One of the most important things for people growing up is the ability to work well with others. This may sound rather basic but the bottom line is that to get by in this life you need to be able to work with other people. Because the human community is something of an unnaturally created construct many people benefit from different team building activities. If you feel as though you or your team could use some pepping up, here are some pretty amazing outdoor activities Dublin has that you all can try.
Orienteering: One of the coolest things you can do to really help build your team building, especially for younger kids, is send them out on a scavenger hunt. The orienteering track uses a map and a compass to find your way or to pick out specific control points. Orienteering is of particular benefit for those looking into a career in the military or for those who excel at problem solving.
Assault Courses: Assault courses are something that is good for both younger people and older adults. These courses, which are a part of outdoor activities near Dublin, offer the ability for teams to really get in the weeds and work together for a common goal.
Bubble Football: If you are looking for something a little less intense than an assault course why not try some bubble football? This takes the sport and really makes it a lot less threatening and a lot less intense. The fact that you’re dealing with bubbles means that you need to be a lot less athletic and a lot more creative in your achievement of the goal; play on!
Tree Climbing: The tree climbing at these adventure centre’s is not your mothers tree climbing. You are going to be working in pair or small teams and you are going to be scaling these massive trees. You may even be on some type of a tie line so that if you lose your balance and fall back to the earth, it will be as a feather as opposed to a lead weight.
Zip Lining: Another area where people have found a great deal of freedom and have had a lot of fun with the outdoor adventure style is with zip lining. It is just you and the open air as you cross some pretty epic chasms. Of course there is no zip lining success without a modicum of teamwork and this is something that you can learn all about while practicing team building activities in and around Dublin.
Instructors: Whether you are dealing with a school aged group or a group of adults who need to re-learn their team building exercises, the instructors being front-and -center with your team is key. If you have poor instructors then you are going to have a bad go of it. Maybe even more importantly than having instructors who know what they are doing, you need to have an instructor staff that is going to keep you and your team safe. If there is ever any doubt about the safety of yourself or of your team then you should walk away. These team-building exercises are new and they should take you out from your comfort zone a bit and shake you up.
Of course the team building aspect of these outdoor adventure centre’s needs to be something that is centrally located so that everyone can come! One of the best outdoor activities centre’s around Dublin is actually Wild Rosanna. Being just a 30-minute drive from downtown you will still feel a world away while your team is here.
