Outdoor Team Building Activities for The Summer Season
Supply List: a few PVC pipes, several feet of rope, a roll of duct tape, a couple of garbage bags or tarps and a pack of beach balls
Ok, have all of the materials gathered? Great. Now build a boat durable enough to carry a team member out to a buoy and then back to shore.
Wait….. What? Is that even safe?
Sure, it might seem a little far-fetched, but trust us – with a little strategy and collaboration, your team can be gliding safely and seamlessly across a body of water.
A great outdoor team building event.
What better way to divert your team from the confines of those office walls than to spend a few hours outdoors in the summer sun?
Lined up along the shore of an ocean, the dock of a lake, or the stairs of a pool, we break your large team into smaller project teams. From here you are given a specific amount of time to complete a raft-like-boat that will carry your team members.
This is where strategy and collaboration are needed – the success of your raft depends on the level of cooperation and fraternization amongst your team. Be sure to be open and to listen to all of your teammate’s ideas and inputs.
Team members who decide to journey across the open tides shouldn’t be afraid to get a little (or a lot) wet, for not every raft is a successfully load bearing one.
However, although a victorious raft might seem like the key to success in this event, the bonds formed and the laughs shared are sure to surpass a sunken attempt.
This event is ideal for:
- The Summer Season
- An adventurous and strategic group
- Project start-ups, conclusions or mid-project motivation
- Annual Meetings
- Retreats and Celebrations

Throughout history many leaders have inspired us to change the world from Gandhi to Alexander the Great. These particular leaders didn’t leave a mark by just hanging out. They led by taking action and inspiring people to follow them.

#1 Carpools, rideshares and biking. Oh my! Going green isn’t just about what you do at home. If you’re spending 40 hours a week at work, that’s likely over 35% of your waking life in an office. You may have noticed that for a team of people, that much time in the office can all add up to a lot of waste.
Administrative Professionals’ Day (also known as Administrative Assistant Day, Secretaries Day or Admin Day) is a day to highlight the important role of secretaries, assistants, receptionists, and other administrative support, which is observed in several countries.
Memorial Day reminds us that summer is close but don’t forget what the true meaning behind the day is! Memorial Day can have different meanings for everyone. Often times, people use this day as a celebration for the arrival of summer. Cookouts, family reunions and a 3-day-weekend are all a blast but they can take away the importance of what the day truly signifies. While you celebrate good food and loved ones, don’t forget to pay your respects to those who have died fighting for our country. Pause, reflect and honor.
