Team Building Trek

 

Looking for a fun way to build cooperation and boost morale for a team? Team Building Trek is a 90 minute series of activities designed to build leadership, communication and team work among your group.  The Trek includes an activity that will help group members identify their “leadership species” (their personal style of working with others), a team problem-solving challenge that will test your group’s ability to work as a unit, and a mini-scavenger hunt in the Zoo.  



Program Information:

• Ages teen through adult
• 1-30 participants $250, 31-60 participants $350
• If the program takes place at the Zoo School, Zoo admission is not required. However, if you would like to enter the Zoo anytime other than during the program, Zoo access can be added for a discounted group rate. Group rates must be scheduled in advance and one person needs to pay for everyone on the day of your visit.
