The Ant & the Grasshopper team building programs are all original creations you won't find anywhere else.
We write and develop all of our own innovative, fun programs in-house.
We have over 100 team building programs and most of them we can facilitate anywhere in North America or overseas. However there are several
programs we offer only in the New England area either because they don't travel well (too much equipment) or because they were specifically
designed for New England. Whether you're looking for soft skills development, leadership training, team bonding or just plain fun, we have
the program to meet your goals. Please check our New England programs below and if you don't see something you like then please visit our
Team Building page for more options.
NEW ENGLAND TEAM BUILDING PROGRAMS
Please contact us to make sure you get the program that best fits
your group and goals.
Clue collection and examination, fingerprinting and analysis, forensics, ballistics, trace evidence, microscopic examinations, suspect interrogations,
an autopsy, and a walk through of the crime scene are all part of this fun program. Who will solve the murder? The team
that works best together.
A culinary team building program unlike any other. Lead by one of New England's top Executive Chefs, one of New England's
most reknowned female comedians and one of The Ant & the Grasshopper's lead facilitators this wild and crazy cooking program
is both fun and beneficial. Your group will work in teams to prepare their own meal with such dishes as coconut shrimp,
szechuan chicken and French crepes using... woks! There's no better way to build comaraderie than to break bread together.
This outdoor Summer program consists of such medieval games as the jousting match, crossbow competition, battle of the broad swords, catapult and many more. It can be run for adults only or customized to include
games for children and youths. We can also include medieval entertainment such as wizards, jesters, face painters, story-tellers and other members of
the court, turning your picnic into a royal feast. Long live the King!
Your group is divided into gangs of jewel thieves and sent on a big heist. Which gang will get to the loot first? The gang with the best communication skills.
This team building game is a lot of fun but the real loot is the improved communication and cooperation everyone has when they complete the heist. This program
may be facilitated either indoors or out.
REALITY TV (Team Values)©
This is every competitive Reality TV show in one. We bring all the fun and games such as
Survivor, Apprentice, American Idol and many more. Then your group spins the big wheel and whatever show it lands on they play. After
round one if there's still time they spin the big wheel again and play yet another Reality TV game. This program is never the same
twice. Is your team struggling with one particular game? Not to worry, they'll be playing a completey different game in just a moment.
NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM HUNT©
This hysterical hunt can take place either in the Boston Science Museum or the New England Aquarium.
The hunt includes zany characters, fun challenges and can be customized for all ages. Whether it is a corporate event
for employees only or a company outing for staff and families, everyone will have a great time. History will come to life!
GEORGE'S ISLAND HUNT©
This team hunt takes place in historic Fort Warren on George's Island in Boston Harbor.
The program begins on Long Wharf in Boston. Teams then take a 40 minute cruise to George's Island. On the island teams search the parapets, gun rooms
and secret passages of the old fort for Civil War clues and perhaps a few ghosts. Will the infamous Lady in Black materialize? Once a winning team has been
declared groups may wish to stay on the island for a picnic and to take in the sights.
SALEM WITCH HUNT©
This hunt has your group exploring the streets
and back alleys of Salem, Massachsuetts in search of fun, history and a few witches. Every team gets a digital camera and if
you have the time we recommend a post hunt slideshow to make the program more of a shared experience for all the participants.
This hunt is fun any time of the day but if you want to add a little more excitement we recommend a night hunt with
flashlights in hand and goosebumps on the arms.
THE NEWPORT HISTORICAL HUNT©
Facilitated in beautiful Newport, RI this hunt will have your teams completing fun challenges for some
of Newport's historical characters. Both CVS and Bryant University thought this was one of the most fun hunts they had
SPY HUNT IN CONNECTICUT STATE PARK
Another one of our highly successful, unique and very innovative programs. Spy Hunt takes hunts to a whole new level.
It's a hunt but it's also a game of espionage. Just like the world of espionage, Spy Hunt is a game within a game wrapped in an enigma.
Who are the secret agents and who are the innocent bystanders just come to spend
a nice day of picnicing or swimming? Who are the enemy moles trying to sabotage you at every turn and who can you trust?
Spy Hunt is entertaining AND instructional on so many different levels. This exciting team building program takes place in Connecticut's
Winding Trails State Park outside Farmington, CT., about 15 minutes from Hartford, 45 minutes from New Haven or Springfield, MA. and
about 1 hour from Danbury or Bridgeport. Too far from your location? Not to worry. We can create a Spy Hunt for almost any town or city.
This program encourages strategic thinking, negotiation and problem solving. Throw in navigation, organizational
skills and resourcefulness exercises and you have the makings of a powerful and memorable corporate team building program.
RED SOX NATION EXPLORATION©
Columbus explored the New World. Lewis & Clark explored America. And now YOU will explore the Red Sox Nation.
This fun, team scavenger hunt is available only in Boston. Your group will search for baseball and Red Sox trivia, history,
mythology and landmarks in Beantown. Tell us how long you want your hunt to last and we'll customize it accordingly. "Go Sox!"
OPERATION: NEPTUNE'S SPEAR©:
This program kicks it up a notch and puts your teams on high speed RIB's (Rigid Inflatable Boats) in Boston Harbor. Teams
have only a limited amount of time to speed out to the islands, land on the beaches or piers, collect the clues and then signal their boat Captains
when they are ready to rendezvous at the designated extraction point. Leave no one behind. Hooah!"
DON'T SEE ANYTHING THAT INTERSTS YOU?
We have over 100 team building programs from which to choose. Please visit our Team Building page.
We have indoor programs and outdoor programs. We have philanthropic programs and Green programs. We have training, testing
and evaluation programs, and we have programs that are just plain, morale boosting fun. We have programs for large groups
and programs for small groups. We have programs designed to take place during a meal and others that are not. We have
programs as short as 45 minutes and others that last 2 days. And because we create all of our own programs in-house we can
design a brand new program for you based on a goal, theme, group, location or almost any other criteria. In the past
we have created programs for groups based on such themes as Pirates, Gold Prospectors, Star Trek, the Civil War, Oh Brother, Where Art
Thou, Last of the Mohegans, and a Fantasy Role Playing game. We have created programs specifically for sales teams,
leadership training and orientation programs. We have created programs for specific locations such as hotels, resorts,
conference centers, malls, museums, aquariums, casinos, aboard boats, on islands, cities, towns, parks, farms, gardens, zoo's, college campuses and corporate offices.
We can integrate company messages, product information or specific skill challenges. Everything we do is fun, experiential learning
that uses play to build strong teams. We mix business with pleasure and it works.
