Perfectly suited to enhance social relations and define roles within teams, the firm recommends three different types of experience days, suited to improve either communication or co-operation skills in the office, or suitable as a rewarding activity.
Sarah Goodey, Co-Founder of Lost Earth Adventures, states: "Outdoor adventures can prove a catalyst for developing core team skills and individual leadership. Lessons learned in an outdoor environment are easily transferred and applied into any business scenario. Whether it is as a reward or to pinpoint specific challenges facing your organisation, Lost Earth Adventures tailors the day to focus on your needs and aspirations as a team."
3 TEAM BUILDING EXPERIENCE DAYS FROM LOST EARTH ADVENTURES
ABSEILING TO IMPROVE TEAM COMMUNICATION SKILLS
Corporate teams can experience the thrilling rush of abseiling (otherwise known as rappelling) down a vertical face, with the experts from Lost Earth Adventures. An exhilarating way to have fun, abseiling also challenges key communication skills.
Team members will work together to conquer the crag in pairs. Qualified and experienced instructors will also set team goals, such as abseiling the length of Mt. Everest in a day, or overcoming an obstacle course, where teams challenge co-workers to a climb, an abseil and weaseling (wriggling through holes), all in a day. Half day abseiling courses cost from £35 per person, full day courses from £45.
CAVING FOR TEAM CO-OPERATION AND SUPPORT
Lost Earth Adventures’s caving courses allow those of all experience levels to explore underworld caverns, tunnels and spelunking holes as a team, in various locations throughout Yorkshire and the Peak District. Caving is synonymous with the two regions - widely considered as two of the UK’s premier potholing destinations.
On one of Lost Earth Adventure’s half- or full-day caving courses, together teams can journey through ancient limestone passageways and witness spectacular rock formations. Through the caving experience, crucially all participating will hone their co-operative skills - needed to help and encourage any potential nervous team members conquer the underground rivers, crawl and squeeze through narrow passage ways, climb waterfalls and traverse clear rock pools. Half day caving courses cost from £25 per person, full day courses from £35.
GORGE SCRAMBLING FOR REWARDS
Gorge scrambling in the Peak District with Lost Earth Adventures is an exhilarating and rewarding team building experience. Ideal as a company prize for a job well done, teams will relish jumping in natural pools and scrambling up waterfalls, on the ultimate adventure activity in Derbyshire. Ghyll scrambling takes around three hours and can be done in the morning or afternoon.
The scenery is wild and staggeringly beautiful on top of the Peak District’s highest point, Kinder Scout. Teams will ascend rugged and varied terrain and pass through verdant valleys and lofty summits. Scramblers will also see fields of heather and vast moorland, juxtaposed with craggy outcrops of gritstone, which break through the rolling hills. Spot on for taking a team’s mind away for the office for a day, teams will feel a million miles from the fast pace of the city, while exploring the natural wonders of the UK’s first national park. A honeypot of rewarding adventure for an office squad. Half day caving courses cost from £25 per person, full day courses from £35.
