I need help planning a scavenger hunt for five 13 year old boys. I'd say they are all aspiring Metafilter members - they fit the profile!

One of the things I love about Metafilter is the posts that make me a better dad/uncle. Next week I am planning a scavenger hunt for my son's 13th birthday. We live on a rural island, nearby ocean beaches and forests and a lake. The kids have bikes, they are okay being in the woods alone and it's a virtual playground.
They are all gamers who also love spending time outside. I'd love some ideas for a collaborative hunt that would challenge them and let them rip around the island for a bit with a good reward at the end. I'd rather not split them into teams, so it needs to be something that works well with five guys figuring stuff out together.
And for some reason I'm flummoxed. I need some ideas. If you had all this at your fingertips, where would you start?
