Beach-a-thon is one of our popular outdoor team building games especially when the venue has a long flat stretch of white sandy beach.
We had opportunity to run this game in Sentosa Island in Singapore, Angsanga Resort in Bintan, Bintan Lagoon Resort and Club Med Ria Bintan and also in other locations like Penang and Langkawi (both in Malaysia). For the sun lovers, these venues are heavenly (almost).
Beach-a-thon series of games comprise of up to five games per session, a brief write up of some of them are listed below:
(a) flip it - teams coordinate to flip over a canvas mat
(b) ping pong panic - competitive team game where participants relay a ping pong ball with a tool
(c) buzz light butt - with strings hanging from their waists, participants attempt to ignite a match stick with another team mate assisting
(d) hat trick - participants relay a hat in the fastest time possible
(e) team raid - teams coordinate to launch balls at a target
(f) human centipede - participants attempt to form the longest line possible with limited materials
(g) sponge relay - teams strategise to relay a wet sponge
Leadership, creative thinking, team spirit and motivation are some common learning values that our clients like us to emphasise on through this activity.
More importantly, Beachathon series is a good game to allow participants to let go of their inhibitions and build some bonds with one another.
Nice big open space (can be grass or beach, some shade will be nice)
Plenty of drinking water for participants to hydrate themselves
All other games logistics are provided by the anergy team
