What is ZooQuest?
ZooQuest: The High Tech Treasure
Hunt in a Zoo
is a problem solving activity in which teams solve clues and use
state-of-the-art Global Position System (GPS) technology to locate
treasure hunts provide clues and set your team loose to find answers
so does ZooQuest. Typical treasure hunts provide puzzles and require
and so does ZooQuest. Typical treasure hunts are just
typical. But ZooQuest is unlike anything youve ever experienced
Your group will experience the first team building adventure powered by
billions of dollars worth of technology. Your team has the coordinates,
but can they work together to find their target? Weve hidden the
treasure. Now its up to you to find it.
Teams of four to five people receive handheld GPS units pre-programmed
with the locations of hidden treasures. The GPS units guide teams to
within 20 feet of their goal. After that, they use their wits and
determination to decipher written clues to find the hidden answers.
ZooQuest gives participants the opportunity to work together to achieve
200 feet. 100 feet. 50 feet. 25 feet. Its over here! We got it!
Where to next? This way. Follow me
Points are awarded for those who find each of the hidden answers. The
faster you find the items, the more points you receive. ZooQuest gives
people the opportunity to work together to achieve their goals. Teams
enjoy an engaging day of Coopetition through cooperation and friendly

What Others Think of Our
ZooQuest: The High-Tech Treasure Hunt in a Zoo:
exceeded my expectations by providing a unique way in which our team
could practice brainstorming and team building skills but in a way that
was fun as well as educational. Thanks for the memory.
LCDR Kucia, Naval Hospital Lemoore
Excellent event. This is the best team training I have ever participated
Geri Haraden, Naval Hospital Lemoore
This was a
very good exercise for our group as sometimes, we lose focus on the big
picture, based on our daily schedules. I will also give you and your
company, high praise for the facilitator, Dan Silvert. He delivered all
of his presentations/lessons with a lot of energy but easy to follow and
made it extremely fun. Dan looked very comfortable and is a very good
speaker/teacher. I would recommend Team Builders Plus to anyone looking
for this type of session and would also direct them to ask for Dan, as
the facilitator. Thanks you again.
Bryan Reece, Waste Management
your half-day of training to a full day by helping your team members
understand each other (and themselves) better by learning about their
personalities and styles. The personality work uses the DISC instrument
to enlighten team members with new insights about themselves and how
they operate with others. A wonderful addition to the ZooQuest session:
