4 Amazing Benefits of a Scavenger Hunt for Team Building

A traditional scavenger hunt is usually a game in which the players — either individuals or teams —
compete to see who can obtain the most items from a list within a specified area. However, a
scavenger hunt inspired activity can be customized to become more creative and even greater when
conducted on a larger scale. At Rush-A-Way, we’ve done countless scavenger hunt inspired activities
as part of team building activities in Dubai and it is essentially an awesome activity to have for a
corporate team building. Here are some of the key benefits on why you should consider planning your very own scavenger
hunt at your next team building event:

1. Improves collaboration

solve clues and work with one another to win the challenge. Through scavenger hunts, team members
must communicate effectively and take initiative in leading their team to complete the challenge
within the given time. At Rush-A-Way, we’ve witnessed teams come out of their comfort zone, step
