This is the original build a bear team building event! Each team has puzzles to solve, codes to decipher, and secrets to unlock in order to acquire the resources that they need (part by part) to build a series of images-10custom teddy bears.

Participants divide into small work teams. Each group must complete a series of games/challenges to earn team points. For the final thirty minutes or so, teams use their accumulated points to purchase all parts and accessories necessary to build a high-quality Rescue Bear. Even the bear assembly itself is served up as friendly competition, with groups racing to complete yet another novel but highly engaging task.

This Charity Challenge is fun and altruistic. It benefits your team and the children who receive the teddy bears and the blankets. It’s a win-win team building event.  The possibilities are endless but the outcome is always the same – a group of happy children and proud team of employees. 

*  Great ideas come from our clients and you can benefit.  Ask about adding blankets to the challenge and the donation – bears and blankets – warmth inside and out.

“We would like to thank the TeamBonding crew for making this such a successful and wonderful event.  The facilitators were so friendly, helpful and positive!  Everyone that I spoke to had a great time and we really enjoyed getting to know each other and creating something for young patients.  It was a fabulous way to kick off the first evening of our event! It was such a pleasure to work with you.  I hope we will have other opportunities in the future.”
