Are you looking to spice up your next teambuilding event? Why not add a dash of culture to the mix. Book your group a scavenger hunt like no other with questions created for nimble thinking, teamwork, and leading to great destinations while also providing team bonus challenges to test their creative thinking.
Watson Adventures is able to accommodate a wide range of attendees. “Our average group is 40 - 50, but our largest group was upwards of 600,” Jacobs recounted, “One of our strengths is handling large and diverse groups.”
Each group is assigned a ‘Hunt Host’ to help with rules, directions, and bonus challenges. Some hunts require paper while others are accessible from an app, with hunts usually lasting 90 minutes to two hours. Jacobs suggests booking your group at least one month in advance and had tips for planners looking for an almost all-inclusive teambuilding event; Sign up, Show up, Enjoy the adventure.
1. Know your group - Are they competitive, creative, analytical? Knowing your attendees will help you, with help from the Watson team, design a hunt that will appeal to your group.
2. Have a rain plan! - Walking a new city is a great experience, but if the weather isn't going to cooperate make sure you and your attendees are either prepared for heat, rain, or snow, or have a back up plan. You can always opt for an Art Museum Hunt that will keep you out of the elements no matter the time of year.
3. Destination details - Where will your attendees be coming from when they arrive for the teambuilder and what is on the agenda for after? Do they need a fun event to decompress after a morning of meetings or are you working to pump them up before a round of meetings? Consider a scavenger hunt that leads your group to a venue for food and drink after a day of events.
The ‘Hunt’ experience will introduce your attendees to new locations - often overlooked, while fostering teamwork in a fun and dynamic way. Adventure is out there and this could be the activity you have been waiting for.
