Search Parties

Tomfooleryasaurus Search Parties challenge youth to play outside, learn about local adventure opportunities and put down the electronic devices. Search parties are perfect for families, groups of friends and individuals of all ages that have a thirst for adventure.

Birth and History of Tomfooleryasaurus

The Tomfooleryasaurus was born on the Buckeye Trail in Southeast Ohio when Tom Helbig and Sebastian Kraus met during Tom’s 2017 hike of Ohio’s 1,400 mile long distance trail. Sebastian and his family hosted Tom for several days during the hike.

During a coloring session with the six year old critter, the adventurous duo created the Tomfooleryasaurus.


It is a hybrid dinosaur and playful adventurer creation now used to encourage youth to Live Active, Laugh More and Inspire All.



To find out how to continue the Search Party fun year round with custom search parties for your group, contact Tom Helbig at
