Challenging Outdoor Games

Jon Williams

Calling school aged youth! Experience the fun of teambuilding activities! Story lines and random objects will be used as you work together as a group to beat a challenge. There’s no need to worry if your group is unsuccessful at “the goal” because knowledge, skills and fun can certainly be gleaned from the experience. Each session is organized to generate opportunities to learn and use teamwork, communication, decision making, leadership skills, and trust. Sessions are fun and fast paced and most include a short, age appropriate debrief to shed light on those “aha” moments.

Two sessions: Grades 3-6 & Grades 7-12
