EDUCATIONAL SCAVENGER HUNT TEAM BUILDING ADVENTURES 

Tours with tour guides, pointing out the obvious are forgettable. In our scavenger hunt programs, our learners become the tour guides where they discover points of interests on their own through competitive missions, trivia, and challenges. What a great team building experience!

TESTIMONIALS

left-quotes-sign.png

I learned that it is important for a leader to think not only about themselves, but also about others around them. Aloha Spirit helped me to be a kind person.

Japanese High School Student

[The LbE Hawaii program] changed my perspective on sustainability showing me how our local communities are trying to become more energy efficient. It was fun to go exploring around the parts of my local city that I have never been [to].

 

Jayci Takara, Kalani High School Student

 

[A] major highlight was being able to connect with [non-profits] such as Sustainable Coastlines [Hawaii], who are leading the way within island sustainability spreading awareness about waste reduction and organizing fun beach cleanups. I am so grateful to have been a part of such a meaningful program. Mahalo nui loa LbE Hawaii!
