Scavenger hunts like these are a popular choice for corporate tours and team building for a variety of reasons. From promoting teamwork to encouraging trust and elevating team morale, here are a few reasons why a team scavenger hunt may be the perfect corporate activity for your team in the months to come.

Employee Engagement

Engaging your employees is crucial during times of stress and is important for maintaining a positive office culture. According to studies, employees feel happier and more fulfilled in their careers when they feel like they are working toward a greater purpose. By keeping your employees continually engaged, you’ll end up seeing results in the long run. This is where corporate events like scavenger hunts really shine. Our Colorado Springs scavenger hunts are ideal for teams hoping for a fun-filled experience that challenges their strength and their critical thinking skills. By honing these, you’ll be building a better, stronger team overall, and help each team member realize their part. 

Improving Communication

Strong team communication, especially during times of remote working, is crucial for productivity and the general flow of any team. Scavenger hunts provide an excellent opportunity to promote strong communication among your team as you face a series of obstacles and challenges. You’ll need to work together to solve problems, and by the end of the hunt, you’ll be able to bask in a collective win that sees your entire team beaming with pride. 

Building Trust

Trust is a cornerstone of any successful team, and you’ll need plenty of it to make it through the modern-day scavenger hunt. By relying on each other and working together to achieve a common goal, your team will experience a newfound appreciation for one another.  

Having Fun

The pressures on today’s employees can be a lot to handle, which is why it’s so important that teams take some time away from the hustle and instead enjoy each other’s company for an afternoon.

Preparing for High Altitude Activities

4 Best Tips to Prepare for High Altitude Activities

How to Prepare for Outdoor Activities at High Altitude

Millions of tourists flock to Colorado each year to soak in the fresh air, clear skies, and stunning views of nature. Colorado Springs is home to some of the most amazing sights in North America. But with beautiful mountain views comes high altitude, which can present various issues for visitors who don’t take precautions beforehand. At Broadmoor Outfitters, we’re committed to offering exciting outdoor tours to accommodate a wide variety of visitors, and we want you to enjoy your experience in Colorado Springs to the absolute fullest. That’s why we’ve compiled this short list of things to do to prepare for your outdoor adventure. 

Take it easy

With an elevation of over 6,000 ft., it’s safe to say Colorado Springs is an ideal spot for outdoor enjoyment. However, the stress of altitude can take a toll on visitors that aren’t yet acclimated to the higher elevation. Taking it slow is one way to avoid overexerting yourself. Take your time when hiking outdoors or uphill, and don’t be afraid to ask your tour guide for a breather if you find one necessary. Our Colorado Springs tours are meant to be enjoyed and remembered, and we want everyone to feel safe as they navigate their time with us. 

Drink more water

Ample hydration is crucial to avoid the pitfalls of altitude sickness. We can’t stress this enough. Your body dehydrates more quickly at higher altitudes, so you should definitely keep this in mind when on your Colorado Springs tour. You can even start preparing on the ride over. Whether you arrive by plane or by land, start drinking more water and make sure to keep it up for the entirety of your time in Colorado Springs. 

Limit alcohol intake

The effects of alcohol are exacerbated by high altitude. By drinking alcohol cautiously or perhaps not at all, you’ll give yourself a fair shot at enjoying your Colorado nature tour to the max. Not to mention, going easy on the alcoholic beverages will ensure you wake up bright-eyed and ready to tackle the adventure coming your way. In our opinion, that’s the best way to experience Colorado Springs. 

Document your adventure

There is no shortage of gorgeous sights to behold when you’re enjoying the great outdoors of the American West. Feel free to bring along your favorite digital camera to document all of the excitement. These are memories you’ll definitely want to look back on.

Your safety is always the top priority when participating in outdoor activities in Colorado Springs. Whether you’re embarking on an exciting day of zip lining, rock climbing, falconry or mountain biking, we’re here to show you the very best of Colorado Springs.
