Event Type: Non-Physical

Homeless Care Packages

Join your colleagues to make the day of someone living on the fringe of our society. Each team will be required to work together in challenges that will earn them supplies to build their own custom care package that will be donated to local shelters. Each of the puzzles and challenges can be customized for the needs and abilities of your group, the budget, or to add trivia from your organization.

Birthday Memories

We work with the local non-profit A Precious Child to donate a special box containing everything a child needs to celebrate their special day. A Precious Child works with families in need to identify kid’s who otherwise would not get gifts, a cake, decorations, etc. on their birthday as these things are out of reach finnacially for the family. Your organization will be divided into teams and work together on custom designed and curated challenges, puzzles, and trivia in order to earn the supplies needed to build a Birthday-In-A-Box package.

Military Care Packages

Join your colleagues to make the day of someone over seas serving in our armed forces. Each team will be required to work together in challenges that will earn them supplies to build their own custom care package that will be sent to military stations requesting extra supplies. Each of the puzzles and challenges can be customized for the needs and abilities of your group, the budget, or to add trivia from your organization.

Game Show Mania

A customize program using your facts and data to create all of the questions and answers or choose some Pop Trivia.

Visions and Values Sculpture

This is a collaborative activity where the artistic and creative abilities of your group will be encouraged to flourish!

Who Kidnapped the Boss

A customizable team building game that can be played anywhere with your remote (or in person) teams. Teams will work through a series of riddles, puzzles and photo/video challenges to unlock suspect statements. With that info in hand they must determine who kidnapped the boss. Teams can use hints – but beware, hints cost points. Can you solve the mystery in time and earn more points than the other teams? This is normally customized, so YOUR Boss has been kidnapped and your own team are the suspects (fully branded with fun Kidnapped posters and promo videos).

Toy Workshops

In a society filled with disposable products, we’ve come to view toys as just trinkets that can be played with then discarded. But they can be so much more. They can encourage creative thought in children, and provide them with learning opportunities. Their construction, too, is a blend of problem solving skills and the imagination. This is why we’ve created a team building activity in Colorado that both gives to children in need, and builds on your employees’ varied skill sets.

Your group will create cohesion and learn valuable communication skills while making charitable contributions to local children’s charities. The teams must solve challenges and puzzles successfully as a team to earn the supplies they need to create engaging toys that will be donated. We bring all the tools, parts, and accessories to make each toy unique, and allow the group to use their creativity in its production.

This activity can be arranged in a way that takes into account your company’s individual budgetary requirements, with materials adjusted accordingly.

Global Solar Giving

Sustainability is increasingly becoming a salient feature in business today. Organizations like yours are understanding their responsibilities to both their local environment, as well as their role in the global picture. Sustainable practices can certainly be implemented as part of day-to-day company activities, but it’s also important to provide team members with an insight into the company’s sustainable activities can impact individuals in cultures very different from their own. 

We’ve created an opportunity for team building in Denver Metro that truly allows your company to change the lives of others. As the world’s population increases and nonrenewable sources of energy for cooking dwindle (e.g., firewood in Asia and Africa) or seriously damage the ozone layer (e.g., fossil fuels), the need to adopt clean, renewable energy sources and devices that utilize these sources grows ever more critical. One important tool that helps address these issues is the use of Solar ovens. 

We begin by working with you to tailor your event to fall in line with your Corporate Social Responsibility policies. During the event, each of your company’s teams will work together to complete problem solving challenges in order to win the supplies they need to construct a solar oven. After following instructions and utilizing technical skills to complete their device, they’ll use an oven at the end of the event to bake cookies for one another as a special treat. Connections Team Building & Training then sends the ovens to third world countries, where being able to boil water can be the difference between life & death.

Par for the Course

Golf has long represented an opportunity for business people to make valuable connections, build relationships with other leaders in the field, and share ideas while taking in the fresh air and ruining a perfectly good walk. However, we figured that team building events in Denver could switch up this tradition in a way that amps up the fun factor while encouraging groups to lean into their problem solving, technical, and creative skills.

Our Par for the Course events are ideal for larger groups, which will be divided into 9 or 18 teams. Each team will then be provided with all the necessary equipment to design and construct their own fun and challenging putt-putt golf hole. This is also an opportunity to see first hand how each set of personalities approaches the artistic and engineering aspects of their hole; will they lean into crazy fun, or are they attempting to make the most difficult obstacles they can imagine?

We bring all the supplies for the holes to the venue. However, in order to create a truly fun and authentic experience, we also provide a general store, staff facilitators, and an entertaining ‘Golf Pro’ emcee.

Build a Better Mousetrap

Organizations face a wide variety of challenges; some predictable, others entirely unexpected. Success in business can often rely upon our employees’ ability to understand the challenges they face and effectively adapt to those events which catch them off-guard, with each understanding their role in the team when this occurs. We’ve taken the time to craft a unique team building event for companies in Denver Metro that explores their abilities in the face of change management.

This team program is based on the best selling book “Who Moved my Cheese” by Spencer Johnson. In the book, 4 characters in a maze are looking for their cheese (a metaphor for what each of us wants in life), our event focuses on the lessons these characters must learn:

The “Handwriting is on the wall”
“Change happens”
“Anticipate change”
“Monitor change”
“Adapt to change quickly”

We ask groups to work on a specific challenge project together with a specific set of parameters and key assigned roles within the group. Then we “change” everything and see how teams react. They must work together to successfully adapt, and create the project despite the new rules, players, deadlines, etc. This mimics the challenges they’ll face in real life, where at any time during their projects the team members, parameters and deadlines might change, but they still have to make it work together.
