Build a More Productive and Successful Team in a Fun Way

Team-building activities provide powerful ways to unite a group, develop strengths, and address weaknesses as well as improve team dynamics, build trust, and facilitate communication.

If you are interested in holding a team-building activity at the Drayson Center, we are here to help! Our experienced staff and facilitators have developed a variety of activities adaptable for virtually any setting or group—young or old, large or small, and across cultures. From relays to tugs-of-war, we'll help you find activities that your co-workers, classmates, or team members will enjoy.

For more information or to schedule a team-building event at Drayson Center, contact Lori Langford or Edwin Jones at the links below.

For a sampling of activities, take a moment to scroll through the photos and read the descriptions of suggested activities below. Not only will your team members appreciate time away from their everyday environment, but they will learn team skills that easily translate to other situations.


Trough-N-Ball Relay
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.
Swamp Crossing
Groups build a “Bridge” using two 2x6 by 8 foot planks. All team members are to organize themselves and get each person across 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!
Shoe Kick
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 first 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.
Tarp Manipulation
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.
