Charity Team Building Activities & Events

Would you like your team to connect with their community? Would you like your community to engage with your team? Rocket Events have a load of ideas to help you achieve both in fun, meaningful ways.


We are so blessed at Rocket Events to be given the opportunity to connect organisation with worthy community based team building experiences.

Corporate Social Responsibility is hot on everyone’s lips at the moment. We believe CSR is more than a team bonding experience or an opportunity for company’s to be seen to be doing good. It’s about bringing people together to build sustainable relationships that make a real difference.

We are proud to have worked with Auckland Woman’s Refuge, Starship Children s Hospital, NZ Playcentre Associations, Auckland City Mission, Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust, Dress for Success and many more wonderful organisations doing amazing work to support our communities.

Talk to the Rocketeers about building your sustainable CSR relationships with an inspiring, educational & interactive engagement event.



‘Best Team Building Activity ever! is how our people described the Ukulele Challenge. It was fabulous and will be hard to top next year.’ Bay Audiology

The team at Rocket Events has hooked up with NZ hottest Ukulele sounds, The Nukes. These dudes will have your team all tuned up and swinging to your own sounds in no time.

From writing catchy team tunes to creating the beat, everyone plays a key part in bringing your performance together. It’s about opening up your artistic talents and creating the most upbeat & entertaining live performance or getting on down recording your team demo.

The real buzz is gifting your ukuleles to a local School so they can be part of the fun and excitement of learning to play the ukulele.

Why Ukes for Schools? The benefits of music are enormous – kids who learn to play an instrument enjoy advantages for the rest of their lives, both academic and personal.

Music provides an outlet for self-expression and focuses on “doing” rather than observing. Young musicians learn to conquer fear and take risks. Early music training helps develop brain areas that involve language and reasoning. These are all essential “human skills” that shape lives forever and help to produce productive and positive youth and adults.

Take our 10 years of creating outstanding interactive events tailored to your desired outcomes, add The Nukes, NZ’s most talented song writers & Ukulele Trio & you’re sure to have your team buzzing.

The Auckland City Mission Mission is a rollicking good time combining, giving back, strategy, personality and teamwork with a race against the clock. Rocket Events have twisted the classic treasure hunt and bent it so you get the best out of your Team while supporting the great work they do at the City Mission.

Nutritious food is fundamental to building healthy communities and need is not just restricted to those able to visit the Mission. There are thousands in the community who require a little assistance from time to time and there are hundreds of smaller community groups who work to help these people. On average the Auckland City Mission distributes an estimated $2,000,000 worth of food every year.

Teams will be challenged to think on their toes as they complete a series of interactive & engaging challenges around the City gaining vital supplies to help support the City Mission.

We are passionate about fresh food, organic gardening, health & wellbeing and working with our community. What better way to bring them all together than plant Heirloom Orchards in Schools.

School Orchards aren’t just a great team building day. Its about working with a school, building a relationship and to help educate children about where their food comes from, how it grows, how to care for it, understanding eating in season, what is organic and most of all creating a healthy sustainable future.

We have partnered with the best in the game when it comes to heirloom orchards, Benji Woodman from Forgotten Fruits and the good folks at Living Earth . Together we create an engaging, interactive and educational experience your how team will be proud of. All we ask is this you commit to orchard and make sure you build on the community relationship in the future.

We are here to make it happen. There is nothing more rewarding than facilitating relationships between organisations and Schools and leaving a legacy.

RED WAGONS FOR KIWI KIDS – encouraging kids to learn through PLAY

We have been on the hunt for ages for cool as toy that is NZ designed, innovative, stimulating, sustainable and children can learn from when play. Build a bike…not us as it only goes to one kid. We’ve finally found it – Rich & Jen from Wishbone Design Studios have the coolest red wagons. More than just the coolest wagon we love their philosophy “We challenged ourselves to create designs that transform your experience, reduce consumption, deliver a positive environmental outcome, and bring people closer together.”

We have facilitated this CSR team engagement experience loads of different ways.

Like the wagon, their are loads of ways to comment your team while building something that will last & be loved by heaps of kids.
