The team challenge is a series of five 10-minute challenges that will test brain and body, but mostly the communication and leadership skills of the group.
Crossing the Snake Pit — a physical challenge that requires strength, balance, a clear plan as well as some wooden planks and milk crates.
The Communication Caterpillar — a communication and trust activity as blindfolded team mates guide each other around a woodland course.
Abandoned Herbicide — lateral thinking is required to move the ‘poison’ with the given equipment without touching or spilling it.
Lumberjack Relay — A fun and frantic ball kicking; wheelbarrow wheeling; foot-ball throwing; dressing up; crazy scramble for points.
Towers of Hanoi — A fiendish ancient maths puzzle made big with car tyres and wooden posts.
Grass Skis — If the teams are really close then we may deploy the ’Grass Skis Tie-Breaker’. Cooperation, strength and stamina will be tested to the limit as teams attempt to propel themselves towards the finish line mounted on long wooden ‘skis’ made from heavy wooden planks with rope handles.
Shelter Building challenge
Bring out your inner engineer with this shelter building challenge. Working in teams and using natural materials, you will construct sturdy and weather proof shelters.
The shelters will be subject to rigorous tests to ascertain their structural integrity and water proof qualities (we use a member of staff and water to do this). Points will be awarded based on the results.

Head off and explore the Pinetum as you take part in the tree tracker challenge, find trees and check facts to score your team points!
