Test your teams’ resourcefulness and ability of team members to coordinate with one another in a challenging natural environment. Get your staff out of their office chairs and nurture your teams' strengths in a natural environment.

Away from the day-to-day workplace, people can show sides of themselves that may not normally be obvious. Different people may excel in different areas. While foraging requires an eye for detail and observation, fire lighting needs patience, determination and persistence to create the right conditions to allow the fire to flourish. Building a shelter, meanwhile, demands innovation and creativity. And crucially, each of the activities require effective teamwork. See which of your team members emerge as a leader in this unique setting!

Programs can be created to meet your needs, either to enhance teamwork or just to have a day doing something different. Possible programmes include a foraging treasure hunt as a team, lighting a fire without matches, cooking over an open fire, making an outdoor sauna, a natural navigation challenge and making shelters.

The instructor will run a debrief at the end of the day to draw out what participants have learnt
and how these lessons can be applied once you have returned to the workplace.
