Posted on Posted in Activities, Treasure Hunt

There aren’t too many activities that are beneficial to the body and mind in equal measure, but a treasure hunt is one.

Treasure Chest

1. The Great Outdoors

The benefits of being outside can’t be understated. It makes us healthier and happier, for a start, and also boosts our brainpower. Doing something that gives you these benefits directly is good, but it’s even more fun when you’re occupying your brain with something else. On a treasure hunt, you’ll get all the goodness of being in the outdoors without even realising it, because your brain is focused on something else!

2. Challenge

Some friendly competition never hurt anybody, did it? Divide yourself up into teams and see who can get the treasure first. It’s all a bit of fun of course, but we know you secretly want to come out on top – and having the pressure of another team solving puzzles and breaking codes might just give you the dose of focus you need to make it a memorable victory.

3. Social Bonding

You might have been friends with your fellow team members for years… but how much of that time has been spent in pubs? Teaming up for a treasure hunt will naturally bring people closer together as they work together, divide tasks and develop a strategy for winning. On a stag do, it might just be the thing that ensures a group friendship that lasts well after the wedding!

4. Something Different

There are dozens of reasons to go on a treasure hunt, one being that it’s different! There aren’t too many opportunities to step outside of your comfort zone, challenge your brain, and have fun all at the same time. A treasure hunt permits all three. Say goodbye to the same old, same old and hello to new skills and experiences!
