Treasure Hunts

Treasure hunts have proven to be an exciting opportunity for any corporate or retail team. Many corporations, restaurants, retail stores, and more have participated in these fun and educational events.

A treasure hunt game usually includes a variety of elements. For instance, clues may need to be deciphered in order to pinpoint a location. Another activity that may take place during a treasure hunt is that of answering some quiz or trivia questions. Right answers will score more points for any team.

Another activity that sometimes takes place during a treasure hunt is the completion of a photo assignment. This is one thing that will further help a team score points and solve the treasure mystery.

It may also be necessary for a team to decide what it needs to help them better complete the treasure hunt tasks set before them. Therefore, they will often need to complete a shopping list.

Treasure hunts are easy to plan and they can take place almost anywhere. In fact, some organizations may prefer just to have these events take place right on the premises (the employer's property). Professional activity planners can help an employer set up this event.

Usually some of the items needed for a treasure hunt activity include a local survey map, instant camera, clues written out, and trivia questions. These can be made-up or they can be derived from any activity book or board game.

A typical day for a group participating in treasure hunts usually starts with an event briefing. This is during when the rules and regulations as well as game play instructions are given. Then, the treasure hunt would usually start.

There may then be a break for lunch. Sometimes prizes are given out before or during lunch to the winners of each completed treasure hunt mission-or to the team with the most points.

After lunch there may be an evening treasure hunt briefing if a new game is played. During this briefing may include tips on how to improve each team's overall play. This will further help each team succeed.

The prizes for winning a treasure event do not have to be very extravagant. Sample prizes that could be given to a winning team (or individual winners) usually are a bottle of champagne, dinner gift certificates, or a small amount of cash.

Treasure hunt days are probably one of the most economical of all events to place, as well as the most versatile. Likewise, these games can be played by a group of any size. Also, these events generally do not cost that much money.

Treasure hunts are ideal for many corporate or employer occasions. For instance, they could take place during an employee picnic, Christmas party, or incentive trip. These particular activity days sometimes occur during motivational conferences for managers as well.

The purpose of treasure hunt games is to foster communication and togetherness amongst a group of employees. Furthermore, this type of game also helps draw out the strengths of individual employees. This will allow management of a particular place of employment to see who is the most organized, the most creative, the most articulate, and who is the best listener.Bio for Treasure Hunts: John Tarr is a copywriter for Stag Party Weekend across Europe.

Frequently Asked Questions...

How do I get involved in team sports with no sports background?

I'm a 20 year old guy that never got involved in team sports as a kid. I'd like to get into soccer or rugby or something, but (a) I have no background in them and (b) I'm gay and find that most men's sports team are hostile towards queers. My friends aren't interested in them and I...don't know where to start. (Note: I live in a reasonably sized city.) Any suggestions on how to go about doing that?

Best Answer...


Just pick one and do it. There are many team sports that have leagues for beginners. I use to do soccer up to jr.highschool so I would vote for that one but I have watch some of the world rugby championships and gotta say I like the sport. As for being gay I really can't give advice since I am not gay. I have a few buddies and co-workers who are but that does not give me the right to say I know what it is like to be in your shoes. But if you want to get into a team sport do it. I think if you don't try it you will regret it. If in the end it does not work for you look into non team sports like running, swimming cycling. I am a triathlete and enjoy being competitive in a non team atmosphere.

Good luck
