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
