Enriching Team Experiences
The Bonding Your Teams Need
The value of team building goes beyond the ability to provide your organization with a session that sees them working together to achieve goals. At Connections Team Building and Training we understand how activities can be designed to meet the specific technical needs of a business, while also developing soft skills such as empathy, creativity, and cooperation. In each of our activities, these elements are wrapped in opportunities for fun, exploration, and personal growth. We make memorable experiences that solidify skills for diverse, successful teams.

Team Building Adventures
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.
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.

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.
A light-hearted competition that helps bring a smile to someone's face. From 'paying it forward' to doing something generous for a teammate, teams will be tasked with a set of challenges encouraging them interact with each other and the public at large in ways they never normally would. Random' is the key phrase here – to complete each challenge, participants engage in novel ways with their teammates and strangers alike. From recording themselves telling their best joke to a man on the street, to leaving a fiver on a vending machine to treat the next customer, these challenges push team members out of their comfort zone to help spread goodwill in their communities. Groups are split into teams of 3-5 members that compete to see who can do the most good! We will provide a series of challenges that will help you bond with your teammates while giving back to your community. We can customize the game to integrate seamlessly with your existing corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives, creating team building experiences founded in kindness and compassion.
Camping is a true Colorado passion and pasttime. While enjoying the beautiful backdrop of the Colorado mountains, we take your group through a wide range of "camper" themed challenges, using real camping supplies. the great thing is thta all that camping gera gets donated to a local Scout Troop or Non-Profit camp helping inner city kids experience the great outdoors of Colorado
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).
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.
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.
Sports can be the ultimate in team activities. They offer opportunities for bonding, problem solving as a group, utilizing the individual talents of team members, as well as being a huge amount of fun! We’ve worked to create a football fantasy experience that is unique to the team building needs of companies in Denver Metro.
Your adventure will unfold at the world-renowned Empower Field at Mile High. The field is perfectly situated near downtown Denver and is truly a magical place to play host to your company’s team building experience. The fantasy scenario surrounds our new Summer Football League (SFL), which takes full advantage of the field in the off season. Congratulations; your group has made it to the Pros! Your group will play the role of teams vying for a coveted slot at Empower Field. They’ll participate in a variety of challenges, each carefully designed to make your team think and interact with one another in entirely unique and fun ways.
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.
Ah, Recess; the time during the school day to break free of the classroom, and let off some steam. Everyone’s favourite subject has been revamped and modernized to create a fun, fulfilling event for team building in Denver Metro!
You’ll head out into your makeshift adult schoolyard with your friends, and compete against one another in a varied selection of activities designed to strengthen your bonds, test your team dynamics, and pump the fun factor to 1000! We’ll provide all the equipment, guidance, and responsible adult supervision to make certain your Corporate Recess is a success.
The bell has rung, it’s time for Recess! Tailor your experience with challenge stations such as the following field day style races:
Water Bottle Race
Beach Ball Push
And many more!
Some of the most memorable team building events in the Denver Metro area lean into what Colorado does best. When exploring possibilities for our Scaventure experiences, we’re always looking for the fun and fascinating aspects our local areas can offer. Those unique twists for groups to explore as they strengthen their collaborative relationships, and have a lot of fun. Brewventure blends problem solving with the rich brewery culture of Denver Metro.
Teams will need to craft a strategy to finish their assigned tasks and venture to local breweries. Along the way they’ll be challenged to work together, using their individual talents and group dynamics to answer trivia, take photos, solve puzzles, and find specific locations. At each brewery teams will get to try local beers as part of their quest to complete custom challenges. The teams will be given a designated time in which they must meet at the final target location, and must complete as many items assigned by a smartphone app as possible.
We provide everything needed for your group to enjoy a fun, enriching hunt. Our staff will be on hand to explain all the rules, send the teams on their way, and act as referees in calculating the results at the end of the event.
