Outdoor Team Building Activities

"Yes, the exercise was great and feedback from the team has been really positive. It certainly hit the mark for them and we got some real leadership learning from it. They are still talking about it so it was definitely the right thing. Your team were great and thanks for making it such a success and will certainly be endorsing you." John Bennett ANZ

Our first love, our own experiences in the outdoors shaped the foundations of the Rocket launchpad.

From the gut wrenching courage required to abseil down a rock face (Rocketman is not fond of heights) to the once in a lifetime wonder of kayaking near whales in Alaska. We firmly believe in the power of connecting our small selves with nature.

Some of our favorite team building venues happen to be in the great outdoors, check these ones out

All Rocket Events team building activities are challenging and fun and achievable to all teams, they need not be tests of endurance or strength (but we love putting extra oomph! into our rocket fuel when needed). Our outdoor team building events cater to people of all abilities, shapes and sizes and enable each person to utilise their special skills and talents to achieve orbit.
Waghooning for Charity
We are taking team building to the streets with the added innovation of Wishbone Wagons and the feel good factor of donating the wagons to needy kids to get the Great Wagon Race for Charity. Teams will assemble their wagons (after finding all the hidden pieces and instructions) and hit the streets to complete their challenges. Along the way they will be taking some selfies, completing challenges and maybe even have a little wagon race! The wagons will then be donated to your chosen charities – the Rocketeers love Playcentres (parent led, not for profit, Early Childhood Education Centres) - helping Kiwi kids learn through play and investing in our future leaders. If you would like to add a bit of wow factor we can arrange for the children to come to the end of the event to receive the wagons you are donating – a great bit of feel-good!

Land Search & Rescue Exercise
We are taking team building to the streets with the added innovation of Wishbone Wagons and the feel good factor of donating the wagons to needy kids to get the Great Wagon Race for Charity. Your team will be challenged by the mystery of a lost person, in the dense Kiwi Bush or an Urban Environment near you. Time is running out! Resources & man-power are limited … questions come quickly, "where is their car?", "what was their state of mind?", "did they take their medication?" intelligence is starting to come in slowly.... Sub teams need to establish what has happened to our Missing Person, locate them and bring them back to base - whatever the conditions. Using the latest Land SAR intelligence systems, they will be challenged to think outside the square, look at things from a different perspective & listen to others ideas & opinions. Practical skills like stretcher building, first aid, navigation, radio communication all come into play once the teams head into the field. A complex combination of leadership, initiative, communication and downright hard effort should see everyone, including our missing person, home in time for dinner. LSAR X up your teams alley?
