to get an invitation to the post-hunt celebration on July 17th at 4pm!
