Emek Refaim, the Valley of Ghosts, is the heart of the German Colony. This is often referred to by locals as ‘Hamoshava which is Hebrew for ‘the Colony’.  The neighborhood has a rich history dating back to the late 19th century. On your Dash in the Valley of Ghosts, you will discover the story of the founders of the colony! The Dash in the Valley of the Ghosts is great for corporate groups, families, for youth, for student and adult groups, for synagogue missions and Bar/Bat Mitzvah groups as a classic scaventure.

How does a ScaVentures Dash work?

  1. Each group is divided into teams.
  2. Each team needs one smart phone
  3. Each team will receive a pack that includes maps, stickers, information sheets, notepads, pencils, picture packs and more.
  4. Each person on the team has a role. There is a leader, detective, note keeper, navigator, historian, photographer, and more.
  5. Using the pack you received and the link you will receive from us, the above team members will navigate from the first station to the last station. At each station, the historian will relay the story, the team leader will engage the team with the missions, and the detective will look for pictures. Each team member will play his/her role to complete the missions and to solve the mystery of the picture pack before moving on to the next station!
  6. Teams compete against each other to reach the final station in the best time and with the right answers!
  7. When all the teams have reached the final station, the game leader will sum up the experience and prizes will be awarded to winning teams.
