American River rafting is one of the best ways to build trust and team spirit while having fun. A whitewater rafting trip can also be a reward for achieving goals. After the trip, team members will be more supportive of each other, communicate better, and become a more cohesive group. These are just some of the benefits that your company can get after taking a whitewater rafting trip with Whitewater Excitement.
Corporate Team Building experiences
Whitewater Rafting trips are an effective team building activity. Teaching six to eight people how to paddle and work together to get a raft through the rapids on the American River requires a lot of teamwork. Whitewater Excitement can come up with special team building exercises that focus on leadership, cooperation and communication. The activities will be centered on rafting and will be done on the river.
Whitewater rafting trips are ideal for fostering camaraderie and teamwork. The American River, very near both the San Francisco Bay Area and the San Jose area, provides natural challenges where groups need to navigate rapids, paddle as a group and work on a common goal. The activity promotes trust, teamwork and open communication. It also allows Corporate Team Building to release the stress, and unwind while having fun by celebrating the success of the group around the campfire at night. It brings the group together with results that will help the members contribute to the success of the business and bolster the company’s bottom line.
Planning a team building experience
You don’t need to come up with an activity that is too difficult and intimidating. Planning a special event with team members means they should be able to have fun as they work together. That’s why American River rafting is the perfect team Corporate Team Building activity.
The best thing about American River rafting is that there are choices depending on the group’s skill level. The South Fork of the river is perfect for beginners. It provides a fun experience for everyone without being risky or uncomfortable. The South Fork is suitable for all fitness and skill levels. All members of the group will surely enjoy the experience. Even non-swimmers can take part of the activity as the group go down the Class III rapids. The Middle Fork is more challenging. If everyone in the group can swim, then the Class IV waters of the Middle Fork will provide more excitement. The rapids of the American River provide a lot of excitement and still have time to swim, relax and do other activities.
