A team building activity that people can participate in when in the Washington DC area is the very unique Adventure Treasure Hunt hosted by Philly Hops Corporate Team Building. The Amazing Adventure treasure hunt gets team members to use their imagination to the fullest – because they will be searching for the creature that lives in their most fertile imaginations. It is such a mysterious creature that it has neither been written about nor has it been photographed. It is more mysterious than the Loch Ness Monster “Nessie” or Big Foot and exists only in rumors and whispers.
Members of the team building group are then to search for this creature in the wilds, which in Washington DC would involve searching the streets next to the famous historical buildings. The creature is created from the team members’ definition. They define it by answering questions, using photography, audio recording devices and sketching.
This adventure can have 5 to 10 participating groups and lasts about 4 hours. The teams will meet at a specified place after they have been out on their search and will now attempt to outdo one another on the depth of the mystery of their creature. Each group will use all the evidence they have gathered in profiling their mystery creature. It is recommended that this adventure be done in a lively commercial area. The various teams participating in this treasure hunt also have a ball in the process of trying to outdo each other.
Philly Hops Team Building adventures put a new twist on a classic game loved by all. Nothing promotes unity like a Scavenger Hunt. These scavenger hunts also help develop skills such as never giving up by overcoming beliefs in things that limit them. Once the teams come back together, they use highly sought after presentation skills to demonstrate their findings to the group. Another added benefit of the hunts is the use of time management skills. They only have a few hours to answer the clues that will lead them to their creature. Philly Hops takes team building into a whole new direction. It is sure to be an event that your teams won’t forget.
