A Weekend of Survivor
You don’t need Jeff Probst or a deserted island to experience the challenges that make this popular reality show famous. Divide into teams and head to the beach to complete any variety of challenges. The options are endless with this, and you can determine what kind of challenges to use based on your colleagues’ abilities and interests. Some ideas include: treasure hunts, memory games, kayak races, and relay races. Employees can keep the same teams all weekend long or you can switch it up throughout the retreat. This is meant to foster teamwork and encouragement, though, so there’s no need for tribal council.
Encourage your employees to get active while learning (or honing) their tennis skills. Sea Oats Luxury Estate has a professional grade tennis court and connections to professional coaches who can lead group lessons. Once your employees have mastered the basics, set up a friendly doubles tournament and have prizes waiting for the winning pair.
Sand Castle Building Contest
Get back to basics with a simple sand castle building contest/competition. The secluded Captiva beach is a perfect setting for this activity. Start by having each team develop a design for their sand castle. Then head to the beach to bring the design to life. Create a rubric based on creativity, size, durability, likeness to original design, and teamwork.
Sea Oats Luxury Estate on Captiva Island is the perfect location for a corporate retreat, and our proximity to the beach along with our spectacular amenities will make it easy for you to plan fun and constructive team building activities.
