Creating an emotional bond with the charity, focuses the teams and boosts engagement with the event and with team members.
On Board is our newest team challenge at o3e stable, offering a lower cost alternative to our highly successful Charity Bike Build. This challenge focuses on the assembly and the creative individualising of skateboards.
Fun House Challenge
The Fun House Challenge is a creative team building activity that allows teams to express their creativity and deliver a great end result, whilst challenging them on budgeting, time management and allocation of responsibilities.
Suited to anyone, this challenge can be used for Graduate Induction, CSR Community Days, Team Off Sites and Conferences. The event can be run indoors or outside, and all the paints are not only suitable for a child’s environment but also for use in confined areas – perfect for a hotel conference suite or your own workplace.
The teams need to build, paint and decorate their own house or vehicle. Once finished, the Fun Houses are delivered to either key charity projects we are working with such as the NSPCC’s Neglect Programme, or you may have your own ideas of where the fun houses could be donated.
