How it works

Everyone loves a good contest, and Getting To Know You social scavenger hunt adds a unique twist on a classic team building activity. Your team can use our custom smartphone app to connect other team members to questions on our scavenger hunt list created for your event. Participants turn in answers in the form of pictures, funny videos, or even quick text responses. For each question answered, participants earn points along the way.

Every challenge is quick and fun to complete, and gives your team members the chance to learn a lot about their new friends in a short period of time. Challenges include themes like hobbies, school, travel, works, skills, and personal interests. These themes are guaranteed to start deeper conversations and create a solid foundation for friendships and working relationships.

Give your team members anywhere from one to three hours of total entertainment with the added benefit of deeper bonding.

Utilizing smartphone technology for easier bonding

This makes for a fun, entertaining, exciting activity that builds strong bonds.

The activity unfolds in real-time on any Internet-enabled device so everyone can watch the action live. Encourage healthy competition and entertainment with a contest that is low-maintenance, easy, and fun to complete. Everything is automated and effortless on your part, as you get everything you need for success.
