A great place to hold a team building scavenger hunt event in Vancouver
We love this scavenger hunt location! Great views, fantastic people, little ferry boats plying the channel. We tend to meet out at the end of the island, at Ron Basford Park, where there is a kind of stadium seating overlooking the water. The hunt then explores the tiny shops and galleries of Granville Island, taking advantage of all the historical signage and public artwork. Stop for a bit at the Public Market and voila, it’s a perfect day.
Event Description: Artist’s workshops abound on Vancouver’s Granville Island; two breweries serve up cold drinks; and the views of downtown Vancouver are unsurpassed. What better place to hold a corporate teambuilding event?
Location History: Once a pair of lonely sandbars at the entrance of Vancouver’s False Creek, today’s Granville Island is often listed as the favorite place to visit in Vancouver: a sparkling, one-of-a-kind multi-use area that blends industry, shopping and entertainment. In the early 1900s it was home to such companies as Vulcan Ironworks, Wallace Shipyards, National Machinery, Diethers Coal and Shipping, and Wright’s Canadian Ropes. These days, the action revolves around the Public Market, with its fresh produce, flower shops, and restaurants.
During your corporate teambuilding treasure hunt… expect to explore the Netloft and the Kid’s Market; visit Mama’s bench; pay homage to a totem pole, and much more.
Not every corporate team building scavenger hunt 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 scavenger hunt program by selecting the content focus that best matches your group and your needs.
