I just got back on Sunday from an AMAZING trip to Washington DC…
I rented a 4 story Victorian Mini Mansion just outside of downtown for my high-level mastermind, The Tribe.
We talked about advanced marketing strategies, dove deep into their businesses, and did some very impactful goal-setting for 2019.
In a couple of days, I’m going to share some of the big takeaways and strategies we covered…
But today, I want to share one of the special “activities” we did with the group…
because it was a TON of fun and could make for an amazing client social if you work in-person with clients, or are hosting a retreat, live workshop, or other in-person events.
First, let me just mention that DC was INCREDIBLE. If you haven’t been, I strongly suggest adding it to your list!
All of the museums in the National Mall are free…. (Air & Space Museum, Museum of Natural History, Museum of American History, National Gallery of Art, The Smithsonian, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and the list goes on.)
Not to mention the White House and all of the other historical monuments and statues you can visit.
I wanted our group to have an EXPERIENCE while we were in DC. I didn’t want them just sitting in the Airbnb all day masterminding (even though it was a pretty sweet home!)
Since there’s so much to do there, and we had limited time, I was trying to think of a way for us to bond as a group AND see as much possible in a short time.
And then it hit me…. a SCAVENGER HUNT!
We did a bunch of interviews and ended up working with a professional scavenger hunt company for the event.
It was so much fun! Here’s how it worked:
We divided up into teams of 5 (and created team names, of course). Each group has a “team leader” who would submit the answers.
Every person downloaded an app on their phone, where the questions would pop up, and of course, you get points for getting the answers correct.
Some questions required you to take pictures of the group at specific locations (super cool)…. because we had a fun photo album from the hunt after it was over.
For example, one question asked us to snap a pic of us meditating in the Secret MoonGate Gardens (see below!)
There were also BONUS QUESTIONS that would randomly pop up, and the team that gets the answer the fastest would win extra points.
In the end, the team with the most points won.
We used a company called Strayboots, but there are lots of good ones out there. And… if you’re on a budget, you can even make up your own questions!
Not only did we learn and get to see a lot, but it was fun and we really bonded as a group.
It was a great experience, so I wanted to share in case you’re looking for a fun idea to do with your groups 🙂
Make it a productive day,
