In order to boost morale and output in the workplace, team building exercises can do wonders. It's crucial to have a group of people who get along well together, and what better way to do that than by building relationships outside of your weekly team meeting?

Traditional team building events from camp days of yesteryear such as paintball, clay pigeon shooting, and archery seem outdated for the dynamics of some workplace teams now, so companies are always looking for ideas that are a little more creative and โ€œout of the boxโ€ for their organizationโ€™s annual get-togethers.

In this blog, weโ€™ll feature some in-person activities as well as virtual and hybrid experiences perfect for any teams trying to build connections. Keep reading for some team building activities that, frankly - donโ€™t suck!

Depending on the time of year you are planning your event and if you're working with in-person team members, you may get out of the conference room with an outdoor team building activity:ย 

Scavenger Hunt ๐Ÿƒ

Scavenger hunts are fantastic because they require participants to think outside the box, work together, and utilize good communication skills. Reward your team with a fun QR code scavenger hunt as part of their recreation and to help facilitate connection between team members.

You can even offer a prize to the winning team to encourage some friendly competition!

For remote teams ๐Ÿ‘‰ Try a virtual spin on scavenger hunts and icebreakers with Show and Share Waterย Cooler. In this team building activity, based on unique prompts, participants will share stories and pieces of themselves through found objects around the home.

Obstacle Course ๐Ÿชœ

Outdoor obstacle courses are fun team building activities for coworkers. Participants are encouraged to use their teamwork skills to complete the course's various mental and physical challenges. You may set up a series of tires that teams of two or three must step into in tandem, or you could have individuals perform a series of agility and balancing tasks, such as walking planks, that need them to do so with great care.


Kayaking or Canoeing ๐Ÿ›ถ

Paddling in a kayak requires coordination and cooperation from its participants in order to move in the same direction and avoid hazards. Kayaking is an exciting and novel way to experience nature throughout the summer months while enjoying some team bonding. Plus, it's perfect for small groups!


Geocaching ๐Ÿ“ฒ

Geocaching is a terrific way for groups to bond while getting out and experiencing nature. A GPS gadget or smartphone can help teams find "caches" placed anywhere from park lawns to wooded areas in this exciting interactive game. Caches can only be located if team members work together to analyze clues and coordinate their search. As groups work together to decipher clues and solve location challenges, geocaching promotes teamwork and problem-solving abilities in addition to being a fun way to get outside and see the world.


Movie or Theatre Screenings ๐ŸŽซ

Sharing a presentation of a classic movie or a famous musical can be a great bonding experience. You could even opt for a sing-along showing to make it an interactive experience if your office is full of theater buffs. End with a Q&A discussion of the movie or production watched to make it an educational activity that inspires reflection and team sharing.


If you're working with remote teams, these virtual team building experiences may be more up your alley:ย 

Murder Mystery ๐Ÿ”

Invite your team to a party with a mystery to solve. Murder Mystery parties provide intrigue, excitement, and the perfect setting for using problem-solving skills in a creative way. You could even provide rewards to the first team member to solve the mystery or design unique medals for everyone's participation to make it unforgettable. Activities that improve team morale, such as murder mysteries, foster closer bonds between coworkers.

Additionally culinary workshops showcase many cultures and cuisines, offering a special way for groups to connect over a shared love of food.
