Team Building Adventures

Our Team Building Adventures actively engage participants, sparking creative energy, fostering innovation and building camaraderie. Teams can accelerate their growth by combining one of these Team Building Adventures with one of our training workshops. Our Team Building Adventures can be customized to fit your groups needs, whether you're looking for a light-hearted team building program or a meaningful team development experience.

Build a Boat

Participants really appreciate the opportunities to brainstorm, design and construct a boat from start-to-finish while paying careful attention to team processes (like decision making, conflict resolution and feedback). Once constructed, the completed boats compete in a regatta. Only the lucky stay dry. (photo gallery)

Build a Bridge

Teams receive instructions, design clues and building supplies, then develop a design concept and construction plan. As quickly—and creatively—as possible, they build two symmetrical halves of a bridge (remotely), join them and then share them with the team. (photo gallery)

Charity Team Building

These philanthropic team building events are a sure fire way to bond your team while giving to a charity. Adventures range from building bikes to “paying it forward” while exploring a city of your choice. Give today!


Participants break into teams to practice and compete in a series of fast paced fun challenges designed to test their skills in everything from balancing coat hangers to bowling with marbles. After practice, teams have a chance to select their best representatives in each activity to compete head to head against other teams for a final showdown.

Get Set...Go!

The Thinking Person's Race

Teams of 5-6 are given backpacks with supplies, a time limit and a mission to complete. It's "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" meets "The Great Race." (photo gallery)


Teams of 3-4 are given maps or charts, then taught to use GPS (global positioning system) units to determine the approximate location of a secret cache, within 6-20 feet, then fan out for a search. It takes deductive reasoning to determine exactly where the cache may be. (photo gallery)

Great Speech

Teams plan their short speech using our practical and humorous handbook and some props. The program is carefully structured, with specific roles and responsibilities, so that each team’s process of developing the speech sparks new understanding about creative teamwork.

High Ropes

Using harnesses, helmets, cables, ropes and wooden beams strung high among trees or poles, teams explore risk-taking, trust and coaching. (photo gallery)

Low Ropes

The low ropes elements are close to the ground so the perceived risk is low, but still challenging to complete. Participants walk tightropes, negotiate obstacles, climb walls, and pass teammates through a giant spider web. (photo gallery)

Indoor Rock Climbing

Your team members will pair up, one person "on belay" supporting and observing the climber, providing the type and amount of help the climber needs—the other in a harness scaling the wall. (photo gallery)


Teams are given backpacks with supplies, and strategize how to acquire the greatest number of points for completing mental and physical challenges. (photo gallery)


Teams receive a packet of envelopes with clues, cameras, spending money and maps, then venture into a nearby city center or town to beat the clock and complete a customized series of challenges. (photo gallery)

Team Orienteering

Teams learn topographical map reading, compass reading and distance pacing to successfully navigate an orienteering course and find the hidden markers, enabling groups to experience the profound shift from working independently to working interdependently to achieve a common goal. (photo gallery)

Team Performance Challenges

Teams are led through a series of activity stations: each takes 30-45 minutes including a provocative discussion about how to maximize individual involvement, plan effectively, and which leadership and participation roles work best. (photo gallery)

Team Sailing

Participants have the opportunity to practice different areas of responsibility: at the helm, at the rudder, on the boom--then coach their peers on new skills, share risk-taking (and mistake-handling) and improve trust. (photo gallery)


Working in teams of 4-5, and outfitted with a backpack full of supplies and a series of challenges to complete, you’ll explore a zoo environment in order to better understand the business initiatives most critical to your organization. Your success depends on your team’s ability to gather and synthesize a variety of data, work to a deadline and collaborate. (photo gallery)
