Once again with the arrival of 2016 the Summer Olympics are almost upon us, so what more perfect opportunity to stage a Olympic themed team building event for your staff?
The Olympic challenge will comprise of a series of Olympic / Paralympic inspired and featured activities. How many depends on the length of time you have available, the size of your group and your activity requirements. For all of the activities team members will need to work together to ensure the best possible result for their team.
Included within the activity can be an opening ceremony – for this teams would need to create their national flag and national anthem before performing it to the other countries participating. An optional extra (additional cost) would be to allow teams to customise their national kit (t shirts) with t shirt paint, scissors and accessories.
The Activity Options-
Archery- Participants will be guided through how to shoot from our experienced instructors before taking part in a series of different games. Opportunity for participants to have a go at blind shooting, here participants will be blindfolded whilst shooting and given instructions from a team member; communication is crucial!
