Tribal Survivor Challenge Team Building Activity

Tribal Survivor Challenge Team Building Activity

TBAE’s Tribal Survivor Challenge team building activity is inspired by the Survivor reality game show franchise. This team building activity is a fun, exciting and interactive event that is suitable for all ages and fitness levels.

The Tribal Survivor Challenge starts with the group being divided into different tribes using TBAE’s ice breakers. These ice breakers are designed to divide the group up in a way that ‘cliques’ are separated and new relationships formed. Each tribe then gets together to come up with a name for their tribe. They also have to create a flag and a war cry related to the name of the tribe and present them in front of the other tribes.

The tribes then proceed to compete against each other in a variety of team building exercises designed to encourage teamwork, communication and cooperation. Points are awarded for each challenge and the team with the highest points at the end of the event is declared the winning tribe.

Some possible outcomes of the Tribal Survivor Challenge team building activity include teamwork, communication, leadership, cooperation, goal setting, creative thinking, decision making, problem solving, resilience, time management and trust.
