A fast-paced competition that promotes strategic thinking and
problem solving with a variety of fun teamwork activities.
Teams attempt to earn as many points as they can completing teamwork activities in this fast-paced team strategy event. Several challenges with varying point values are arranged throughout the site for teams to overcome at their own pace. Although this outdoor team building activity is presented as a competition, the goal is for each team to earn as many points as they can, so cross-team collaboration is always possible.
Agenda & Activities
Welcome & Warm-Ups (20-30 minutes) Atlanta Challenge staff welcome the participants and set expectations for the event. We then lead some fun warm-up activities that also randomly create small teams. Each team creates a name and slogan which represent their commitment to success and team- work. Our staff hand out supplies to the teams, and review the rules and timeline for the program.
Small Team Intros & Strategy Session (10 minutes) Participants get to know their teammates better, review the event materials, and decide what their strategy will be for getting the most points they can in the teamwork activities.
Teamwork Activities (60-120 minutes) The outdoor team building event area will have several teamwork challenge stations. Most teams will have time to complete 10-15 of them.
Here are some sample challenges:
- Turn Over a New Leaf In this seemingly simple task, the group must create a plan to get everyone from the side of the tarp they are all standing on to the other side without anyone stepping off. This activity requires problem solving skills, communication and effective team involvement.
- Moving Forward This initiative is about getting your team from where they are to where they want to be. Communication will be your team’s best tool for transporting everyone to their goal successfully using synchronized steps and some fancy foot work!
- Key Punch The game is a simulation of the “manufacturing process.” A task will be presented to the group to touch all of the spots in the “production area” and certain rules or “production processes” will be introduced. The ultimate goal is to develop the fastest possible method for touching all of the spots and maintain the highest level of quality control.
- Pathway to Success Your team must discover a new path to success. The team is searching for vital bits of information that will clear their path and help grow the business. Connecting these bits of information is essential to the team’s success. They must avoid all other obstacles. Every team member is an active participant.
Scoring (15 minutes) Teams turn in their score sheets for the teamwork activities and prepare their final team observations.
Team Presentations (10-15 minutes) Teams come together at the end of the outdoor team building program to share their insights about what it takes to be successful when they are responsible for defining success, and how to apply those lessons for greater team accomplishment.
Wrap-up (5 min) We wrap up with a meaningful closing activity and team picture.
