Top Five Corporate Team Building Activities for Parks

Based on the popular TV show, Survivor, Corporate Castaways transforms your teammates into tribemates. Groups take on a series of mental and physical challenges to see who can outwit, outplay, and outlast the competition.

What makes Corporate Castaways great for parks?

Ideal for large natural spaces, Corporate Castaways offers a variety of outdoor challenges inspired by the TV series, Survivor.

This was a superbly facilitated event! Outback Team Building & Training was a lot of fun and provided a great on-site team to help encourage the teams. We had a wonderful time. 10 out of 10!— Microsoft (Corporate Castaways)


2. Cardboard Boat Building Challenge

Make waves at your event with the Cardboard Boat Building Challenge. In this activity, teams must work together to build boats out of nothing but cardboard, and test them in the water to see if they’ll stay afloat.

What makes Cardboard Boat Building Challenge great for parks?

This event requires a body of water for teams to test their cardboard vessels in, so parks with access to lakes or the ocean work perfectly.

Our entire team thought the team building activity was excellent. The timing was great, and your team was very professional and on point. Thank you for the assistance, and when the time and need arises, we will definitely call and/or recommend your organization.— The Westin Bonaventure (Cardboard Boat Building Challenge)


3. CI: The Crime Investigators

An interactive activity, CI: The Crime Investigators gets teams working together to follow evidence, uncover hidden clues, and, ultimately, solve a crime.

What makes CI: The Crime Investigators great for parks?

Forests, fields, beaches, and large green spaces make a great backdrop for exciting and challenging crime scenes.

It was a blast! Even the ones skeptical at first came around and had a great time. It was intense but great. Your team made it fun for us all. Going in we were not sure what we were doing but once evidence was gathered and reviewed, it all comes together.— Crane (CI: The Crime Investigators)


4. Eagle Glider Construction Challenge

Work together with your colleagues to build eagle gliders out of raw materials, and watch your finished products soar into the sky.

What makes Eagle Glider Construction Challenge great for parks?

Wide open spaces make an ideal location for this event. In a park, your team will be able to truly “stretch their wings” as they test their eagle gliders and watch them fly.

The event was very engaging, and not cheesy. It was the right amount of time and the facilitators had everyone involved. That is an awesome accomplishment, considering the diverse group attending the meetings. Great job!— Charah Inc. (Eagle Glider Construction Challenge)


5. Custom Event

You and your team can take part in a custom team building event designed around your group’s goals, location, or theme! Our team works with you to bring your vision to life.

What makes a custom event great for parks?

The sky’s the limit when you work with our team to create a custom event. Parks offer endless possibilities for your customized team building experience.

We had one of the best team building experiences we've EVER had! It was a blast and your team made it all come true!— Safelite (Custom Event)
