Orienteering is a sport in which competing teams, using a map and compass, must navigate in unfamiliar terrain, passing through the series of control points that have to be followed in a specified order, and reach the finish line in the shortest time possible.
Why choosing orienteering as a team building activity ? What skills does it develop ? • communication • collaboration • decision making • competition • leadership
Orienteering can be run in a less competitive and more convivial way, while remaining an exciting game which may be expanded through guess and puzzle and a system of clues.
Get lost ! Another challenging way of testing your team ability to work as a collective force to achieve a common goal is the ‘Get Lost’ game in which you drop the participants off in a remote location, after blindfolding them.
