A TREASURE HUNT: THE WAY YOU NEED IT!

Tired of cookie-cutter team building scavenger hunts? Shooting Stars is a totally customizable exercise perfect for your group’s needs and sensibilities. Adjustable to any time, place and theme, this high-energy indoor or outdoor game combines the best of innovative challenge with professionally-led experiential team building.

Our facilitator will lead your group in a dynamic and unforgettable activity that engages every member 100%. Shooting Stars encourages full participation, regardless of your group size. That’s right, from 20 to 200, this is one treasure hunt-style event that brings everyone together!

FLEXIBLE AND FUN

The key to the Shooting Stars program is an innovative system that allows participants to invest their own imagination and fun into the game. This is not your standard set of ‘clues’. Shooting Stars is On-Demand because your group can help create the experience they will find most rewarding. The event starts with ‘basic challenges’ and gives the teams many ways to add on bonuses and customize solutions to be as creative as possible.

OUT-INNOVATE THE COMPETITION!

By incorporating twists and turns into a fast-paced treasure hunt format, teams have many options to think outside the box and deliver surprising (and often humorous) results. Shooting Stars allows teams to use cameras, props and some unexpected strategy to create a memorable bonding experience.

JUST WHAT YOU DEMAND

Your organization can also help mold the event into one that accurately promotes the desired culture, attitude and philosophy that’s completely individual to your needs.

ENDLESS OPPORTUNITY

After warmups and icebreakers, your group will be introduced to the Shooting Stars program and given free reign to explore strategic options. There are countless ways for teams to work together and create new opportunities with the flexible choices available within the activity. This is a treasure hunt that actively promotes brainstorming and values every voice. Team members can contribute as much as they wish (and they will want to!) to achieve great results for their team and your group.
Minimum/Maximum Group Size: 20-200 (divided into teams of 6-10)
Program Length: 3 hours approximately
Location: This program is extremely flexible and can be done indoors, outdoors, in any conference room, meeting space or function room . Perfect for urban suburban or even rural areas.
