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.
Urban Adventure Race
Teams have to work together to gather the most points through a mix of running/walking, navigation and challenge activities to score as many points as they can. Teams are handed their Race Case, then required to work together prior to starting the race to develop a strategy of where they are going to go and what they are going to do. The beauty of the event is that teams decide where they want to go - what pace/distance and what activities they want to do, we can balance the choice between distance covered and activities to complete to match your engagement outcomes for your team.

Land Search & Rescue
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.

The Great Kiwi Trolley Derby
Re-live the Days of Thunder.... The smell of grease, burning rubber, emotions building as high performance crews power their trolleys around the track for a place on the podium. Hand brake turns and total burn-out's, are all on the cards as we pit team against team, machine against machine. Building a high performing race trolley requires a high performing team, creative thinking, lots of communication & team work. All trolleys are inspected by our experienced mechanics and all safety aspects are scrutinised by the course adjudicator before racing begins. The Derby involves a series of Pit Crew challenges to develop a well oiled racing team before taking on the The Great Kiwi Trolley Race. Great Kiwi Trolley Derby right up your team's alley?
