as they endeavor to survive as a team.

Overview

The Survivor Games are a collection of wild and action-filled events that will have your group laughing and strategizing together. Games such as Terrible Tiki, Monsoon Monolith and Coconut Battle make this a unique and memorable event. Each tribe competes for their team honor, while trying to eliminate-or conspire with-their opponents! The winning tribe is gauged by overall success, not elimination, which keeps everyone involved right up to the ending ceremony. Afterwards, we talk about being a valuable team player and being committed to doing what ever it takes to help your team to survive.

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 of 8-10 people.

Tribe Up! (10 minutes) Each team creates a name and war-cry which represent their commitment to success and teamwork. They also create a team flag that they proudly carry throughout the games, and get to take with them at the end of the day.

Team Games (60-180 minutes) Some possibilities include:

  • Monsoon Monolith: Teams build the tallest tower they can before the other team(s), but they must also transport their tower several feet without it falling down.
  • Coconut Battle: Food is scarce in the jungle, as teams discover while they battle over a limited supply of “coconuts” to provide for their team.
  • Flamingo Fight: Teams outlast each other while standing on “stumps” on one leg, while they throw their arsenal at the opposing team.
  • Tiki Take-Down: Teams use blow guns to fire at the opposing team’s collection of tikis, while avoiding getting tagged by the other team (think jungle laser tag).
  • Voodoo Volley: Teams defend their island from the incoming hexed items launched by another team, while sending them back as fast as they can.
  • Knot So Fast: Teams tie a series of knots while trying to beat the clock, and the other team. Sometimes the rope is rather large!

Half Time Show (optional) (20-30 minutes) To ensure that no one gets over heated, we take a short, entertaining break half way through the program. Each team develops a short Jungle-Fever themed show for the group.

Voting (on-going) After each challenge, teams earn ballots instead of points. They use these to vote against other teams throughout the event. At the end, the team with the fewest votes against them wins.

Scoring & Medal Presentation (10 minutes) Jungle awards are presented to the surviving team based on how everyone voted. We also acknowledge the high scoring team for each game.

Wrap-Up (10-15 minutes) The Tribes come together at the end to share their insights about what it takes to be a successful warrior (team player) and how they need to work together to be a successful tribe (team).
