The key to success is working together as a team and Urban Capers hunts are designed to let each person’s individual skills shine. For example, one person has great attention to detail, someone else has a good eye for a photo, someone likes to navigate and someone else likes to play with words. With Urban Capers, each of these players gets a chance to prove themselves and help their team emerge victorious! Relaxing, fun, fast-paced, and cooperative, our scavenger hunts get teams working and laughing together, and they’ll be talking about their adventure for a long time to come.

Corporate events or private events are aimed at groups of 20 to 200. You get the hunt, time and date of your choosing (subject to venue opening hours if applicable). Have fewer than 20 players? A private event may not be for you. Check out our public events to choose an upcoming event to attend!

It was an excellent team-building activity…Kala S., Toronto Western Hospital

“We chose an Urban Capers Murder Mystery scavenger hunt at the Royal Ontario Museum as a team-building exercise for our work group because it looked entertaining, and it appealed to our hyper-competitiveness.

Jodi was incredibly helpful in answering all our questions and setting up our scavenger hunt, as well as creating a Know Your Colleagues quiz for us on short notice. The quiz was an amusing way to learn about each other, and the scavenger hunt was an exciting and educational two hours of searching the museum for answers to cryptic clues.

Of particular note, the Urban Capers team members we met at the museum were so friendly and entertaining – they really made the game special. My colleagues have all mentioned that they had a great time, and we might even have another scavenger hunt with Urban Capers.

I would recommend an Urban Capers scavenger hunt to any group that wants to enhance their teamwork, or that just wants to do an enjoyable activity together.”
