PLAN AN EXCITING COMPANY PICNIC OR BBQ IN New York City

If you’re planning a corporate picnic or BBQ event, then you’re going to need three main things: food, drinks, and entertainment!

Picnic Party Games is the perfect group activity for any outdoor social or work event. It challenges participants to compete in outrageous challenges as they try to earn points in a race against the clock. It’s a fun and exciting experience that is designed for public parks and picnic areas in New York City.

This is a self-hosted activity that you can run yourself, without having to bring in a professional event coordinator. Don’t worry though – you won’t be on your own! Our support team is always just a phone call away, and our smartphone app will automatically keep track of all the challenges, submissions, and point scores on your event day.

Picnic Party Games will help participants:

  • Learn to strategize and problem solve as a group
  • Hone their teamwork and time management skills
  • Have even more fun at your company picnic or BBQ
  • Encourage socializing and mingling

How it Works

There are three stages to Picnic Party Games:

  • Stage One: To get set up, your group will need to download the smartphone app, and split into teams, pairs, or individuals.
  • Stage Two: Time to start the party! Complete as many photo and video challenges as possible using the smartphone app to earn points and move up the leaderboard.
  • Stage Three: You can turn it into a competition to see who can complete the most challenges before time runs out, or just play to have fun!

Sample Challenges

Catapulting Cuisine – Video Challenge (50 Points)
Use a spoon to catapult a bite-sized food item to another person from 10 feet away. Record a five-second video of them successfully catching it in their mouth! Select “retake” if you need to try again.

Sculpting Nature – Photo Challenge (50 Points)
Collect stones, shells, small sticks, or other items to make your very own free-standing natural sculpture that stands at least 12 inches tall. Snap a photo with your creation.

Draw a Line in the Sand – Video Challenge (60 Points)
Collect a rope, towel, blanket, or whatever is available and stage a tug of war match with another group of people. Record a five-second video of your battle for victory.

Picnic party games is available anywhere, in any time frame, for any group size

One of the coolest benefits of this event is it can be run anywhere! This is perfect for companies with offices spread out across the country or even around the world. Wherever people are participating, we recommend you finish with some post-event storytelling and winner recognition.

This activity is completely flexible when it comes to time and place. Looking for something fun to do in a compressed timeframe, like a lunch hour or conference break? We can make that work too.

And yes, like almost all our team building activities, this event is completely scalable for large groups of any size.
