JUST PLAIN FUN


Group Recreation Information

Golf Hole-In-One Construction Challenge:

We’ve added a little twist to this game – you build your course before you play! Group is divided into construction teams & are instructed to use a box of supplies at each to build one miniature golf hole. This is a project that emphasizes creativity, communication, collaboration, teamwork & of course FUN!

Madcap Putting:

This nutty putting activity is the perfect way to bring golfers & non-golfers together on fair playing turf. Participants will engage in a series of short putting holes - but here’s the catch . . . each hole is supplied with a different putting instrument that must be used at that hole. These zany clubs may include a tennis racket, croquet mallet or cue stick. Six to nine holes of varying lengths based on group size & time frame.

Build a Boat & Hope It Floats Challenge:

This fun, active team activity requires your group to process a problem, strategize the solution or outcome & communicate using all the team members’ input & work together to complete the project. Sound like a successful day at the office? The solution: Each team must build a boat that will support one member while paddling the length of the pool & back. 

Amazing Race Challenge:

We know that all groups’ participants have diverse interests & abilities so finding the right teambuilding event can be its own challenge. This event takes into consideration all these diversities & we guarantee your group will be talking about it long after the event ends. The activity will not be divulged, but the clue will indicate whether it is a physical or mental challenge. Each team must strategize how to get to each location, how to deploy their team to accomplish all the activity stations, find all of the scavenger hunt items & complete their mental challenge sheets. Did we mention there is time limit? All aspects of this event are scored to ultimately lead to a final score for each team.

Photo Scavenger Hunt:

Each team will be issued a digital camera & a limit on the number of photos taken during the scavenger hunt. Clues will lead to destinations in & around La Cantera. Each group must take a photo of their team at that location. Creativity & team spirit are taken into consideration!

Win It in a Minute:

In this fast paced event, teams will compete in seemingly easy yet adrenaline pumping challenges that take a minute or less to accomplish. Challenges include: Nose Dive, Velcro Head, Suck it Up, A Bit Dicey, Caddy Stack, Hangnails, In Your Face, Pantyhose, Boomerang, Rapidfire.

Pit Stop Challenge:

This fast paced challenge is a combination of mental & physical challenges that can only be solved using the talents of the entire group. This adventure, much like your business, will span great distances, present beatable obstacles & test you with mindboggling riddles. Every challenge has a winnable solution that will create a team spirit!

Lego Competition:

Lego isn’t just about fun & games…working with Lego helps enhance creative & critical thinking skills while getting to act like a kid again.

Support Our Troops:

Want to give back to those that have dedicated their lives to protecting ours? This is the activity for you! You can challenge yourselves by setting a number of packages to complete as a group or you can make it into a competition to fill more than the team beside you. The care packages help enhance the morale & well-being of those troops around the world serving on the front lines. 

MIND & BODY

Brain breaks increase productivity & give us all a chance to take our minds off of the task at hand and give us a chance to refocus & regroup. Sitting for long periods of time also make you stiffen up & lose focus so getting up & moving or giving your brain a break during meetings or conferences will help attendees with retention & focus. Discuss options with our Recreation Specialist.

Brain Breaks:

Our Recreation team will bring in a variety of games to get your brain moving in a different direction & give it a break from the contents of the conference or meeting. These games are intended to be played for a short time & can be done once or over several breaks. Great option for large or small groups.

Stretch Breaks:

Getting up & moving is important especially if you have been sitting for some time. Our team will take over your meeting space & get everyone moving & refocused. These breaks are also designed for a short time frame.
