Team Pursuit - Corporate Team Building Activity in Toronto

Hello world, this is Jason Reichart here, with another corporate event update from Canadian Outback Adventures & Events.

We just finished a Team Pursuit event here on Toronto, Ontario with a large group from a top level accounting firm. The event was part of a larger conference which broke up some of their presentations and allowed for participants to get up, move around and actively engage with one another. Using our smartphone app technology, teams competed against one another, attempting to complete as many challenges as they could within the given time frame. The given categories are mental, physical, skill and mystery challenges, teams submitted fun photos, videos, text and trivia responses in order to earn their team points. There were smiles and laughs all around as teams created human tables, unique limbo structures and challenge each other to dance offs. This particular group was very competitive, and did something unique in the award ceremony – they highlighted last place, as well as the top 3 teams. It was all in good fun and even were awarded special ribbons for their performance.

Amazing Chase - Corporate Team Building Activity in Toronto

Hello again, this is Jason Riechart with another corporate event update from Canadian Outback Adventures & Events.

We just finished an Amazing Chase here on Toronto Ontario with a diverse media company. Some participants were even visiting from United States, which allowed for colleagues to interact and strengthen relationships with individuals whom they would not normally interact with. Right from the start, teams were extremely competitive, racing out of the building to complete their first challenge. Little did they know, the first challenge needed to be completed in the very spot that they were running from. This challenge was the first of many road block, route info and detour challenges that the teams needed to complete in various locations across Toronto. One particular challenge was so engaging, that a stranger actually joined one of the teams with no encouragement, whatsoever, and another tried to offer a different team money for their performance. The event came to a close at a small, friendly bar in Kensington market – the perfect spot for teams to rest and relax after a hard fought race.

Escape Room: Jewel Heist - Corporate Team Building Activity in Markham

Hello again, this is Jason Reichart coming to you from Markham, Ontario with another corporate event update from Canadian Outback Adventures & Events.

A group of lawyers on an annual retreat just finished their very own Escape Room – Jewel Heist. With several stolen jewels hidden within the room, teams needed to find clues, solve puzzles, and unlock cases in order to escape the room before jewel thief return. Teams relied on a collaborative effort and skills of each individual in order to successfully solve each puzzle. Things like critical thinking, logic, reasoning, attention to detail, time management and creativity were all crucial to a team’s success.

Play It Forward - Corporate Team Building Activity in Halifax

Hello again, this is Jason Reichert with another corporate event update from Canadian Outback Adventures & Events, coming to you from Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Today we hosted a Play It Forward event for a communications company that was looking to engage and excite their employees. The activity was a part of their national conference, which allowed employees that normally didn’t interact with each other, a chance to get to know each other a little bit better, and have some fun doing it. Not only did they interact with each other, but with the public as well, as teams completed various random acts of kindness challenges all across the city. There were smiles all around as balloons, flowers and hugs were given out to unsuspecting locals of Halifax. An individual who was given a lottery ticket actually even ended up winning some money in the process. All in all, it was a fantastic event with the tremendous feel good factor for everyone involved.

Minute To Win It - Corporate Team Building Activity - Montreal

Hi everyone, this is Nick with Canadian Outback Adventures & Events with another corporate team building event update.

Today we are at a hotel and conference center in Montreal where we hosted a group of a hundred strategic, highly competitive pharmaceutical professionals. Our Minute To Win It event was a great way to kick off their conference and break the ice on day 1. Participants got to run through a wide variety of challenges that let anyone get involved and show their unique strengths. We got the chance to see everyone’s inner animal in “Elephant march”, their balancing capabilities with “Stack Attack”, and their hand-eye coordination in “Marshmallow Mumbo” just to name a few. All of our Minute To Win It games are exciting and cooperative, pulling out the inner child of each and every participant.
