MISSION POSSIBLE ™ - A High Tech Team Event
Mission Possible is Nuhop’s version of a high energy,
fun and engaging scavenger hunt. We have taken the best practices of reality
television and modern day technology to create a scavenger hunt that your
colleagues will be talking about for years to come.
Mission Possible programs begin by dividing your group into teams of 6-8 people. Each team is equipped with either a Smart Phone or I Pod Touch prior to the beginning of the race. Traditional hunts equip you with a scavenger hunt list, a digital camera, a collection pack and a map of the venue or city whereas Mission Possible sends you these staples with tools you use on a daily basis
i.e. picture messaging, voice messaging, video messaging, text messages, e-mails and links to specific URL’s and blogs. Just to keep things a bit on the old school side, we prepare a few traditional scavenger hunt exercises that you
will engage in while on The Mission Possible Challenge.
Just like the reality show "The Amazing Race", teams will race through the city or around the chosen venue to solve puzzles, decipher clues, earn points and
work together as a team to achieve ultimate team success. Each Mission Possible Event is customized to that specific location or venue.

THE PAPERCLIP - What Can You Do With a
TARGET - A Grown Up Version of Mouse Trap
As team members enter the conference room they are filled with
intrigue because in the middle of the room there are piles of materials
including, pulleys, ropes, marbles, bowling balls, mousetraps, gears and
This three to four hour team development program asks participants to
design and construct a Rube Goldberg style machine. A Rube Goldberg
machine or device is a deliberately over-engineered machine that
performs a very simple task in a very complex fashion, usually including
a chain reaction. The very simple task during the On Target program is
to launch a ball into a bucket.
During the On Target Program, the larger group is split into smaller
teams comprised of 4-5 people. Each team is given responsibility for
constructing one part of the machine. Each team’s initial reaction is to
work in isolation without consultation with the other teams. Each team
has the responsibility of creating a device that has 2-3 chain reactions
within it’s design, although these chain reactions need to connect with
the chain reactions of those around them. To be successful during this
exercise teams must remain focused on the end goal of creating the On
Target Machine. . . more information

that define our careers"
-- Pat Riley
In today’s fast paced society, we often forget about the simple things that are important in this world. The simple act of giving is one of these things.
Giving in the context of The Paperclip Challenge is a bit different than
just giving of our time and resources it is the art of giving or trading for a
A few years back a gentleman named Kyle McDonald set himself on a mission (for personal gain) to trade a red paperclip for something more valuable. His ultimate goal was to trade this item up to eventually get a house. Did he achieve his goal, well the answer is listed below:
He traded his red paperclip for a Fish Pen, that turned into a doorknob, then a coleman stove, a red generator, a beer keg with neon Budweiser sign, a snowmobile, one trip to Yahk, BC., a cube van, one record contract, one year in
Phoenix, one afternoon with Alice Cooper, a Kiss snowglobe, one movie role and finally A House at 503 Main Street in Kilping, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Klye McDonald achieve his personal mission . . . he got his house from one simple paperclip. The concept of The Paper Clip Challenge as a team development event is one of greater value. The challenge of this exercise is for your team to embark on a journey that will tap each team members inner
talent to muster up the confidence to trade up for the greater good. . .

Playhouses for Tots” provides a teambuilding session designed to showcase constructive collaboration and collective imagination. The Nuhop Center provides all building materials, a detailed set of instructions, and thematic possibilities. Teams of 4-6 participants coordinate to build and decorate a playhouse for underprivileged children. The pace is fast and fun and the outcomes are many. Teams relate to choosing roles, dividing tasks, and forging individual parts into a cohesive whole.
During this session each team is given a description of a child in need. Once
the child’s description is given, teams are charged with the task of building
and painting a custom backyard playhouse based on the child’s life story and
interests. Certain building materials are earned by participating in engaging
team development exercises. Each exercise is carefully chosen to meet your
learning objectives. Come build your team while helping a child in need!
