Embark upon the Treasure Quest! Armed with only a treasure map and some basic equipment, your teams must race against time and each other to solve the riddles, complete the tasks and answer the questions that stand between them and the glory of claiming the Lost Tracker’s treasure for themselves.
With both physical and mental challenges along the way, this exercise has something for all abilities and tests skills in lateral thinking, problem solving, planning, time budgeting and of course working together as a team. But ultimately, only the most successful team will claim the right to step forward and take on the final challenge and see if they have what it takes to claim the Lost Tracker’s treasure!
Activities to choose from which take place at 2.00pm are:
Creations for Creatures – With this exercise, your team is introduced to the concept of animal enrichment, a method employed by zoo keepers to keep their animals happy, healthy and stimulated.
Your team will be given advice and guidelines and supplied with all the materials and sticky tape you need before racing against the clock to design and construct a device to test the abilities of some of our animals.
This is an exercise in planning, time budgeting and cooperation to not only build an exciting toy, but also deliver it right inside the animals enclosure where it will be judged by the toughest panel of all, the animals themselves!
