We’ve all been dragged to those team bonding festivities that make you want to pull your teeth out. The trust exercises or word associations that lose oomph in application fail to garner the connectivity your team was craving. In short, creating a memorable experience remains a challenge. Regardless of how hard hosting a good team bonding exercise might be, they are mandatory for overall growth.
For this year’s training camp, choose something everyone on the team will love. San Diego offers a variety of catered experiences that will leave everyone smiling at the end. More importantly, all these venues do the planning for you. Better team bonding activities with less planning; what could be better than that?
Just because you’re focusing on bringing the team together doesn’t mean you can’t add in a little physical activity. Introducing the newly adopted version of an international favorite sport, Bubble Soccer. Imagine a stimulating combination of Sumo wrestling, bubble wrap, and soccer playing out on an open field under that glorious San Diego sunshine.
Despite the enormous popularity growing around the world, you might be unsure if this activity merits the attention of a college team. Know that professional teams as esteemed as Disney or Hewlett-Packard adopted Bubble Soccer for their trainings. We all need a fun way to release steam. Plus, with the entire team wrapped in the equivalent of modern-day bubble wrap, injury risk remains low.
If you’re looking to retire the physical activity for the afternoon, challenge the academic side. Themed puzzle rooms continue to captivate the attention of groups around the nation. From the den of a mad scientist to navigating the aftermath of Houdini’s illusions, groups will be placed in a room where they rely on their wit and collaboration to crack the code vital to their escape. With the clock ticking, can your team work together or will the pressure get to them?
These interactive experiences will challenge your team in an entirely different way, creating that memorable experience they talk about for years to come.
Several different themed puzzle shops call San Diego home, giving you the versatility to pair your team with the perfect escape room. Here are several shops in downtown San Diego to consider:
