group cheering on the beach

Finding Value at the Beach With Team Building

What can a group take away from an employee outing playing in the surf and sand? When teams are looking for a summer team building activity in Los Angeles or Orange County we LOVE recommending our Beach Olympics. This spirited competition challenges staff to work together in unique ways leading to improved communication and office engagement. So what can you expect from your team during a Beach Olympics?

Creative Problem Solving
Our challenges aren’t just simple lawn games you’ve probably played at a dozen family picnics. Each event will require players to think outside the box in mastering the zany activities we set up. When our facilitators explain the objective of the game we set conditions restricting players from the more obvious, simple solutions. For instance, when we play soccer Our cleats are 3 person wooden skis that teams use to travel down the field. Using our skis, team member must develop a strategy for navigating the field and scoring goals. It’s unconventional and deliciously challenging.

Team Spirit
Don’t worry, nobody is going to start singing “Kumbaya.”  We encourage team bonding through friendly competition. By randomly placing participants in teams we circumvent cliques and forge new connections. Even those who don’t think they’re the “hoo rah!” type get caught up in the cheering. Each round of the Beach Olympics gets teams closer to the final Gauntlet, a fast paced relay style race for victory that has everyone laughing and rooting for the top teams.

Uncovering Hidden Talent
When you remove labels and classifications from your staff, you’ll find them performing in interesting ways. Employees who are normally quiet and reserved might step forward and lead the group during challenges. An event like this allows people to demonstrate aptitude in a areas like leadership, creative thinking, management, and connection. Watch your team closely and you may find your next product manager or thought leader.

At the end of the event our event lead will review the action with your group. What were the higlights? What did your team excel at? How does this apply to what you do in the office? What can we use to be successfull moving forward? We’ll help your team recognize the value and discuss how to apply it to the office.
