Partnership with OWLS
For the ultimate group experience, take advantage of our superior team building activities that are in the form of world-class experiential education programs. Organizational Wide Leadership Solutions (OWLS) has been the pioneer in creating innovative corporate team building activities since 1996. Through our partnership with OWLS, we are able to offer four exciting customized programs.
"Boar's Head Extreme"
The most unique team building in Central Virginia. Get out of the board room and work on goal setting, communication and teamwork while rock climbing or kayaking.
"Planting Community Seeds"
The ultimate team building and community service project. Here, your team can spend the afternoon building a complete working garden that will then be donated to a school or low income housing project. Tax deductible.
"Build It Play It"
OWLS' most popular activity! Choose from Cardboard Regatta or Hole in One activity. Here, participants build the activities as a collaborative work group sharing resources, making marketing presentations, then competing with one another.
"Boar's Head Survivor"
This is an initiative-based "low ropes course" where participants will work to solve complex problems as a team. Team development and leadership concepts are taught through activities that draw on the knowledge and ideas of every group member and require participation and cooperation of the entire group for success.
Cooking Classes / Iron Chef as Team Building The kitchen represents a microcosm of the working world with deadlines, decision-making and cooperation necessary to succeed.Cooking is based on a system of organization and it is all about team building!
After a short introduction, including safety lessons and basic knife skills, the group is formed into teams. Each team chooses a team leader and is presented with a "Culinary Challenge."For the next 1.5 to 2 hours the teams have to prepare the food, following the given guidelines, which are far away from being complete recipes. The main goal is to work together, using inspiration, creativity and trust in each other. The final dinner is when the ice is broken and everyone gets a new taste about who they really are besides a corporate staff member as they reflection on the collaborative cooking experience.
