Corporate Team-building: Use Foursquare for Four-day Scavenger Hunts

Here's a new team building idea that is turning the corporate scavenger hunt on its side: Foursquare for scavenger hunts that can last as long as four days.  Think it sounds impractical?  It's not.  Especially when a corporate meeting has heavy business components that last most of the day.

Here's the real kicker: museums love these kinds of events because they know they can promote new exhibits and pad visitor statistics while helping a meeting group incorporate other items they need to find. 

Of course, an organized scavenger hunt that lasts for hours is easier to manage than something that requires days self-discipline and a version of the "honor system".  But that is why Foursquare is the equalizer.  If your team as to check-in, it keeps everything even.  And it helps meeting attendees find a cool way way to manage their down time.
