Building a House of NoodlesThe goal of every GO-Adventures program is to encourage the development of the four elements of a successful adventure experience: trust, communication, cooperation and fun.’

Adventure Team Challenge
For large groups interested in a more recreational team building program on a tight budget… Teams are given instruction booklets and sent through a rotation of different team challenges. During this unique event, groups focus on problem-solving, leadership, communication, trust and planning.

Portable Team Challenge
A sequence of games, initiatives, and low elements, which can be set up in offices, classrooms, playing fields, etc… By participating in these challenging yet fun activities, groups focus on problem-solving, leadership, communication, trust, or any other facet of team development.

ROPES Challenge
Combining elements of the Portable Team Challenge with additional High Elements, the ROPE Challenge is a great way for groups to either work on specific goals, or simply enjoy a recreational team building program. The addition of High Elements creates a significant individual experience for members of the group, focusing on personal achievement and self-awareness.

Team Project Events (TPEs)
Incorporating elements of the Portable Team Challenge with a community service project, the Team Project Event (TPE) is part traditional teambuilding program and part construction or maintenance project. Organizations can give back to their communities while learning key skills and enjoying the satisfaction of working together towards a higher goal…

Race Day
An exciting and competitive event for smaller groups, the Race Day enhances teamwork through the creation of a Soapbox Derby Racer. Teams of 2 to 4 participants will compete to build, brand and race their vehicle, producing their creation on time and within budget…

Team Development
NEXTeams is a multi-step process that combines experiential exercises with comprehensive discussions and diagnostic testing. Over a two or three day event, organizations undergo a complete overhaul of the team, yielding improved communication, commitment and teamwork.  From start to finish, the goal is fundamental positive change within the organization.

Giant Ladder is a high element challenge on the ropes course.Sequence of Teambuilding Activities:

Games are activities that serve as icebreakers – encouraging participants to relax, act silly, and remove some of the barriers that normally keep individuals from cooperating with one another. Games are the simplest form of team challenge.

Initiatives are activities that require group members to identify a problem, make a plan for solving that problem, and initiate their plan. These challenges foster communication, commitment to the group and leader/follower roles among the group members.

Low Elements are physical structures built out of wood or plastic, which require significant commitment from members of the group. Many elements bring participants off of the ground, calling for spotters, and other safety considerations.

Trust Activities are physical challenges that may be as simple as being blindfolded and led through an obstacle course, or as complicated as being suspended off the ground and flipped through the air into waiting arms. The additional risk often ranks trust activities among the most intense and powerful experiences in the Portable Team Challenge.
