  • Return to Central Wharf at 4pm to be considered for a prize, collect your swag bag, then enjoy the after party!
  • Each trivia question will lead to a specific location, where you can earn points for the game by either checking in or taking a photo.
  • Some challenges will offer a bonus Instagram contest, where the best photo earns you an additional prize.
  • There will be bonus scavenger hunt clues that will be posted by @bostonypa, giving you the opportunity for more points.  Be sure to follow us on Instagram, twitter, and like our Facebook page! 
  • We will be tracking everyone's progress back at Central Wharf.  In order to be counted, everything posted on social media must include the hashtag #BYPAHunt

Rules to make this FUN and FAIR:
  • Scavenger Hunt participants can pick up packets beginning at 12pm, point accumulation starts at 1pm, the game ends at 4pm.
  • Each person participating must be registered. This makes it fair, and ensures that no location runs out of supplies.  Anyone playing with an unregistered person will be disqualified.
  • Event will be held rain or shine.
  • Any questions can be emailed to
Interested In playing as a team?  

Teams are a great way for friends to have fun together and for those that work together to have a fun team building activity.  Pairs and small groups can play together - everyone just needs to buy an ticket, and on game day get started together.  

If you are planning for a group and need help organizing:

Captains: purchase a ticket, and then email us the name your team. It could be the name of your company, something Bostonian, something humorous, anything you want, as long as it doesn't contain something inappropriate.  Within 24 hours, your team will be set up ( you will get a confirmation email from us), and you can instruct teammates to go to the registration page and purchase an "Individual" ticket.  There they will indicate "yes" to playing on a team, and select your team name from the drop down menu. 

Decide later that you want to play as a team? See below


Can I play on my own?  Absolutely. Just buy an individual ticket.

If I want to spend the day with friends, but not compete as a group, can I do that?  Of course.  You just need to all buy individual tickets. 
Can I join a team later after buying a ticket? Can we form a team after buying tickets?  Absolutely. Small groups can play together without formally organizing a team.  If you need help organizing, let us know the name of your group or team and we can help you keep track of sign ups.  
How many grand prizes are there? There is one grand prize.  It will be awarded to the individual or team with the most points.  Regardless of if an individual wins, a 2 person pair wins, a 3 person group wins, or a 10 person team wins, its the same prize.  We have tiebreakers ready to go.  Playing as a group doesn't mean you will have better odds, but it could mean you'll have more fun.
How do you decide who wins the Instagram challenges?  Our Board members will be watching throughout the day, and will share their opinion with our director of social media.  Photos will be judged on creativity, how great of a shot you capture, and accuracy of location. 
How old do I need to be to play?   You must be over 18 to play.  You must be 21+ to purchase alcohol at the after party.  No exceptions. 

How do I include an item in your swag bags? Email  Tell us about who you are, what you want to include, and why our players will love to receive it.

Capacity is limited, event is held rain or shine.  Tickets can be transfered to a different attendee, however no refunds after 5/25/17.

Boston Young Professionals Association

If you are new to Boston or just looking to meet new friends or professional contacts, BYPA events are a great place to meet people. You will not feel out of place if you come alone - most people do! Our events include small, intimate special-interest gatherings (the best of our events for meeting new people) and huge, general social extravaganzas (best for seeing those BYPA members you already know!) In organizing these events, we aim to give busy young Bostonians the opportunity to try a variety of activities with their fellow young professionals without having to research and plan the activities themselves. We also strive to maintain our number one priority: creating a community for the young professional in Boston.

BostonYPA provides the finest in entertainment, networking and professional development opportunities geared towards young professionals. Anyone who feels "young at heart" is welcome, however the majority of our attendees are between 21 and 40.

If you purchase a ticket to an event and are no longer able to attend, kindly email us 72 hours before the event begins so that we may adjust staffing and supplies.  After that time period, please expect refund requests made before the event begins to be met with a credit towards a future event with BostonYPA. Please see event descriptions for exceptions.
