Full-Day Team Building Program

Day groups experience the fields, woods and lakes that make up our 150-acre property, partaking in activities that promote healthy team building and both group and individual success. In small groups of around 10-12 people, participants experience goal setting, problem-solving initiatives and low ropes course elements. Facilitators will present the group with scenarios that include a task or challenge, requiring group members to plan, strategize, coordinate their efforts and often “think outside the box” in order to accomplish their goals. After a short break for lunch, participants will have the option of attempting a high ropes course challenge. Debriefing and reflection opportunities will be presented after each activity, and at the end of the program.

  • 9:00am Group arrives. Facilitators will give a brief introduction and explain guidelines. Break into small groups of 10-12 participants.

Half-Day Team Building Program

In small groups of around 10-12 people, participants experience goal setting, problem-solving initiatives and low ropes course elements. Facilitators will present the group with scenarios that include a task or challenge, requiring group members to plan, strategize, coordinate their efforts and often “think outside the box” in order to accomplish their goals. Debriefing and reflection opportunities will be presented after each activity, and at the end of the program.

  • 12:00pm Lunch (not provided)
  • 1:00pm Return to program – hone your group skills with more games, initiatives and lows
  • 2:00pm Optional high ropes course element
  • 4:30pm Finish activities, final debrief

Activity Descriptions

Icebreakers/energizers

Field games or activities with the purpose of helping  everyone get to know each other, feel comfortable in the environment, and “get people moving”.

Goal setting

The group and individuals decide what their focus is for that day and beyond by defining short- and long-term goals (ex. Better communication).

Initiatives

Mental and/or physical group problem-solving activities done on the ground (outside or indoors) that often involve movable props.These challenges typically require strategizing and thinking outside the box, and may include lifting or  supporting one another.

Low Elements

Permanent structures constructed of wood, wire, tires or rope located on our property that are anywhere from a few inches to a few feet off the ground. They involve both mental and physical challenge on a group and individual level. Low elements may require group members to be lifted off the ground with the support of their team.

High Element

Any activity that requires a safety harness and may be several feet off of the ground. These activities are more focused on individual accomplishment and stepping outside one’s comfort zone, with involvement and encouragement from the group. Examples of high elements include: climbing activities, zip lines, wire bridges over water, static courses (a series of obstacles from tree to tree in a loop course).   Because high elements take much longer than other activities (the majority of the afternoon), groups will be scheduled for just one high each day. High ropes course challenges are not included in half-day programs.

Debrief

After each challenge, there is time to reflect on the process (what happened? what does that mean? what next?), and take from it valuable observations and suggestions for further group development. Debriefing is an important aspect in transference – participants have the opportunity to understand the “big picture”, and how these experiences can be transferred to the real world. At the end of the program, facilitators will also lead a final debrief to provide closure to the day, and encourage participants to continue to reflect on their experience.
