It may be at work, at school or on the sports field; we have all experienced the challenges and thrill of working with other people towards a common goal. Taking time to reflect on the team experience through experiential adventure provides tangible and immediate results for individual and team growth. Active provide four distinctive types of event tailored for team development, however these events can be modified and tailored to suit you exact needs.

Adventure Challenge – Single day event based around an orienteering course using map reading skills to find your way through a course, en route facing problem solving tasks!

Shipwrecked – A treasure hunt to find your way back after being marooned on an desert island!

Lost! – A Day event where your team will be tested physically and mentally to get themselves to safety after getting lost in the hills.

X Adventure – Competitive team event involving orienteering, problem solving tasks, canoeing, cycling, walking, rock climbing and abseiling.

We use the challenge of the outdoor environment and a series of strategic challenges to focus on problem solving, team work, brain storming, building self confidence, strategy development, decision making, reviewing skills, resolving conflict, establishing trust, etc. Builds valuable skills for your teams’ success! These courses are both physically and mentally challenging and can be pitched at the level you require to achieve your needs.
