This series of letterboxes was placed for a Canada Day Treasure Hunt organized by Miss Ladybug and Mrs GeoOdyssey. It was so much fun! The first place team returned with filled passport and completed tasks in one hour sixteen minutes.

All letterboxes are placed in NW or central NE Calgary and are accessible 24/7. Each is in a sandwich sized Lock n Lock and contains a stamp, ink pad, pen and logbook but we recommend you bring your own pen and inkpads just in case (our ink pads are red, brown, black, and rainbow). Happy Hunting!

To find the general location:
• Write the lyrics to O Canada
• Number the words (i.e: Oh1 Canada2 our3 home4 etc)
• Write the first letter of the word on the corresponding line, if the number appears in brackets, write the last letter of that word on the line
• Congratulations – you know where you’re going.
