The idea: online/hybrid – and outside!
At the Outdoor Christmas Party, it’s all about movement in the fresh air – and keeping your distance is still possible! Either everyone goes by themselves, or the colleagues meet personally in small groups and are connected with the others online.
Everyone will have installed an app on their phones in advance. As soon as a participant moves in the fresh air outside, hints pop up where the presents from Santa Claus could be found. However: one hint alone is not enough to solve the puzzle! It’s the joining up of multiple hints which provides clarity. In this way, the outdoor Christmas party becomes a real team building event: everyone is needed in order to reach a happy end.
The course of events
The Outdoor Christmas Party begins with a small introduction from the BITOU presenter.
Then the colleagues go outside – alone or in groups, depending on whether it is a purely digital or hybrid event. Now they collect clues by moving around: a clue on the app will be played every 200 meters. Each person can collect a maximum of 18 clues, walking up to four kilometres.
The team comes together again online after the clues have been collected to solve the tasks together. The individual teams (4 to 7 participants) are in competition with each other.
In order to find one of the presents from Santa Claus again, four clues must be available. The clues are divided into four different categories: there are A, B, C, and D clues. Each individual colleague is played only one clue category on their phone. That means: in order to solve one task, at least four alert colleagues are needed.
Each team decides for themselves how they would like to divide their game time. If there is one hour available, there are multiple options:
- 30 minutes of quick walking and then 30 minutes of puzzling and solving tasks
- 20 minutes of running in order to collect as many clues as possible, and 40 minutes of puzzling and solving tasks
- 30 minutes of relaxed walking, maybe only collecting 10 clues each, and then 30 minutes puzzling and solving tasks – and with a lot of luck and skill, the teams will have collected all of the presents again.
Bei der Outdoor-Weihnachtsfeier ist Bewegung an der frischen Luft angesagt – und Abstand halten ist trotzdem möglich!
