Some of the Most Popular Activities in this Area
The Camaraderie Quest: Team scavenger hunts have long been a staple in fun team meetings, but the Camaraderie Quest takes this activity to a whole new level. Each quest begins with every team receiving an electronic notebook complete with an app to access the quest, a digital camera, and video recorder. Our facilitators create a custom treasure hunt for every group so companies can offer this activity over and over with a new quest every time. At the conclusion, the facilitator shows a slideshow of all of the pictures and videos from the event (which your company gets to keep)!
The Ace Race Golf Team Building: If your group is competitive, then the Ace Race is a great choice! Participants are divided into small groups who each build a custom miniature golf course hole out of non-perishable food items like canned goods and cereal boxes. Once the entire course is built, the Ace Race begins where each group must race to get a hole-in-one on each and every hole. Before long, there are laughs and cheers throughout the room. At the conclusion, we box up all the items and donate them to a local food bank or food pantry.
Build-A-Bike®: Build-A-Bike® is the original charity team building event, and it is still, by far, the most popular -- for good reason. In this bike building event, participants earn parts of a bicycle, piece-by-piece, by solving puzzles and working together. Once they get that last piece, each group builds a brand-new bike for a needy kid in the area. At the conclusion, children from one of these local charities come rushing into the room to receive their prize. The emotion and enthusiasm in this program is off the charts high, and folks who conduct a single Build-A-Bike® often have us come back over and over again to repeat the process.
Keynote Speeches, Breakout Sessions, and Seminars: Although our instructors specialize in high-energy team activities, each is also an excellent keynote speaker as well. They are experts at delivering team oriented topics, leadership development, and motivational speeches, and because they are also experts at presentation skills, any topic can be tailored to fit any time frame or customized to any audience. So whether you need a 45-minute or hour long keynote, a series of breakout sessions, or half-day or full-day seminars, our speakers can help.
