The Antilles VI staff of 60+ teachers and administrators recently enjoyed a secret agent themed team building event that has been over a year in the making. Antilles had a Tropical Treasure Hunt planned for their staff in 2020, but due to Covid-19, they needed to wait. Fast forward to August 2021 and the event was able to move forward. The staff was broken into teams of six. Teams participated in four friendly competitions that allowed staff to get out of their comfort zone while having fun. These secret agent themed competitions included archery tag (with foam tip arrows and safety masks), a blind folded maze with actual laser beams and smoke machines, Tropical Treasure Hunt’s exclusively licensed augmented reality secret agent game, as well as a spy themed improv acting contest with trained and amateur actors as the judges. To succeed in these competitions, staff members had to demonstrate strong critical thinking skills, time management, communication, teamwork and creativity.
