Over the last couple of years we had done some enjoyable staff events but none that really helped them work together as a team in a competitive environment, and my staff thrives on competition. This idea evolved from the idea of doing a scavenger hunt. We just wanted something a little more challenging and we have several staff members who follow the show The Amazing Race. Planning this does takes a lot of time and I did a majority of the work at home since it was a surprise. We told the staff that there was going to be a mandatory staff event in a couple of months and did not tell them anymore details.
Activities Where Consider not only what tasks teams will perform, but the location at which they will perform them. Remember to vary the types of places you go to. Choose some that are busy, some that are quiet, some urban, some out in the countryside. It is important to think about whether a public location will suit your group.
Tri-fold the invitation with the logo facing out, insert it in a clear cellophane bag, add yellow shred and tie with black curling ribbon. You can also print this logo and glue it to the front of your challenge envelopes! Location This Amazing Race Party is designed for pre-teens and teens, so choose a pedestrian friendly shopping center like a town square or a mall. Teams Choose teams by doing a random drawing. When my daughter was 12, we had 2 teams, so my husband and I could each chaperone a team.
Testimonials Here is just a sample of what our past clients thought about the Amazing Race. This allowed us to debrief the Amazing Race activities during our afternoon strategy presentation and link these activities back to the strategy. During our Amazing Race it was very clear that all of our employees were having a great time and enjoyed the various challenges put in front of them. All employees were encouraged to step out of their comfort zone and challenge themselves, and the program allowed them to do this in a supportive environment.
