What is California Creativity/Destination Imagination? California Creativity is the California chapter of the Destination Imagination organization. Destination ImagiNation, Inc. seeks to be the world’s foremost non-profit membership organization dedicated to promoting three critical life skills among learners at all levels: Creativity, Teamwork, and Problem-Solving. These three life skills form the core of our organization’s value system.

There are TWO Team Challenges that are required elements:  There is the TEAM CHALLENGE that team members select and it is the main challenge that must be solved and then presented in front of appraisers.  Then there is the INSTANTANEOUS CHALLENGE, this challenge we can practice for but it is unknown what the exact challenge will be until it is presented to the team.....ALL require great teamwork!

A: Its Your Move
Create a game played on a giant game board with a large team-driven vehicle for a game piece.

B: On Holiday You and your teammates will create comic fireworks in a humorous performance about your adventures in a foreign nation.
C: Dual DI-lemma Your Dual DI-lemma is to design, build and test two Structures using contrasting materials and contrasting construction methods, and to present a performance illustrating two contrasting Segments.
D: StranDId Isolated in a stranded situation and unable to use electric power of any kind, the characters must use a team-invented mechanical device (and their own "energized" ingenuity!) to cope with their situation. By skillfully adapting everyday items to use in new ways, and with the help of a humorous character, the team will bring its predicament to a happy conclusion.
E: Art of Improv Your challenge is to create a connection of unrelated elements by integrating a team created image(s) from Famous Artwork, information gathered from an Exploration, a Situation, and a Surprise Character by using an Improvisational technique.
