A Fun Scavenger Hunt, Showcasing the Best of BC

Receive an envelope full of questions and challenges that will encourage collaboration and creativity. Select missions that utilize your team's skills to maximize point potential. Start with easier challenges and build momentum for the more difficult high point exploits. The Scavenger Hunt is best completed in teams of 8-10 people. Each Scavenger hunt ends with a full group debrief announcing which team is to be crowned the Grouse Mountain champions! Suitable for all fitness levels.

Program Objectives

  • To encourage healthy competition to help achieve best performance.
  • To develop or refine listening, collaboration and problem solving skills
  • To have fun, laugh, play and explore the Mountain

Activity Summary

Each team receives a set of clues/challenges, and the team must decide how to best address the set of clues. From deductive reasoning to physical exertion; persuasive abilities to spacial relations, the challenges rely upon a broad skill set and the ability to engage the group for optimal results.

The Scavenger Hunt is time limited, encouraging groups to work under pressure and embrace the fun. A facilitator will be present to provide instruction and provide assistance where required.

And while the winning team will be showered with accolades at the post Hunt debrief, the group discussion about process, skills, learnings and finding the humor is the real prize.
