The Collaborative Hunt is a self-facilitated workshop by you while all the preliminary work is completed by Repario. You give us the location, some information on your company and competitors and we create the perfect Collaborative Hunt.
We ship you all the materials you will need for teams of 5 to run in a 3 to 8 hour setting. Click here (opens a new window) to download a sample passport.
We require a two-week advance notice to complete the preliminary work.
What is the workshop?
Part Scavenger Hunt, part adventure race, part learning opportunity,
The Collaborative Hunt is designed to challenge and inspire participants.
Collaboration Vs. Competition -- the Key difference between a traditional scavenger hunt and The Collaborative Hunt is that collaboration between individuals and teams are required to complete the course. Teams are not given all the tools necessary and must either steal members from other teams or share information.
Small teams will have to use all of their
collective skills in problem solving, critical thinking, clear
communication, collaboration and teamwork to be successful.
Stealing Team Members?
If one team sees another, they are allowed to take one of
their tools, but the other team can take a tool in return.
Since some of the clues require certain tools (i.e. GPS unit
or binoculars), they will want to take tools or items from
However, the tool is attached to the person
holding it! So the teams are in fact picking a person to come
over to their team with the assumption, based upon some clues,
that the person will have the tools and skills necessary to
This is a great variable that gets lots of
networking opportunities for people who do not normally work
It is also very similar to work -- when we
take someone from another department, we are assuming that
they have the tools and skills to help achieve our goals.
Potential Focus for The Collaborative Hunt:
- Collaboration vs. Competition
- Customer Service

The Collaborative Hunt can be run with a small group, but is one
of the few team building programs that is better the more
people you have.
Each team is to score as many points as possible. Some clues
are more difficult than others but are worth more points.
Also, there are many additional ways to score points -- be

Each participant grabs a backpack at random in the beginning.
The backpack has several items - water, map, list of clues,
scratch paper, writing utensil and another special tool such
as binoculars, GPS unit, compass, length of rope, it could
be many different items. These tools will be necessary to
figure out some of the clues. Because it is random, each team
will have a random set of tools to work with, in the beginning
Each team also receives a digital camera to
take photos as proof of figuring out certain clues and also
