The Lost Shaker of Salt Scavenger Hunt

This opportunity allowed for a great way to connect as a small group...
"We felt comfortable in our surroundings and enjoyed having a spacious indoor and adjacent outdoor venue that allowed our teams to focus on collaboration, brainstorming and interaction. We've missed being together and this opportunity allowed for a great way to connect as a small group in a beautiful setting."
Inga Zunte, Senior Associate @ Gensler
So impressed with the team building experience...
"Something incredibly powerful happens when you bring people together to find a common goal and purpose. We held our first in-person meeting since COVID at Margaritaville Lake Resort, Lake Conroe and were so impressed with the team building experience. Best of all, the activities they offer are conveniently located on the resort grounds!"

We had an absolute blast!
"Working as a group to find creative ways to make a boat out of boxes was both fun and competitive. Our group was focused on trying to win the competition but also wanted to ensure our boat did not sink. In order to achieve this goal in a short amount of time we had to communicate efficiently.
