Free Team Building Activity 4: Building A Structure

Imagine trying to put up a tent in the dark, without a torch.  This following activity basically mimics that exact scenario!

Task: Whilst wearing blindfolds, build a new structure (set up a tent) using the resources available, then get the entire group to gather inside it.

This is a fairly difficult task that heavily involves communication, co-operation, problem solving and trust – a perfect team building activity!  To make this exercise even harder, ask for nonverbal communication.

What you will need:

A free stranding tent (large enough to get the whole group inside)


5-10 people
