School Supply Scramble


Every day, there are children in the community of Bridgeport who go to school without the supplies or tools they need to succeed. These are the types of educational items that many students take for granted, such as backpacks, lunchboxes, notebooks, and binders.

With School Supply Scramble, your team can help young boys and girls in need be better prepared for the school year. This charity team building activity has participants scrambling to complete challenges in order to earn school supplies and backpacks for a local Bridgeport children’s charity.
Not only is this a fun and energetic indoor activity for corporate groups, it’s also a great way to give back and do something meaningful for your team building event.

School Supply Scramble will help participants:

  • Build better teamwork and collaboration skills
  • Learn how to communicate under pressure
  • Share a heartwarming bonding experience
  • Compete in a friendly and fun charity challenge
  • Directly support local children in your community

How it Works

There are three stages of School Supply Scramble:

  • Stage One: To get set up, your group will need to split into teams and download the smartphone app for the activity.
  • Stage Two: Time to scramble for the most school supplies! Finish as many teamwork challenges as possible by taking photos, videos, or answering trivia questions within the smartphone app. For each challenge you complete, you’ll have the chance to earn more school supplies.
  • Stage Three: Present your backpacks full of school supplies to the rest of the group, and find out which team put together the ultimate charity donation!

Sample Challenges

Word Scramble – Reward: Backpack
Write a numbered list on a piece of paper with at least 20 words that you can create using the letters in “elementary school.†Snap a photo of the completed list to earn your backpack!
