Team building activities can be held in different venues. There are those that are conducted indoors, there are also that are facilitated outdoors by Hidden Door and other companies that offer team building facilitation services. When you hire facilitators, you have the option to choose your own venue and the facilitators would just go there or you can also opt for companies that offer venue, services and their facilitation skills.Both indoor and outdoor venues have their own benefits but if you are leaning towards outdoor setting, here are some of the benefits that you could get out of it.
Space for mobility
Team building activities can involve games and physical activities such as running, skipping or doing races. Thus, it would be best to have the activity outdoors to provide your team more space for moving around and for them to move freely and safely. An outdoor venue such as the one offered by Hidden Door is suitable for large organizations with numerous members. Renting a large hall or room in a hotel can be expensive. Some suitable outdoor venue can include beachside, nearby parks and office grounds.
More fresh air
Having your team building activity outdoors allows you to sweat naturally and you get plenty of fresh air which is also another reason to have the event outdoors. Pick a shaded area for your team building or one that does not get direct exposure to sunlight. Inform your team members ahead if you are going to have your team building outdoors so they can apply sun block or sun screen protection on their body. Make sure to have ample supply of water and refreshment in the area including a medical team in case of accidents.
More activities to conduct
Lastly, if you are going to have your activity outdoors or in Hidden Door, you can have more activities since you are not limited with space. The more games you can do, the more fun and exciting it is for the entire team. Book your reservations ahead to ensure that you will have a venue on your scheduled date.
