Outdoor Ideas for Team Building

Activities that do not sound like a chore


Before planning an outdoor extravaganza, extract feedback from your team and decide on key locations where the activities could be relished in full glory. Each activity should be planned around the common goals—to venture out and explore, enjoy as a group and help employees come out of their comfort cocoon and interact. 


Arrange a Scavenger Hunt

You will be spoilt for choices when deciding on specific scavenger hunt games. In corporate life, scavenger hunts are sure to inspire people to wield creative and analytical thinking processes to detangle real-life obstacles. It is pretty fun to stumble upon different formats and ideate new challenges for haunts to keep them relevant to all age groups and professional backgrounds. Including pop culture trivia, QR codes, GPS check-ins and open-ended questions will retain the fun and interest of participants throughout the session. 


 Throw Well-Planned Obstacles

 When you let members of a team traverse through obstacles together, you are allowing an opportunity for people with differences to come together, collaborate, brainstorm and show team spirit to survive and wean for the team. The shared joy and enthusiasm ensuing from such winning sessions are priceless. Besides, such a diverse array of obstacles rekindle cohesion within a team where members pair up with each other and strategise to arrive at feasible solutions. If teams previously had hostility among members, outdoor adventures could be a fun way to resolve it.


Set Up a Camp 

 A retreat into the wilderness works amazing especially after a hectic and exhausting session at work. When selecting a location be sure to pick one that has the resources to offer a diverse range of activities—photography, boating, hiking, trailing, picnic, BBQ and impromptu fun sports such as paintball competition or Frisbee. Each activity has a celebratory vibe and can instantly sparkle up positivity and energy in the team. Plan the series of events in a way that let members work in a great tandem and commendable coordination exercising their communication skills and creative spree. Employees should not be confined within a space or restricted from planning something out-of-the-box. #


Fire Speed Networking

The ultimate ice-breaking activity, speed networking requires participants to pair and converse impromptu on different topics for a couple of minutes before they switch partners and continue the same with other team members belonging to different departments. Desert island game remains an evergreen favourite and could be a thrilling party starter!  


Team-building activities could be wholesome and create lifetime worth’s memories to cherish.
