If you’re trying to decide which summer team building event is right for your people, you may want to consider an outdoor active team building event.

Getting your team outdoors for some wet and inflatable fun could be just the thing to reignite some company passion and increase team morale.

Whilst there are occasions where business-led team building events are more useful and serve to improve vital skills required in any company, there is also a time for some fun and frolics without a serious agenda or trying to impress anyone.

Active team building is fantastic for building confidence, increasing trust and allowing everyone to let their hair down in a neutral setting, where for once rank and management level are not important.

This level playing field allows bridges to be built between colleagues and helps to break down any perceived barriers.  If you mix up the teams with people from different parts of the company, active team building events can help to improve working relationships between different departments.  If you choose to have departments form their own teams, then a little bit of healthy competition will add some spice to the occasion.

Choose from retro favourites such as It’s A Knockout or Battle of the Superstars, or take yourselves way back with our School Sports Day inspired active team building event.  Whichever event you choose you can be guaranteed that everyone will have a blast, and most will probably get rather wet!

To get even more out of your summer team building event, why not insist that everyone comes in fancy dress, or better still, link the occasion with a chance to raise money for your favourite charity.

The British summer is short and sweet so you need to act fast if you want your teams to participate in an outdoor team building event this year.

Here at Accolade Corporate Events, we have clients ask us to organise a variety of occasions for them, from very corporate events such as conferences and team building events to more light-hearted days such as family fun days.

The IT consultancy company, BJSS, were celebrating their 20th business year anniversary and wanted us to organise a weekend away that would serve as a big ‘thank you’ to their employees and their families for all the hard work they had contributed over the years in making their company successful.

The family fun day was to be a great success, 450 employees and family members enjoyed the weekend at Whittlebury Hall in beautiful rural Northamptonshire where they had exclusive use of all the facilities for the duration of their stay, including the spa.

Marquees were erected to cater all the meals for the large delegation and we hosted a fun-packed It’s a Knockout event for the adults and a special version adapted for the children present.   Because of the space required to host an event for so many people, the It’s a Knockout event was hosted in the stunning grounds of Whittlebury Park adjacent to Whittlebury Hall, which is a popular golf and country club.

The wonderful weather certainly contributed to the overall success of the weekend and the It’s a Knockout event proved to be a bit hit and was thoroughly enjoyed by all with everyone getting into the competitive spirit of the day—adults and children alike.

The venue proved to be an excellent choice for hosting such a large event.  The team at Whittlebury Hall were outstanding throughout the day, with everyone paying attention to all the finer details and ensuring that everyone was thoroughly looked after and catered for.  We were extremely pleased at how smooth the weekend’s events went and we were so impressed with the level of professionalism and friendliness that we will definitely be using both venues for future clients’ corporate events as we couldn’t find any fault with the running of the event.

The employees of BJSS enjoyed a great family weekend away and were well catered for by the excellent teams at both venues, with many people taking the time out to compliment both the fantastic customer service and the tasty food at each place.
