Treasure Hunt Team Building with The Leaders Institute ®
Do you need a treasure hunt team building activity? The Camaraderie Quest team treasure hunt is not your ordinary scavenger hunt. It is a brainy, challenging, high-tech adventure that is tailor-made to your group and location every single time. First, participant groups are each assigned an iPad that gives them challenges to solve and items to discover. Then the groups use the iPads to record their successes on photos and video recordings.
Finally, the iPads are collected, and each group is scored based on their results. The custom scavenger hunts take teamwork, problem-solving, and a little speed. But at the conclusion of the quest, you’ll see smiles on each of the faces of your team!

Our Outdoor Hunts are Tailored To You
Every quest is custom-tailored to your group and location. You are in total control of the time frame of the event. Participants will engage both your minds and bodies while working together to solve puzzles.
This is a sample agenda:
- Begin with a high energy ice breaker that divides your team into small groups and explains the ground rules.
- Each team is given an iPad to access the clues and challenges and record their progress.
- Groups access a series of clues and challenges using their iPad.
- Challenges are related to your company, the location in which the event is being held, and the area around them. It is a combination of a race, a walking tour, and a crossword puzzle.
- Debrief and Application Discussion: After, the groups unite to view videos of the event and the final scores are revealed.
- You receive a custom slideshow of the event to re-live the fun for posterity!
Team Scavenger Hunt with a Philanthropic Twist
Kid Quest: Items collected in the hunt are each worth monetary value. Donations increase as they get more items. Total value collected is donated to Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Make-A-Wish, a Children’s Hospital, or a similar children’s charity. This twist at the end leaves your group with a feel-good high that they were able to help a young person.
Hero Quest: Points collected in the hunt are each worth monetary value. Donations increase as they get more items. At the end of the event, the total value is donated to the USO or other charity to benefit soldiers who are deployed overseas. Having a patriotic twist is a great way to give back to those men and women fighting for our freedom.
Camaraderie Quest events are designed to fit a 2.5-hour time frame. Being composed of a short introduction, two 45-minute quests, and a 30-minute debrief and slideshow. We can shorten it to a little under two hours by eliminating a single quest. You can also extend to a half-day, full-day, or two-day workshop by adding teachings like Creating a Team Culture activity.
* All activities in this event are low impact.
The day was so fun! Thank you to our leader Chris who communicated well and organized a great quest! My office raved about how creative and enjoyable our annual event went and can't wait until next year. What a success! Thank you!
As the organizer for our team outing, I wasn’t sure how our employees would feel about the event. Would they feel silly or childish? So I went in to the day with some uncertainty. That worry, was unfounded. I heard nothing but laughter and praises from our group. I saw what was a somewhat hesitant team do a one eighty and turn into bonded, loyal team players. Thank you Doug and the Leader’s Institute for giving us the opportunity that we would have never have accomplished inside the walls of our office. I, myself, came through the exercise with the following thoughts: Sometimes were are so focused on the task that we forget to look at the big picture and we miss out. Thank you for giving me a new perspective and providing me with an opportunity to make some changes to better our team!
