Team Building at Tree Top Adventure Baguio


Michael Jordan once said: "Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships." 

Last weekend, I was back at the Summer Capital of the Philippines, Baguio. Together with fellow bloggers, we experienced what Tree Top Adventure has to offer.

Yes, aside from the motorized activities, Tree Top Adventure also has Team Building facilities. This is perfect for companies and groups who's looking for more challenging and fun team bonding activities.

Forget about the usual spider web, wall climb or relays- Tree Top Adventure Baguio offers more than that. Participants will be challenged to innovate , think out of the box and exceed themselves with the line up of activities. I was able to experience their team building exercises last year with another set of participants and thought everything's going to be easy-peasy. Little did I realize that things will still be different now that I have another group to join.

TEAM PIA vs TEAM TANDERS

We were divided into two groups. I belong to Team Pia- (Pi.ya/noun/ someone who is confidently beautiful with heart. Maganda/gwapo. ganon.) The other group call themselves Team Tanders- (Tan.ders /noun/ someone who is old. Matanda. Pero lalaban pa. ganon

THE CHALLENGES

So we went through several challenges. We have to finish each activity with the fastest time. Unlike other facility, at Tree Top Adventure, everything can be measured and the output and success will be coming from the effort of the whole group working together to achieve the goal.

TEAM SEE-SAW

ABC GAME
Standing back to back with the other team members, each must recite the letters of the alphabet in proper sequence at the shortest possible time.

This one looks easy, but it is not. :)

LESSONS LEARNED
  • However challenging each activities are, enjoyment is still vital. We all went through each challenge with big laughs and just cherished every single moment of it. 
  • Communication is the key. Listen. Remember that we were given two ears and one mouth to listen twice as much as we speak.
  • Collaborate. I am not familiar with most of my team members as I have only met them there. Building rapport with them made things easier.
  • Innovate and be creative. Most of the challenges squeezed our creative juices. It was fun to exercise our brains to find strategies.
  • Be patient. The activities weren't a walk in the park. To go thru each challenge in the fastest and shortest time sure tested our patience. There were even times when it seemed impossible to finish the activity, but our determination and patience triumphed. Walang makakapigil sa amin!
  • Daig ng matanda ang maganda (at gwapo). :) After all the challenges, Team Tanders emerged the winner. It was a well- deserved win.

Beyond the scores, both teams are winners. Both teams displayed determination and worked towards achieving the goal. So congratulations to Team Pia and Team Tanders! After the team building, all of us got closer to each other. 'Confetti'
