Separating a group from the work environment can help the individuals within the group to remove the barriers between them. And nothing can separate most work environments more than going outside. Leaving the fluorescent lights and going back to nature is a great way to get away from it all.
Climate has a big impact on the possibilities for destination teambuilding. After all, a green corporate event in snow covered mountains would be far different than beaches in Hawaii.
In a warm environment, there are a lot of options available. Watersports, golf, scavenger hunts, ropes courses, contests, beach adventures, making sand castles and any outdoor sport are all available.
In a cold environment, winter sports are more likely options. Cross-country skiing, hockey, snowman building, ice sculpting, curling, ice skating, plowing, shoveling and just about anything else you can think of.
Urban vs. wilder environments have an impact.
In an urban environment, the options are stuck with either public parks or the streets.
In a rural environment, there are other possibilities. Forests, for example, there are white water rafting, ropes courses, survival training and many other thihngs to do. Beaches allow for surfing, waterboarding, sand castle building, volleyball and other activities.
Likewise, you can make some green corporate event choices. Besides not increasing your carbon footprint, you can participate in conservation activities by repairing trails, cleaning the environment of litter or other volunteer work to help the outdoors.
