Delphi's Team Challenge program has been designed to promote team building and positive group development. Teams attempt to solve various problems encouraging their full participation, interaction, communication and team work. During each task members are required to contribute in different ways. Each challenge demands varied skill sets, some physical, some mental while some require creative solutions. This activity is suitable for all fitness and ability levels as everyone can provide different skills or solutions towards the completion of each challenge. There is also the element of competition as you will be against a rival team and that always creates interesting outcomes as each person assumes, sometimes, surprising roles within each group.
Example of team building activities:
Easy Does It
Goal: Retrieve sunken container from the central area.
The team must use props provided to create a rolling platform to pull a member of the group towards the central area. Water must be taken to fill the container to retrieve the ball. A number of trips are required to fill the container.
Goal: Pitch a tent as a team
Half the team are suffering from snow blindness (blindfolded) and the other half from frostbite (not allowed to use hands). They must work together to pitch the tent within a certain time limit.
Goal: The whole team and equipment must cross the enclosure; the team with the most water left in their bucket wins.
Three planks per team are used to cross the enclosure using the stepping-stones provided. Certain rules restrict how the planks may be used.
Goal: The whole team must get to the other side of the spiders web
Only one team member may pass through each hole in the spider’s web. As the easier lower holes are eliminated the team must work together to safely lift individuals through higher, more difficult holes.
Goal: Retrieve the golden egg from the lake
The team must use the props supplied to retrieve the egg, being careful to avoid getting wet.
