A dynamic place to hold a team building scavenger hunt on Chicago Navy Pier
Event Description: An attractive place for a corporate team building event, Chicago’s Navy Pier –with more than 8 million visitors each year — is a happening place to say the least.
Location History: During WWI, it housed several regiments of soldiers; during WWII, this was the place for pilot training orientation. After the war, Navy Pier served as a branch campus for the University of Illinois. Today, well, what isn’t Navy Pier? Part theater district, part Fisherman’s Wharf – Navy Pier is the Midwest’s #1 tourist destination, hosting everything from a giant carousel to a Shakespeare theater to a stained glass window museum.
During your corporate team building treasure hunt…you may encounter: a monument to Chicago’s favorite sports announcer; a brass bell from an old war ship; a wall-sized picture of a man and his goat; a statue of one of the bard’s most famous heroines, and much more.
Here’s Dr. Clue himself, Dave Blum, sharing his thoughts about this teambuilding scavenger hunt:
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.
Gather in Gateway Park.
