Scavenger Hunt Anywhere has been providing corporate treasure hunts and scavenger hunts for many years. Because of our company's name, we are often asked whether we provide corporate treasure hunts or even, what is the difference between the two. The answer to the first question is, of course! The answer to the second question requires a bit of explanation:
Our treasure hunts are comprised of a number of clues that lead teams along a set route, past various checkpoints where they collect additional clues which guide teams toward their final destination. Because we don't want to exclude group members that may be less physically fit than others, we ensure that the activity is designed such that the team with the best planning and problem-solving skills will win, rather than the fastest team. As a result our treasure hunts are less "race-like", so that everyone has an equal chance of winning.
By comparison, our scavenger hunts are based on lists of information and objects to be collected. The tasks are presented in no particular order which means that teams set their own routes and prioritize the tasks that they will try to complete in the allotted time.
When we refer to our programs, we call them "scavenger hunts". They inherently have some characteristics of treasure hunts and if you like the idea of a treasure hunt better, then please let us know and we will show you how your program can be designed in a way that best exactly meets your needs.
