A fun site to hold a team building exercise in the Bronx Zoo
Event Description: An truly “wild” site for a corporate team building event, the Bronx Zoo is one of the world’s largest metropolitan zoos, showcasing some 4,000 animals representing about 650 species.
Location History: Built upon grounds once owned by Fordham University and later sold to the City of New York for a mere $1,000, the Zoo opened its doors to the public on November 8, 1899. Architects Heins & LaFarge designed the original permanent buildings (many still seen today) as a series of majestic, Beaux-Arts pavilions grouped around the large circular sea lion pool. The Bronx Zoo today combines the elegance of the turn of the century with today’s state-of-the-art exhibits and attractions.
During your corporate team building treasure hunt… expect to visit the wilds of Madagascar; encounter a piece of water pipe from Pompeii; stand up to giant rhino statues honoring matriarch Bessie; undulate with an ungulate, and much, much more. Get your Indiana Jones on in the wild, wild Bronx Zoo.
Dr. Clue Gives You Three Ways to Customize Your Hunt Program
Not every corporate team building program is the same. Depending on your group, your focus may be integrating new people into the team and breaking down personal boundaries and divisions. Or you may have an existing department where teams could, with a little practice, cooperate and communicate more smoothly across teams and divisions. Or you might simply have a group that thrives on the use of technology. Let Dr. Clue customize your hunt program by selecting the content focus that best matches your group and your needs.
