Outdoor team building means different things to different people, ranging from a fun experience in the grounds of an hotel to a challenging event in the adventurous outdoors, or a more significant programme of behavioural evaluation alongside a performance enhancement process during a series of progressive outdoor challenges.
We design outdoor team building events in many differing formats to complement each client’s specific objectives so that our proposed event is pertinent, focused and offers excellent value.
Bespoke Outdoor Team Building Events
Gounds-based Outdoor Team Building
Engage participants in activities or exercises based in the grounds of a hotel or conference centre offering a range of challenges in line with their development objectives. These could also be scattered around the countryside involving participant teams in orienteering between the challenge sites.
Grounds-based outdoor team building events may include a competitive or collaborative theme and can last from a couple of hours to a couple of days. The level of physical challenge is usually relatively low and so the events are entirely inclusive and engaging.
High-Challenge Outdoor Team Building
A challenging outdoor team building event involves a series of adventurous activities and challenges ideally in an inspirational location, often in the form of a journey starting and ending at or close to your chosen venue. Our high challenge outdoor team building events last for 1-5 days, for up to 240 participants and may involve tasks and activities that interweave so that sub-teams meet, collaborate or compete throughout the event.
Scenario-Based Fuzzy Team Tasks
Frontier business situations require personnel who are competent to work with the unknown, to create solutions and generate forward momentum; our fuzzy team building tasks offer the opportunity to play in frontier territory, where many aspects of the business in hand are unknown, new experiences, never before encountered and amongst the chaos lies the future path, to be created or to be found.
These tasks are exceptionally challenging and intended to enable teams to witness and evaluate those behaviours exhibited outside of the normal pattern procedures of work.
Facilitated Outdoor Team Building
Outdoor team building activities work especially well within a facilitated team building process, wherein the challenges are designed to enable personal learning and team development. This format can be used to energise the team, break down communication barriers, provide experiential learning in line with specific training objectives, evaluate team performance, provide a valuable shared challenge as a focus for team development outside normal workplace conditions and enable participants to share an extraordinarily memorable experience contiguous with the team building process.
What Our Customers Say
The Moffat/McColl family had a fantastic experience on their day out with Key Adventures. Al was a great leader and saw us safely through abseiling, raft building and ghyll scrambling. There were some nerves at the start but much laughter throughout and a great sense of achievement afterwards. Even though the weather did it's best to dampen our spirits we all had lots of fun; it really was a superbly satisfying and memorable day!
Thank you Simon and Al for looking after us so well - we would 100% recommend Key Adventures. Take up the challenge, it's so worth it!Family Outdoor Activity Event
Thank you and your team for a fantastic day last Thursday. It has been extremely well received and, despite a few aches, pains and bruises, the workplace is absolutely buzzing this morning. We now have to build on the good work that we have started.Borrowdale Team Challenge
