The competition is fierce! During our Corporate Scavenger Hunts, teams compete against one another to:
Heat up your event with a savory treat. Team up and compete, using the same ingredients, to see who comes up with the tastiest chili recipe. A panel of Skytop Chefs will serve as judges and the best concoction wins.
Try on your chef hats and experience cooking with your colleagues in a professional kitchen with state-of-the-art equipment. This event can be tailored to any time limitations, but we recommend groups of 15 or fewer.
Calling all cake bosses! Artfully work together as a team to design and decorate a cake. Utilize the theme of your meeting or product and incorporate it into this event. Create your own culinary masterpieces under the direction of our Pastry Staff.
All aboard! Work together as a team to not only build your own boat, but to make it float with your team members. Here’s how we do it:
*We recommend teams of 5-10 people for this event.
Name your team and create a flag before being given one minute to collectively grab all the vegetables your team thinks you’ll need to build the fastest veg-box derby car in existence. Forgot something critical? Don’t worry, an additional minute will be given to barter with other teams. Teams will then be given twenty minutes to build their racecars. The racing begins with single-elimination rounds until we have a winner.
*Approximate time needed: 1-2 hours.
Fun and games from bygone days such as three-legged races, sack races, tug of war and dizzy bat spin, just to name a few, are a great way to build camaraderie. Find out who has the competitive edge—and the best sense of humor. A great way to laugh, unwind and build your company’s team spirit at the same time.
*Customize this event with props and ideas from your workplace.
Take your experience to a higher level on our rock-climbing wall. We feature a custom built, 30-foot wall with a real rock look and feel, eight stations from beginner to very advanced and over 300 removable handholds. Plus, all the equipment and training you need to make it a top-notch experience.
Learn the basics of kayaking and make a splash in our cool lake, including safety, boat design, basic strokes, turning, bracing and art of wet exit.
Explore the basics of navigating with a Global Positioning Satellite (GPS). Discover the delights of geocaching, as you use your new skills to find one of Skytop’s hidden caches using one of our state-of-the-art GPS units.
Shift gears and learn how to conquer an array of challenges, including rock gardens, bridges, drops and banked turns. You’re welcome to use our new Trek mountain bikes or your own. Gear up for a real mountain biking adventure. Join us for an exciting, physical trail ride that takes you around the West Mountain and both on and off the West Rim Trail.
Learn about edible plants and wilderness danger, as well as how to use a map and compass, build fires and make emergency shelters.
Bring a thrilling competition to your group as you race around the property and complete the required activities at each site. Earn your envelopes and watch out for any unforeseen road blocks as you try to be the first team to complete the race.
Join our Skytop Naturalist for an exploratory walk along forest trails. You will search for and learn about native plants and wildlife. Degrees of difficulty range from easy, to moderate, to challenging; scenery includes waterfalls, mountain vistas, streams, wetlands, lakes and several different types of forest.
Promote teamwork and creativity while enhancing skills in time management and communication! Each team is given supplies and must create a vessel for an egg to sustain a fall from 5, 10 and/or 50 feet. Additionally, the vessel must be named and have a marketing jingle associated with it. A deadline of 45 minutes to 1 hour is given.
Try your skill at our expert trivia contest. Through six rounds, you will pit your knowledge against the other teams in the room. Answers are revealed throughout the event, and teams can compete for prizes. Make this quiz your own by adding special sections of trivia from your company or organization. We provide the emcee, who will take care of you throughout the evening’s event and will present the scores and winning team at the end.
Featuring a variety of terrain, including wooded areas, our fields are the perfect place to fire up your conquering spirit.
Archery Tag is best described as dodgeball with bows and arrows! Two teams battle to be the first to knock out all the centers of their opposing team’s 5-spot target. Inflatable bunkers on both sides of the field add to the challenge as players strategically move between them while trying to tag other players with the arrows. This exciting, action-packed game offers the ultimate experience that engages the entire team.
Skytop Lodge has added the new Barracuda Laser Tag system and partnered with Predator Games to offer a new high tech adventure. We will now be able to offer indoor laser tag year round. We will use the pavilion for an indoor for a weather protected fun experience. Our indoor laser arena will consist of inflatable bunkers that are shaped like crates, oil drums, logs, walls and even an army tank. A fog machine and music sound track to help get the blood pumping will round out some of our new features. Laser tag will be open to all players between 6 and 106 and can be reserved in one hour blocks for with a maximum of 12 players per hour.
Soar above it all on Skytop’s new TreeTop Adventure Course. Fly through the treetops throughout Skytop’s 5500-acre Pocono Mountain estate securely suspended 10 to 50 feet off the ground with a total course length of over 3,000 feet.
Break into teams and elect a person to scale the rock-climbing wall and retrieve their bag of goodies. Back on the ground, the contents will be shared and the fun begins.
The first task is to build a fire using the found items, as well as supplies that you will find in the general area. The fire will need to be built to a height that will burn through a rope that has been set up by the staff.
Once your rope has been burned through, teams will then proceed to the geocaching phase (if applicable), where locations will be targeted to find special codes—scoring based on speed and number of successful codes retrieved.
The last phase is a paintball target shoot, where each team receives a set number of paintballs and engages targets at varied distances for different point values.
* Teams of no more than 7. This event takes between 3 and 3 ½ hours and can be modified for shorter durations or made more or less physically demanding if the group so chooses. Some portions of this event are timed.
