Teambuilding at The Adventure Center at Skytop Lodge
Teams will compete against one another in 3 different areas:
Example: Golf pencil, business card, spa brochure, etc.
Example Clue: “A Target for Robin Hood” Go to the archery range.
Example Questions: “How many quarts of cream does Skytop use in 1 year?” Or “How many sides are on the white gazebo?”
These questions could also be provided by the company to make the trivia questions about your products or services.
For larger groups and smaller groups alike, how about a chili cook-off? Your group is divided into smaller teams and each team is given the same ingredients. You must work together to come up with a tasty mixture. Your chili will then be judged by a panel of Skytop Chefs and the best concoction wins!
Gather your spatulas & icing and work together as a team to design and decorate a cake. Utilize the theme of your meeting (or a product) and incorporate it into this event. Create your own culinary masterpieces under the direction of our Pastry Staff. Your group is divided into teams and given a plain cake and the appropriate tools to create your masterpiece.
Work together as a team to not only build your own boat, but to make it float with your team members. Here is how we do it:
Each group needs to think strategy and planning. 20 minutes will be given to review the materials provided, organize thoughts and draw out the game
plan on the flip chart.
The third and final step is to test the boats. One at a time each group will enter the water on the boat that they built. The boat must float with at least 2 team
members fully on the boat!
Gather after the event to reflect and review. What were the best boat building techniques? How important is it to work together? Does thinking ahead
and planning provide you with the best results?
This is all for you and your team members to find out!
Teams are assigned and asked to come up with a team name and flag. While teams are coming up with their team name and flag, we bring in a table full of all kinds of vegetables. Once names and flags are finished, each team has 1 minute collectively to grab whatever vegetables they think they will need to build a vegetable derby vehicle. They are then given 1 additional minute to barter with other teams for some or one of their items. The teams then begin to build their race car. Teams will be given 20 minutes to build their race cars. There will be a chance to test the cars on the track and make modifications to them. Once the racing begins it is single elimination rounds until we have a winner. The approximate time needed for this is 1-2 hours.
Fun and games you remember from your childhood summer picnics. Three legged races, sack races, tug of war, dizzy bat spin, just to name a few, can put your team through their paces. Find out who has the competitive edge and the best sense of humor. We can customize this event to incorporate props and ideas from your workplace. A great way to laugh, unwind and build your company’s team spirit at the same time.
Take your experience to a higher level on our rock climbing wall. We feature a custom built, 30-foot wall with a real rock look and feel, eight stations from beginner to very advanced, and over 300 removable handholds, plus all the equipment and training you need to make it a top-notch experience.
Shift gears and learn how to conquer an array of challenges, including rock gardens, bridges, drops and banked turns. You’re welcome to use our new Trek mountain bikes or your own. Gear up for a real mountain biking adventure. Join us for an exciting, physical trail ride that takes you around the West Mountain and both on and off the West Rim Trail. We’ll show you some of the best views at Skytop, ride the groomed trail, then go off-trail and challenge your skills on a variety of obstacles.
Skytop Lodge has added the new Barracuda Laser Tag system and partnered with Predator Games to offer a new high tech adventure. We will now be able to offer indoor laser tag year round. We will use the pavilion for an indoor for a weather protected fun experience. Our indoor laser arena will consist of inflatable bunkers that are shaped like crates, oil drums, logs, walls and even an army tank. A fog machine and music sound track to help get the blood pumping will round out some of our new features. Laser tag will be open to all players between 6 and 106 and can be reserved in one hour blocks for with a maximum of 12 players per hour.
Break into teams of no more than 7 and elect a person from each team to scale the rock climbing wall (timed) and retrieve their bag of goodies. Once they get down then they share with their teams the contents.
GPS navigational unit and coordinates (if Geo-caching)
Bag of paintballs
Your first task after climbing is to build a fire using the supplies give as well as supplies that you will find in the general area. The fire will need to be built to a height that will burn through a rope that has been set up buy the staff (also timed).
Once your rope has been burnt through, teams will then proceed to the geo-caching phase if applicable. Once the teams have found all of their locations and bought back the codes they have found we will score each team based on how many they have found and how long they took to find the codes.
