The Great Monterey Scavenger Hunt
Get your group outside to see the highlights of Cannery Row and historic Monterey while working together in a competitive activity!
Our scavenger hunt includes several challenges where the teams seek out photo opportunities, physical evidence, and questions to answer about the area. We add some unique opportunities for extra points and voila! You have a great team event.
We can tailor this activity to cover any location, to leave from and return to any hotel or restaurant, and fill as much time as you have available. We can also incorporate bikes or surreys for an additional charge. Our staff tallies the scores of each group and awards ribbons to the winners and a gag prize to the last place team.
Bike Build for Charity
This two hour competitive activity is a great way for your group to coordinate, cooperate, compete and give back. We often coordinate with Boys and Girls Clubs of Monterey County and or The Salvation Army to donate the bikes.
We start with a 45 minute rev ‘em up activity that is your choice of The Great Monterey Scavenger Hunt along Cannery Row or Minute to Win It games on site at your venue. These activities set the tone for the day and gets all of the participants involved.
Each team is tasked with building a bike, with no directions, and adding a theme through decorations. Once complete each team picks two representatives to ride the bike (timed) through a basic set of cones with everyone cheering them on.
For the group that wants to get out and play.
This is one of the more competitive programs that we have, offering everything from beach volleyball and coconut bocce to kayak races and sandcastle projects. We work with you to tailor a Beach Olympics to match your group’s energy and athleticism. Our goal is to provide you with a platform for fun, camaraderie, and high morale.
