Activities For Your Team
If you are interested in planning a team building event at the Drayson Center, we are here to help! Our experienced staff have created a group of activities that can be used in virtually any setting and customized for your group.
The object of this relay race is to control a rolling ball from one trough to another trough as the ball is moved from point A to point B on a course across the field. Each team will use one 10ft. trough, two 5ft. troughs, and a 90degree coupler to accomplish the challenge.
Groups build a “Bridge” using two 2x6 by 8 foot planks. All team members are to organize themselves and get each person axross the “Swamp” without stepping into the swamp. If anyone steps into the swamp during the trip over, all the “Swamp Travelers” on the plank must return back to “Start” and begin again!
Each team member has their turn at standing behind the kicking line to see how far they can kick off their shoes, one at a time. Points are scored by landing your shoes in the zones that have different point values. The total score is then added together.
Olympic Torch Relay
The fisrt runners at the starting line are given the “Olympic Torches” to race to the other end of the field and make the exchange to another team member. They in turn race it back, make the exchange, and the race continues until all team members have carried the torch.
Use a 12x12 tarp for 8 to 12 people. That challenge is for the team to fold it into different shapes with everyone staying on the tarp, without stepping off. Once the folds are completed by all teams, the challenge continues with each team returning the tarp to the starting position before the next challenge is given.
