Working in a busy office or corporate environment means it’s not always that easy to switch off and get away from the stresses of thing. We can also often lose sight of the fact that we should be working as part of a team.By using effective team building exercises, you can help to change that. It will bring you and your colleagues or employees closer together, making you work as a cohesive unit with benefits that will remain into the future once back in the workplace.
This is just a short selection of our Bear Grylls’ inspired survival activities for team building. We are also able to plan and arrange bespoke corporate events for your company, in a Covid safe and secure manner.
To get your team warmed up, this popular survival activity requires stepping outdoors and moving stealthily like Bear to avoid detection from predators. Your team will then be taught to perfectly rotate an axe and hit the target in one throw. Can you and your team win this exciting challenge?
An important skill for you to master not only for survival in the wilderness, but to hunt for food and even firing a burning arrow into the sky for rescue! Be guided and coached by our team of instructors, using modern equipment before really testing your newly learned skill with improvised ash arrows – will you still hit the target and contribute towards your team's success?
It might not sound like a survival activity at first, but rest assured, you will need to work hard on this as a team as you will always need to tie a knot in the wild. In this task you will need to learn a variety of potential life-saving knots before attempting the giant knot challenge with the whole team to see who wins this event.
If you are looking for a survival team building activity where you get your hands dirty, look no further. This is the perfect survival challenge event for teams that really want to test themselves with something straight out of an army training manual. You will need to cross the gorge commando style on top of the rope using balance, strength and core stability skills to regain your position.
In this high ropes’ activity, watch out instructors use their expertise to create a Tyrolean Traverse. Your corporate team will then have to use a fixed line to cross from one point to another, while wearing a harness. Clip onto the rope and pull yourself and crucial stores across – you might need a head for heights… kind of.
Prepare to get wet in this extreme survival team building exercise as you compete in teams to build rafts and then race the other contestants. Does your team have what it takes both creatively, mentally, and physically to plan and build the perfect floating raft? We will have to see won't we!
A member of your team / crew has been injured. The pressure is now on to use your team's physical strengths, experience and mental skills to treat and carry the casualty to safety. You'll need to make use of what's around you, to build an improvised stretcher and as the patient's condition deteriorates, the race against time (and the other teams) begins to reach the pick-up point as quickly (and safely) as possible.
A fundamental skill which can determine how likely you are to survive when left alone to survive in the great outdoors! You will learn the most effective ways of building and lighting your fire in the wild, and just as importantly; how to put it out again before continuing your journey on... possibly to find food in the next challenge...
To hunt for your food in the wild, you need to keep a low profile. Being aware of your physical shape and silhouette, your smell and sounds you might make while moving slowly will all increase your chances of a successful hunt! Let's see who in your team has got what it takes to capture their prey... or alternatively which team member would simply starve in the wild!
Hunting and catching your food is one thing, but knowing how to prepare and cook it is just as important. Knowing when the fire is ready and how to place your food to make sure it's cooked correctly is vital to ensure you remain in peak physical shape to survive. Without food, you will soon start to waver in your attempt to win any of our Bear Grylls' themed survival team building challenges.
While we do have “off the shelf” team building events available, we also specialise in creating exclusive experiences, which are designed to meet your desired outcomes, with a good dose of Bear Grylls GRIT thrown in!
