Treasure Hunting Games and Creative Communication

Training Course

12-21 October 2021 | Larnaca, Cyprus

We explore the benefits & educational value of a treasure hunt gaming tool in youth work and how it can be used to educate young people on specific topics. Treasure Hunting Games are a great tool for personal and professional development.

As children we used to achieve effective communication regardless of the verbal language barriers. Creative non-verbal and playful communication seems like a skill people are losing along the way of growing up. This training course promotes creative communication by using treasure hunting games as a creative tool to develop alternative communication means.  Treasure hunting games are used to develop necessary skills to raise the quality of communication between adults by using gamification and play as a tool. 

We aim to explore the benefits and educational value of a treasure hunt gaming tool in youth work and how it can be used to educate young people on specific topics. More than communication skills, this project aims to show in practice how one innovative non-formal education method such as a treasure hunt has several applications, a significant potential for developing several competences. It’s collaborative and critical thinking nature makes it a great tool for personal and professional development under a variety of contexts.
