Team building away days are often viewed by employees as a kind of fun day off. Yes, you have to turn up, and you have to participate in the silly activities, but it’s better than the boring grind of being at work. That’s often the attitude of those who experience team building away days that have not been properly planned and properly carried out.
Sometimes it’s too much for you as a parent to handle all the running about for your children’s activities. I’m fortunate in that two of my daughter’s activities are right after school, and it’s a five minute walk back home, so those Team building activities Singapore have little impact on me. Having to drive her to her art class one night a week and her brother to soccer practice once or twice a week plus a game on Saturdays, isn’t so bad.
Different children will have different preferences for how many activities they’ll take part in. My son is quite happy only taking soccer, for example. My daughter is taking sign language, art and drama, and would add more if I’d let her.
Bandits: Form troops of three or more members. Disguise one person as a bandit for each troop. Each troop gets a Team building activities description of the bandit and a map of the terrain. All troops have to assemble at a predetermined place at the end of the time specified, say after two hours. Within this time they have to capture the bandit. There will be as many bandits as there are troops, so each troop has to use the description of their bandit and capture the right person. This game requires group planning and decision making.
Therefore, you need to find a campground, which provides various activities that meet the interest of the many. If ever, do not rush in heading to the site. Check the site first on what activities are they offering. It is also great if you choose those sites that offer entertainment both in the morning and evening. It is even better if the campground has a website so that you can check for some information especially if you have busy work.
Everyone loves a good game of capture the flag. You can divide your team into 2 groups. Make sure that you put children with people they may not know very well; this encourages new bonds. Once groups have been divided let the children choose a leader; this person will delegate and help the team either win, or lose.
Teams might also have to find something. It could be a scavenger hunt, or a hunt based on riddles. They might have to complete an obstacle course together in order to pick up something at the end. There are also more complex activities that mimic search and rescue missions. Regardless of the activity, the most important part is that all team members contribute in order to reach a mutual goal.
