Have a highly competitive team?
You’ll enjoy having access to our real-time leaderboard to see where they stack up against the competition. But hold onto your phones because the facilitator will turn off this feature toward the end. You must cross the finish line to see who the winning team is!
ScavengerQuest is perfect for a large conference or a small team event. You can discover a city or zoo like you never have before! Race in and out of shops, throughout city streets, search for famous landmarks and give back with charity-based tasks.

Designed to inspire creativity, memorable interactions and provide photo documentation of completing a task or challenge.

ScavengerQuest is truly the most awesome scavenger hunt ever.
Group size: 6-300+
Program Length: 2-3 hours
Suggested Team Size: 5 is optimal, 3-6 is fine
Space requirements: city
Program Location: outside
What is the best team size?
We typically recommend teams of 5. However, teams of 3-6 can also work well. 7 or more people per team will not be as engaging for all of the participants.
Is it better to predetermine the members of the teams or randomly assign people to teams?
The answer to this question depends upon your goal for the session. Sometimes, participants are comprised of several teams from one department. In these cases, our clients tend to like to preset the teams so that people can interact with people they don’t work with on a regular basis. Other times, groups are comprised of a single team or department and randomly assigning teams works fine.
Who forms the teams?
We can randomize small groups on the spot, but for groups larger than 20 people, we recommend you form the teams ahead of time. If you are preselecting the teams, we suggest you disseminate this information to the participants either at the program or prior to the event. We do not recommend reading off of a list at the beginning of the program.
What is the typical length of the program, and is this flexible?
A typical program runs 2.5-3 hours. Due to the nature of this program, we don’t recommend changing the time more than that.
How much set-up time is needed?
An hour is good for groups up to 100 people.
We’re using our conference room all day. Can you set up during our break?
Possibly. It depends on the group size and the break length.
What are the room requirements?
The ideal set up is one 60” round table with linens and chairs for each team. Two 8’ rectangular tables for program supplies are needed at the front of the room (for up to 100 people). Also, a screen, projector, sound system and microphone (for groups larger than 30) are needed.
What about prizes?
Prizes do not work for this activity. (Spoiler Alert: If you’re playing, please stop reading here.) The group either succeeds as a whole group or fails as a whole group. There is no winning team.
What is the best attire for this event?
Space suits! Or anything you would wear to a typical event at your organization is fine.
Can this be done outdoors?
This activity was designed for a conference room or ballroom with a screen, projector, and (for groups larger than 30) a microphone.
Can this be done while drinks and appetizers are being served?
We very strongly discourage this. The directions are very complicated and we will need everyone’s full attention.
How long is the debrief?
The debrief typically runs 20-40 minutes based on the needs of your group. We can get into some deeper topics if you want to.
How much clean up time is needed?
Most programs can be cleaned up in 15-30 minutes.
