Name your venue and Quest will make it work

Scavenger Hunt works brilliantly in a massive range of places. City centres are ace. Town centres are terrific. Reality: Quest is so polished at making corporate events sparkle in the most obscure locations, we’ll make it momentous wherever.

Event Format

There is huge scope with Quest’s Scavenger Hunt outdoor team building activity, and different elements can be included depending on your timeframe.

However many you include, Quest recommends a Central Theme, a Photo Challenge, and the Scavenger Hunt core ingredient.

Read about how our suggestions work, and if you have some great ideas of your own, call us and we’ll make those work too

Central Theme

Quest will build your Scavenger Hunt around a central theme. This can be something that you specify to Quest, or an idea Quest will develop and pitch to you.
An exceptional example of this is an idea that a client brought to us. It still holds the top slot for the zaniest team building event theme we’ve worked with. Quest has been asked to build events around relaunching fuel filling stations. We’ve been commissioned to reflect and celebrate the cultural diversity of a pharmaceutical team. We’ve even themed an event around the London Underground, complete with giant tube maps and train timetables. But this was the first time we’ve built a corporate event with the theme of a pub-crawl! And it wasn’t even for a brewery!
With credit to the client, their annual conference actually had a central feature that was quintessentially British. It was from that the team building pub-crawl was born, after all, what’s more British than a pub crawl?

Photo Challenge

The event may have been called The Great Brighton Pub Dash. However, although visiting the pubs was a requirement, with the conference black-tie dinner following the team building event, drinking, sadly was not.

If you can’t have a drink in a pub, the next best thing is to take a picture! (Well on a Quest corporate event anyway). Not just any random picture though, they all had to meet specific criteria. What were those criteria? Call Quest, book a Scavenger Hunt and you’ll find out!

On any photo challenge, the pictures are central to earning points, scoring and winning. On the Great Brighton Pub dash photos were instantly sent to Quest via WhatsApp.


On a Quest Scavenger Hunt outdoor team building activity, the list of items to be scavenged will always be challenging. They will also be unusual, and cheap or better still free …. to good negotiators! For example a sachet of tomato ketchup or a bag of pork scratchings.

The challenge for teams is that in the heat of the other parts of the event, they actually remember to scavenge. And once they’ve scavenged to safely bring the items back to the event base. This all sounds simple but is easily forgotten.

Like so many superb Quest events, Scavenger Hunt is multi-layered and some strategic planning will earn big points. Elements that may seem of secondary importance could reap huge rewards if approached with energy and focus.
