A cool site to hold a team building scavenger hunt in White Plains
Event Description: An appealing site for a corporate team building event, White Plains, NY is situated only 25 miles north of Manhattan.
Location History: It was originally called Quarropas (or “White Marshes”) by the Weckquaeskeck tribe of the Mohican nation. The town’s first colonists bought the land on which White Plains now stands from the Mohicans in 1683; later its county courthouse would be the location of the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence in New York State, on July 11, 1776. George Washington established his headquarters here, and the Battle of White Plains marked a key turning point in the struggle for independence. The town today offers a combination of comfortable suburban living and bustling commercial and retail activity.
During your corporate team building treasure hunt…expect to encounter life-size statues; gurgling fountains; a church with emotional faces; a wall of celebrity photos, 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.
