Corporate Recreational Team Building
Whitewater Challengers offers a Team Building Program that takes advantage of the natural learning environment provided by a whitewater rafting experience. This program is ideal for any corporate group that wants to (1) have an enjoyable outdoor experience together, and (2) develop communication and other interpersonal skills that provide long term benefit and value to the group.
Guiding a raft down a whitewater river is a challenge that can be met through determination, creativity, communication and teamwork, and so is expanding your bottom line! Our high-impact experiential learning provides immediate results to your most valuable asset, your employees.
Through this whitewater adventure, teams learn not just in theory, but in practice: innovation, planning, follow-through, leadership and stress reducing fun. Challenges are tangible, and they trigger immediate consequences. Teams learn communication, trust, risk-taking and reaching common goals through team support. Each person will have an opportunity to be the rafting captain and to be a part of the crew.
Success in corporate team building can be immediate and real! Best of all, it can be easily related to the place it counts most: in your work environment. Some of our program options include focus on: Team Building; Dealing with Occupational Changes; Calculated Risk-Taking; Responsibility; Communication; Innovation; Time Management; and Trust. To expose your employees to this special learning experience, simply tell us your goals and allow us to provide a program aimed at enhancing your employees’ work performance, and improving your bottom line!
