There are a variety of ways to handle scavenger hunts for corporate teambuilding. Each are effective and have the ability to work on a variety of skills. Working together finding answers to a variety of questions allows employees to distribute responsibility and work on time management along with other skillsets.
The standard scavenger hunt has a variety of clues that the members of the group have to work through in a set amount of time. The clues may be to find items placed by the facilitators, to find elements from the operations area, or to interpret clues that may be puns or cryptic in some way.
The GPS scavenger hunt uses the latest technology to bring team members to a location to visualize something. The group then pieces together the clues together towards some greater purpose.
The photo hunt is to find locations or places based on clues and then take requested photos. The photos are then able to be shared either at an awards assembly or on social media after the event.
The murder or spy hunt has facilitators placed in the middle of the operations zone. You locate the facilitators after the clues are answered and based on your performance, you ask them questions to achieve your spy goals or to determine the culprit.
Scavenger hunts can be conducted inside various locations, or outside. The dangers, of course, are that an indoor adventure or on private property can cause problems with the owners of that property. Having 100 people run inside of a store and not buying anything can be a problem. The last thing that a facilitator wants is for all the participants to be arrested or thrown out of the location.
Also, weather can be an issue. A few companies have bad-weather options that they can make available for their destination scavenger hunts.
Having an alternative should be important, otherwise the whole event might have to be called due to rain. After all, if you are performing an event at a destination, you can't have a rain check because people would go back home before the weather might change.
