13 Team-building Activities to Build Your Tribe

For any company, trust is the cornerstone of a healthy and productive work environment. It forms the foundation of strong interpersonal relationships among coworkers and enhances overall team performance.

How to Nurture Corporate Culture?

Building trust in the workplace is a continuous process. So, if you’re wondering how to build trust within a team, the answer lies in well-designed team-building activities.

Now, there are two options available in this regard; indoor and outdoor team-building activities. We strongly recommend taking the second route as it allows employees to step away from their workstations and indulge in outdoor fun, away from their work-related stressors. And for this, there’s no better choice than Aventura Parks.

Still wondering how to build a strong team? Here’s how Aventura can help you in this regard:

  • Building Trust

As the name suggests, Building Trust is your best choice if you want to build trust within your team in a fun and engaging manner. This team-building program entails carefully designed scenarios that foster trust between team members. It includes multiple activities, such as Trust Angle, Circle of Trust, Tower Bell, and Building Shelter that are followed by facilitated debriefs and interactive takeaway sessions.

It is suitable for a group size up to 120 members and lasts for around 3 hours.

  • Bargaining and Negotiation

Suitable for a group of up to 120 members, this particular program is structured around the creation of a scenario in which each group is tasked with constructing an item.

Success hinges on the group’s ability to utilise their available resources effectively to acquire all necessary materials “money” and construct the required item. It lasts for 3 hours. The team that successfully builds their item first emerges as the winner of the challenge!

Activities included in this program are:

  • Jacob’s Ladder/Sinking Sands
  • Trust Angle/Circle of Trust
  • Mission Impossible/Spider Web
  • Diminishing Returns/Mindfield


  • Team Dynamics

The Team Dynamics program helps participants understand each other and foster team connections. As a result, it enhances each individual’s capacity to navigate conversations, actions, and behaviours effectively.

This particular program requires the participants to familiarise themselves with the key concepts of the RMP (Reiss Motivation Profile) language and collaborate with Aventura facilitators to interpret their individual results, gaining insights into themselves and their team members.

The team-building activities in the Team Dynamics program aim to reveal behaviours and character traits, serving as a foundation for discussion to foster an understanding of values and motivations. Participants engage in problem-solving, negotiation, strategizing, and collaboration to overcome challenges.

Through these activities, the team collectively constructs a team pact using the terms and methodologies introduced by the Reiss Motivation Profile.

  • Aventura Tribes

Aventura Tribes stands out as our flagship team-building program, consistently earning popularity. This dynamic program is tailored to meet client objectives and requirements, guiding teams through immersive experiences that encompass Competition, Collaboration, and Celebration

Facilitated debrief sessions follow each activity, providing participants with valuable insights to help them process their experiences, drawing connections between the learning acquired and its application in both work and life contexts.

Activities included in this program include:

  • Mission Impossible 
  • Bull Ring
  • Sinking Sands
  • Leap of Faith


  • Forest Scavenger Hunt

Immerse yourself in a high-energy team challenge amid the serene Ghaf tree forest, where triumph hinges on collaboration, communication, and coordination.

Divided into teams of 6 to 10 members, participants receive clues guiding them to discover specific items within the forest. Employing available resources, teams must complete the task within a designated time frame.

Following their return, a brief discussion ensues while points are tallied, culminating in the announcement of the victorious team.

It is basically a scavenger hunt, which can be customised based on the individual requirements of our clients.

  • Forest Competitions

Forest Competitions promote teamwork by emphasising key skills, such as collaboration, communication, and problem-solving, within teams.

Participants are organised into teams, each tasked with working collectively through a series of activities to accumulate the highest score. These activities include climbing wall, bull ring, sinking sands, preserving water, and tug of war.

These competitions serve as excellent opportunities to build camaraderie, strengthen bonds, and break the ice among participants. The victorious team earns a coveted Aventura Prize!
