Easter Egg Hunt

April 3, 2021

GNCS is currently working on COVID-safe alternatives for our annual Easter Egg Hunt. We are hard at work brainstorming ways we can share in the joy of the Easter season and the thrill of an Easter egg hunt and stay safe at the same time. Check back soon for exciting news!


Changes to the following old schedule of events are being planned:

GNCS hosts two different Easter Egg Hunt times. Please purchase tickets for children attending only – adults are free. This event is open to the greater Glenview community. We offer a discounted price to church and school families when tickets are purchased in advance. Tickets are $10 for the general public and $5 for church and school families in advance.

9:00 am Toddling Tots Easter Egg Hunt:

For 1 – 4 years old. This early egg hunt was created to meet the needs of our younger hunters in training, to make it less overwhelming and enjoyable for parents and young ones. The Toddling Tots Hunt is done with EMPTY EGGS to avoid any choking hazards, and each child can turn in his or her LOT of collected eggs for ONE single toy. Over 1,000 eggs are hidden in a separate field in front of the school. Families will gather in the courtyard where they can meet and take photos with the Easter Bunny! Snacks are included. Kids ages 1 – 4 are not required to come to this hunt, they can opt into the 10:30 am hunt – but please purchase the correct ticket.

10:30 am Traditional Easter Egg Hunt:

For 1 – 14 years old. All eggs will be empty. Turn in your lot of eggs for a generous goody bag, containing more candy per person than ever before! Over 8,000 eggs are hidden on 15 acres of the school’s campus (the inside circle). Grand Prize Golden eggs are hidden along with the rest of the eggs that can be turned in for prizes. A raffle will be held and a magician will be on hand to give a spectacular show! Snacks are included!

Please arrive early to get checked in. New this year: YOU MAY BRING YOUR OWN EASTER BASKETS. We will also have hunting bags on hand if you choose not to bring your own.
