CORPORATE OUTDOOR TEAM BUILDING (ADVENTURE LEARNING)

Corporate team building has been around for as long as we can remember. All corporate companies have established organisational structures however, humans (personnel) comes in great variations in personalities and world views. Therefore corporate team building is needed from time to time to address corporate issues.

Outdoor Treks and Adventures form of teambuilding takes place primarily in the great outdoors. This is more widely known as Outdoor Experiential Learning. So what is it?

  1. an experiential method of learning by doing

  2. all 5 senses are used

  3. takes place primarily through exposure to the out of doors

In outdoor education, the emphasis for the subject of learning is placed on RELATIONSHIPS: relationships concerning humans and natural resources.

Both these RELATIONSHIPS are key to an organisations to be more efficient in staying ahead in our highly complex and competitive world.

2) Bau Outdoor Challenge (BOC)

Objectives- Teamwork and bonding, motivation, going beyond the comfort zone, physical fitness, communications and fun.

We begin with an event brief for all participants the day before. This takes the form of a PowerPoint presentation. A number of clues would be shown on this brief without informing the participants. Team would be given task sheets, identifying items e.g., headband, lion cloth, T-shirt etc. They are also required to form a team slogan or chant as well as make their own flag.

A number of activity and adventure stations are set-up all over Bau and its surrounding areas. Teams embark on these stations to carry out different tasks. This includes mental challenges, building skills and adventure activities. There maybe one or two food challenges too. All teams gather in the late morning for a mini-sports meet. Teams will be pleasantly surprised that these sports challenges comes with a twist and 'evens out the playing field'. Lunch would be served after the mini-sports meet. This can be catered or packed lunch. The challenges continue after lunch until the cut off time when all teams return to the stadium area for debriefing, result announcement and prize giving, after which all teams return to Kuching.

Teams would be scored on both their performance during the challenges and also in how they carry themselves with team chants, flag waving, encouragement and team work. The scorers are also looking for leadership, organisation, delegation, communications (includes listening skills), and innovation, etc.

We have a team of photographers and video shooters where we would provide the client with photos and video of the event. We would supply iced drinks with lunch, PA system, music and DJs at the stadium event.
