Teams will have 2 hours to design and build their very own life size F1 car using only materials given to them. Each group must create a team name and a logo as part of the challenge task. 

Back To School

Some people say that school days are the best days of your life. Our Back to School Sports Day is a fantastic, fun and energetic team building activity, ensuring full participation and some very silly behaviour! An action packed event that is both amusing and challenging for participants and highly entertaining to watch. After a welcome introduction hosted by our very strict Headmaster your delegates will be divided into teams and will rotate through fast and furious activities and try to gain as many points as possible before rotating to the next activity station. We can also provide superb themed evening entertainment which the ‘big kids’ will remember with a smile!

Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting

Laser clay pigeon shooting can be played indoors or outside. Brand new MK3 laser clay laser clay pigeon shooting system. The players use a realistic shotgun to fire an infra-red laser beam at clays launched from an automatic clay launcher. When the shotgun trigger is pulled, the control module scoreboard generates the shotgun “BANG” And when a player hits the clay target it reproduces the sound of a breaking clay.

As with any sport, there are different levels and classes of Laser Target enabling it to be played by everyone. Each round consists of 10 clays being launched and up to 5 people can shoot at the same target.

Whacky Races

A light hearted fun alternative to ‘It’s a Knockout’ and a bit crazier than the classic old school sports day. The Wacky races packages is designed to be fun, encourage team work and feature silly games. The event comes complete with all games equipment, popup tent, quality outdoor PA system, professional lively host, time keeper, lane markers, bunting and prizes for the winning team. 

Be A Pilot For A Day

Have you ever wanted to experience what it’s actually like to fly an aeroplane? If you are looking for a truly unique and bonding experience, then this is an activity your colleagues will never forget. Experience two take-offs and landings and fly the aeroplane yourself! Land Away Double is designed as a unique double value introduction. It comprises of two ‘hands on’ training flights with an instructor in one of our modern dual controlled training aircraft.

You fly from one of many airfields throughout the UK to another airfield (weather permitting Isle of Wight) land and have lunch with your instructor where you can question him or her about all aspects of flying. A comprehensive pre-flight briefing and after flight discussion complete this all inclusive lesson, designed to be ‘flying fun’ as well as counting towards a future Private Pilot’s Licence.

Bushcraft Experience

A walk in the woods will never be the same again… Embark on a fascinating journey of discovery and survival with one of our bush craft experts. Could you really survive in the wild if you had to? Maybe 24 hours, or perhaps 48, but what if days turned into weeks, would you know what to do with just the most basic of materials?

This is a totally practical survival course and could prove to be invaluable if you found yourself in such a situation. We’ll show you what initial steps to take, using what you have to hand, how to prioritise, how to plan for recovery and how to survive the long haul. This day or day and night experience (POA) covers fire starting, building a temporary shelter, improvised survival items, catching and killing for survival and the basics of what is safe to eat in the wild. (Please note that this activity is run at a set location in Wiltshire).

Country Pursuits

Our Country Pursuit days are highly popular. Offering an exciting mix of unusual outdoor pursuits, we combine a range of driving, shooting and animal handling activities to create a superb 1 hour or full day activity. The activities are designed to be fun, challenging and unusual, and are the perfect way to develop relations with your colleagues and bond with your group. This event is normally run as a competition, with teams marked on ability, leadership and motivation.

White Water Rafting

Nothing comes close to the excitement and fun of a Rib Treasure Hunt. The Ribs are an adrenaline high, thrilling experience for both novices and experienced sailors alike. A Rib Treasure Hunt is an excellent way of placing groups, whether small or large, into a focused but fun team building environment. Rib Treasure Hunt teams have both land and sea clues to be solved in several locations. The teams are issued with a boat and skipper, maps, charts, clues, stop watches, Polaroid cameras, and tasks to complete.

The winning team will have best grasped the value of allocating and completing tasks according to team members’ strengths and weaknesses as well as showing the greatest creativity.

Filming Days

Lights, Camera, Action… Welcome to the billion-dollar world of advertising, movies and music. Extraordinary budgets, exotic locations and gorgeous people. We offer three different filming activities – ‘MTV Video Awards’, ‘On Location’ and ‘Commercial Break’. Divided into teams of up to 12 delegates you must create either a music video, classic movie trailer or advert for your company or product.

With a $100m filming budget, full prop shop and on-site filming consultants the heat is on for teams to create the best short film. We offer two options – one where teams film using camcorders provided, or alternatively we provide professional camera crews for each team (POA). After the activity we can host a spectacular Oscar Awards Ceremony (POA).

Giant Bridge Build

This project will require delegates to focus on working together and to apply the necessary skills in order to come up with the solutions to construct the bridge – planning, creativity and teamwork. The team will be required to construct a 36ft bridge from scratch across imaginary water, which represents the groups’ business objective. The build will highlight the different characteristics required from the team members to achieve their goal. This allows the team to reflect on the role they played and the skills they implemented during the construction process.

Greenjackets Battalion

This is your opportunity to become a soldier in action on The Corporate Battlefield using our unique and purpose built MOD infrared training system. No masks – No goggles – No bruising. All combatants are issued with a realistically sounding semi automatic SA80 style rifle. The rifle, which fires an invisible (and safe) beam to a range of 35 metres, is aimed at the opposition’s helmet. If on target, the opposition becomes “temporarily wounded” and after a “quick fix” at the Field Hospital they are re-activated and returned to combat.

Ammunition boxes are located on the Battlefield where rifles can be reloaded at any time. All combatants will be issued with DPM coveralls. We would recommend they wear sturdy walking boots or tough trainers. Our home base is near Chippenham in Wiltshire, two minutes on the north side of junction 17 of the M4, however we can bring the battle to your venue:

Polo Experience

Working with our partners at The Royal Berkshire Polo Club located at junction 6 off the M4, the school gives you the unique opportunity to come to the stunning and prestigious Polo Club and not only watch polo but actually learn all about the sport and have a go yourself. Whether you have ridden a horse before or not you can now try out this exhilarating and elite sport. The ponies are suitable for novices as they have been selected for their quiet nature and they are schooled to respond only to the rider’s commands. Think of them as the guide dogs of the equine world, they have a job to do and they just get on with it, leaving you to concentrate on your swing, the ball, that goal and of course how good you look!

Build A Raft 

Raft Building is an exciting team-building activity. Build your own raft and testing those knot tying skills, then race it on the lake! This activity uses ropes, wooden spars and plastic barrels to test initiative, develop leadership skills and encourage co-operation and teamwork. Dragon boating is a popular activity.

These Chinese-style boats take between 16 and 20 paddlers and are steered by a qualified helm who will provide all necessary training. Buoyancy aids must be worn but this activity is programmed as a ‘’dry’ session… splashing excepted! We recommend a minimum group size of 12 delegates per boat to provide exciting racing! (Please note that this activity is run at a set location in Sandhurst, Berkshire).

Sailing

Sailing Events can range from a quiet sail around the Solent to a full on regatta or a treasure hunt on board some of the finest luxury motor yachts available on the South Coast.

We sail from Southampton, Portsmouth, Lymington, Bucklers Hard, The Hamble, Poole and Cowes. The yachts are fully crewed with a skipper and hostess who will look after you during your day.Participants are free to relax and enjoy the experience or to take a more active role either at the helm or winch grinding , all under the watchful eye of your Skipper of course !
