What happens when teams of co-workers are dropped in the “wild” and left to compete in a series of physical and mental challenges? Whether it be Olympic, Survivor or any customizable theme, this summer camp inspired lawn event has strategy-building, teamwork, and lots of fun in store as teams scramble to be champions.
How does it work?
Our Host gathers all participants together to give an overview of the competition and break up the group into teams. Teams are asked to choose a leader, and are informed that they will be competing head-to-head against the other teams in an array of fun physical challenges.
Next, it’s time to come up with a team name. Participants dig into their sack of materials to create a team flag that conveys the spirit of their team. Not only are these flags team totems, but they’re also hot commodities—other teams will take any change to steal flags from their competitors. Once the flags are completed, the opening ceremony commences with a parade of the flags and the competition begins!
Teams rotate through a series of head-to-head challenges that test members’ mental and physical strength, as well as teamwork and strategy. Facilitators award points at the end of each challenge.
After all the challenges have been performed, the Host announces which teams have earned the most points thus far. These finalists compete in an epic obstacle course that calls on participants to go all out with their strength, smarts, and creativity. The winning team will be the one whose flag is left standing.
Camp Basics engages participants’ athletic and communication skills in a fun, high-energy atmosphere. Participants hone their creativity and time-management acumen as they work together to meet the demands of each challenge, and get a real-time lesson in the challenges and benefits of collaborating under pressure.
