Outdoor Team building Events

Did someone say ‘team building’? But before you curl up in a little ball and wish for the ground to swallow you up due to the utter dread of group participation, consider this: you might actually have fun on one of these events.

Plus, there are lots of outdoor team building activities everyone can get involved with – here are 50 of our favourites:

Company 5K

The Udemy blog is chock-full of outdoor team building events. How about a company 5K, for example? You can train together and then join in each other’s victory (when you cross the finishing line) together.

 

 

Boot Camp

Why not organise your own outdoor boot camp? All you need is some gym equipment – and some stamina!

Usually taking place against the picturesque backdrop of a Scottish castle or country house, this is a team building event with a difference.

Head to the country for a mix and match day of your favourite field-based pursuits. Why not try quad biking, for example, followed by clay pigeon shooting?

 

 

 

Jog Your Memory

Here’s a free outdoor team building event we found on the Livestrong site. Jog Your Memory sees someone gather 20 items commonly found in nature – a leaf, a nut, a berry, a twig – before arranging the items on a table. Colleagues are then divided into equal groups and one person from each group can view the items at a time. Everyone has a good look at the items for 15 seconds, and with two minutes on the clock, the teams are invited to write down everything they remember. They’ll then submit their answers, with the team who has remembered the most items bagging a prize.
