An Innovative Way to Build Your Team!

Our GPS Adventure Challenge combines adventure, technology, and team building into a unique and exciting group experience. Based on the recreational sport called “geocaching”, teams will learn how to use GPS devices to get from point A to point B, etc”. At each point, the team must complete scenarios as to earn the right to get to the next point.Teams will be given handheld GPS devices and have to plan their strategy for locating each point. So right off the bat, your group will have to solve problems, communicate and work together.

When the teams arrive at each destination point, they will complete a different initiative that will focus on either a communication skill or problem-solving skill or a skill that can only be completed as a group. After each initiative is completed, the group earns the right to continue on to the next site and points are awarded. The team with the most points wins. The groups will be brought back for a debrief to discuss what they learned from the experiences. This is an innovative and fun way of team building in a very beautiful and historic area! And when you mix that with the BEST Ziplines in the World…You get the best Team Building in the land!… Call for details.
