A fun place to hold a team building activity in Calistoga

Event Description: During this treasure hunt adventure, you’ll solve clues up and down the Calistoga downtown area.

Location History:

Once the home of the Wapoo tribe, Calistoga was settled in the 1840’s and led by Sam Brannan, publisher of San Francisco’s first English language newspaper.   Brannan purchased 2000 acres of land in 1885 to develop a spa reminiscent of Saratoga, NY.   The spa opened in 1862 and, with the completion of the railroad in 1868, became a destination hub for the upper Napa Valley.  The name, Calistoga, came from Brannan’s famous malaprop that he would make this “the Saratoga of California”, which actually came out “the Calistoga of Sarafornia”.

During your hunt:  Expect to encounter…a beautiful mural alley…old train cars…mud baths and geysers…a froggy fountain and much, much more.


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.
