Grangewaters outdoor education centre
Grangewaters is a great place to take part in team building activities.
Examples of activities are listed below. We also offer a range of ice-breakers and table-top problems.
|Bomb disposal||Apply skills and ideas together to remove items from the danger zone.|
|Ladder river crossing||Get your team to the other side of a 'river' using nothing more than a series of planks.|
|Nuclear reactor||Pull together to lift rods out of the 'reactor' and into safe containment.|
|Sensory trail||Cover your eyes and trust your team members to guide you up, down, under, over and along a trail.|
|Spider's web||Solve problems to decide the order in which team members should move through the spider’s web.|
|Ski walk planks||The team steps onto two large skis, with one foot on each ski. By holding ropes and communicating with each other, the team must start to walk a set route. Timing and teamwork is crucial for success.|
|Tim's magic maze||The whole team must control the motion of a ball through a table-top maze.|
|Towers of Hanoi||In this challenge you must follow the rules and work together as team to move a tower of foam discs from one location to another.|
A typical 90-minute session would include a couple of ice-breaker activities and some tasks involving fixed equipment.
Opportunities to talk about aspects of teamwork – such as communication, cooperation, leadership and trust – will help the group decide in which ways they need develop and the tasks they should try to complete next.
