Holiday Team Building Ideas for your Christmas Party

charity team buildingWe’re starting to get calls about corporate christmas party events that involve team building. We’re only a couple months out – I like the initiative people! For those of you brainstorming event ideas, especially team building event, here’s a few suggestions if you’re in the Orange County or Los Angeles area.

Holiday Minute Madness

Based on the TV show Minute To Win It – your teams will compete in a series of wacky goofy fun challenges! Each challenge will give you team a chance to earn points. It could be as simple as wiggling a cookie from your forehead to your mouth…. with no hands. Or you might be stacking apples higher than your opponent. This is the perfect cocktail hour event and great for venues like Pelican Hill near Newport, Montage in Laguna Beach, or the Hyatt Regency. OR we can come to your meeting site or offices in Irvine, Tustin, Anaheim, Lake Forest, Orange and beyond! Our Minute Madness can be set-up in ANY location. It’s huge laughs and massive smiles!!!

Holiday Reality Rally

Can you catch Santa’s Elves? Think you know all the reindeer names? You’ll be dashing through the streets trying to outwit and outplay your opponents in our version of the Amazing Race. Imagine the Amazing Race and Survivor mashed together with a lot of caffeine and holiday spirit. You’ll need strategy, spirit, and lots of cheer if you want to be the big gift winner! This team building competition plays well with Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, and Balboa.

Be Charitable

We have some great charitable holiday ideas with our food bank and local community partners. Let us know if you’re interested in finding a way to give back for your holiday party this year.

Orange County Team Building – Lawn Bowling with HGST

We had a great time lawn bowling with HGST in Orange County! Having recently been acquired by Western Digital, the goal was to give the staff a chance to get to know one another. Lawn bowling combined with  a gorgeous day and an ocean view was perfect for this team building event. It’s light competition, relaxed pacing, and accessible to anyone regardless of physical strength. We loved how HGST really embraced the spirit of the day by wearing the traditional all white associated with the sport of lawn bowling. After a quick lesson the teams jumped right into the tournament that we’d arranged for them. We finished it out with a large group challenge called a Spider Bowl.

Amazing Race with TJX – Orange County Team Building

team buidlingWe had a great time partnering with TJX Companies! We met them in Laguna Beach at the Surf and Sand Hotel to kick off an Amazing Race  style team building event! It was early but the crew from TJX tackled the rally books we gave them like champions. After some laughs and a brief strategy session they were off and running down Pacific Coast Highway solving clues, finding photos, and answering trivia questions. Thanks TJX!
