Options

Choose Team Building day options to suit your organisation.

These can be used as a whole session for a morning or afternoon team building session, or can be used in combination with the other options to create a day event for your team.

  • Communication Lockdown: designed to look at your whole organisations communication, this task locks a few of your team away with just 1 form of communicating; walkie talkies! There is a second tier of your team that can receive the messages but cannot complete the work, and finally there is the rest of the team who need to follow the instructions to complete the challenge but cannot hear the directions themselves. This is designed to highlight the communication systems throughout your organisation and how they can be made more effective.
  • Search and Rescue Scenario: you will need to establish a base camp in the woods, and follow instructions via walkie talkie to find and extract a casualty from a location in the woods. After this you will have to work together to create a signal fire in order to alert your chief instructor that the challenge is complete.
  • Orienteering Team Challenges: This is an orienteering route around the woods that has a challenge at each point you reach, by following the clues from each challenge you will be able to piece together the information for the last challenge. Without these you get the equipment but no instructions!
  • Keep it Snappy: a three hour session of short sharp activities for the whole group, this is a great get to know you challenge and allows teams to chat and change partners frequently, ideal for new teams, or for teams that have no specific requirement to improve set soft skills or team attributes. This is a fast paced and fun set of activities with a little bit of everything thrown in.
