Boot Camp - Outdoor EventsBUILD YOUR CUSTOM EVENT
Find out who has what it takes to survive our team building boot camp! Delegates will be taken out of their comfort zones and set a series of challenges in a military-style environment. Team work, attention to detail, participation and collaboration are all essential to survive this challenging but fun event.
Who is prepared to follow the rules and cooperate with colleagues and who has a hard time with authority? This is a great way to gauge group behaviour.
Illuminating, demanding and absorbing, Boot Camp will sort the privates from the officers.
How does it work?
Guests will get a greeting with a difference courtesy of our suited and booted military events coordinators. One minute they'll be lounging around and the next they'll be up and standing to attention as our officers burst into the room and give them a loud awakening!
Delegates will be supplied with army uniform and given 10 minutes to get suited up for kit inspection with the sergeant.
Here's hoping their time management skills are up to scratch! Penalties will be incurred for lateness, incorrect attire and sloppy presentation.
After kit inspection, teams will be created and will jog to the first activity station whilst chanting their team song under the watchful eye of an officer.
The challenges they will face are designed to develop communication and collaboration skills. We've thrown in a few random tasks to keep teams on their toes! These could be sprung on teams at any point during the day so they'll need to look sharp.
Even lunch is a team work challenge. When hunger strikes, teams will need to work together quickly and efficiently to prepare food for the troops using military rations, mess tins and heaters. It's a great way to instil the importance of individual member roles, time management and resourcefulness.
If they don't finish lunch they must either leave it or take it along to the next location.
Boot Camp finishes with a debrief session where teams will discuss their experiences and be reminded of the skills they have learned.
