Frequently Asked Questions / FIELD DAY

Can children participate in Field Day?

Children may participate in Field Day at no charge if they are accompanied by parent or guardian. However, please note that t-shirts and lunch will be included only for the two registered adult team members. To inquire about purchasing additional meals or t-shirts, email

Where does the scavenger hunt begin and end?

You can start from anywhere! After registration we will provide a general radius recommended for starting based on the route. 

Does the route follow a specific order?

Once registrants access the event app, event tasks or “challenges” are grouped by area. These tasks may be completed at random.

How does the app work?

Once registered, each team will download the event app to one team member’s phone and create an account. We will send an event JOIN CODE prior to May 8th, giving teams access to the scavenger hunt. However, event “challenges” will not appear on the app until May 8th at 11:00AM.

Will food be provided?

Yes! To maintain social distancing, lunch will be provided via food truck at Dallas Afterschool from 11:00AM to 2:00PM. Participants may stopy by at anytime during the event. A vegetarian option will be available.

Are masks required?

Yes, we want our participants to stay safe! Although this is a socially-distanced and partially virtual event, masks are required on May 8th. To make it more fun, we are offering a prize for BEST TEAM MASKS!

How does team fundraising work?

Teams have the option to raise additional funds for Dallas Afterschool so we may continue to ensure EVERY CHILD in Dallas has the opportunity to succeed. You may create and customize a fundraising page (including goal) and send to your network.

We will be awarding a special prize for the best overall fundraiser!

Do I have to register for Field Day to be a fundraiser?

No! Individuals are not required to participate in the scavenger hunt in order to create a fundraising page (and you are still eligible for the best overall fundraiser prize).  Create a fundraising page
