Best Team Building Activities: Mild & Wild
The Abbey Resort’s fun team-building exercises that fuel a little friendly competition, while also firing up the friendships.
The Abbey Regatta
The materials, such as cardboard and duct tape, are provided by the resort, while you provide the cleverness and creativity to turn those resources into floating, racing machines. Participants are divided up into teams, then after brainstorming, designing, and constructing their respective boats, the vessels are put to the test to see which creations sink and which sail in the hotel pool.
This team-building event ups the ante on classic miniature golf by tasking teams to not just play, but construct the holes, complete with obstacles and pars. When the “course” is completed, groups compete against each other to see whose design would make Jack Nicklaus most proud.
This experience is truly a once in a lifetime for your team. The day begins with an introductory sailing lesson by the Geneva Lake Sailing School, then once everyone has grasped the basics, it’s time to hit the water for a real sailing regatta with your team members as the crew.
Team Performance Medley
Get your team in the spirit with a field day full of outdoor activities. Stations include challenges like navigating an invisible maze, building the tallest tower, and “ski racing” across a field, which involves a whole team being anchored to a set of planks, then moving as a unit to beat the clock.
Immersion Virtual Reality
Ever wanted to try virtual reality? Your whole group can in the resort’s Immersion Virtual Entertainment Center. To turn it into a team building activity, group into teams of up to four people and battle it out at the four virtual reality gaming stations with fully immersive VIVE head-mountain displays, 360-degree controller and headset tracking, and an expansive gaming library.