Introducing a new product or service in your business can be a genuinely exciting experience. This is a sign of company growth, of the leadership’s confidence in employees’ abilities to create, and a testament to the hard work and dedication of all those who have contributed. However, in order to make it a success, it’s important for all employees to gain a thorough working knowledge of the product, and the impact it can have. Connections Team Building & Training’s Lights, Camera, Action! brings a fun, creative team building activity into the mix.
We bring the cameras, props, costumes, production staff, and a ‘director’ emcee to the location of your choice. Your teams will utilize their communication and creative skills to script, perform, and film a movie trailer for your organization. They will use their in-depth knowledge of your chosen products or services to create a clear, concise communication of the product’s key advantages, and the values your business represents.
This isn’t just a standard, dull advertisement production, either. Your teams will have the opportunity to have fun by adding some drama to your company culture. Perhaps they’ll find a comedic angle to bring some laughs to your sales spiel. They may even find themselves creating the ultimate end-of-the-world scenario that can only be thwarted by your company. The entire group will have a great time producing their masterpieces, and viewing all the finished products.
There are times when you want to take team building in Denver Metro beyond the norm, to venture outside the urban limits. We are fortunate in Colorado to have access to an incredible variety of environments, each with potential for exploration and adventure throughout all four beautiful seasons. Connections Team Building and Training Colorado Extreme Adventures have been expertly designed to allow your group to safely explore outside of their comfort zone, and participate in a range of fun and memorable challenges.
Our adventures are incredible opportunities for the teams to work together to solve problems, to encourage one another to experience something a little different, and enhance their individual and group confidence. This outdoor program pushes all participants a little further than they may have thought possible, and provides team members to learn more about themselves, and one another.
These team building experiences are tailorable to your needs, and there is the opportunity to choose from a selection of activities which are symbolic of real Colorado adventures, including:
White Water Rapids
Golden Eagle Rescue
Stock Show Roller Roper
Also available for this adventure are many types of virtual reality and arcade games which offer a Colorado flair:
Off Road Thunder
Big Buck Hunter
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”
“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.
Riding a bike is often a key aspect of our formative experiences. It provides us with healthy exercise, enhances our physical and cognitive skills, and offers the opportunity for incredible adventures and the memories that go along with them. Unfortunately, there are children in our state that don’t have those opportunities. We’ve created a Colorado team building event that engages your team’s technical and creative skills, while allowing your company the chance to make a real impact on the lives of children.
This bicycle building experience will touch your hearts and inspire your minds. It is filled with fun and excitement, as well as the opportunity to develop skills, tools and insights that will make a dramatic and powerful effect on your team. However, this activity goes beyond the simple ability to follow instructions and work together. Teams will compete in problem solving puzzles and challenges in order to be rewarded with the tools and pieces needed to construct the bikes. Participants get to bond through their competitive spirit, harness their individual talents, and engage their empathy to understand their effect upon the world. The bicycles produced by your teams will be donated to local children’s organizations like The Tennyson Center, YMCA, A Precious Child, CASA or Boys & Girls clubs.

Team Building Events To meet Your Goals

Fostering a philanthropic culture is important to any business. For employees, engaging in charitable team building activities can not only help develop empathy, but also bolster the importance of contributing to the community as part of your organization’s core values.
We’ve crafted a program of charitable activities that make for unique team building in Denver Metro. Each has been designed to fit the goals of your organization, while making a difference to charitable foundations both in Colorado and across the globe. We have also taken time to ensure a range which can best suit your company's philanthropic ideals; including making bicycles for underprivileged children, and sustainable solar ovens for third world countries.
The Great Indoors
Activities don’t have to take place in the wilderness in order to be enriching. There is enormous value to be found from indoor team building activities in Denver Metro. We’ve crafted a wide selection that provides opportunities for employee collaboration, and also fits the specific needs and personalities of those involved. We’ve taken into account the fun that physical activity in team building events can bring, and paired this with opportunities to enhance cognitive function and utilize creative thought.
Indoor team building events are some of the most tailorable. We provide all the equipment and staff expertise you’ll need to bring a sense of fun and collaboration to the venue of your choice. Set your group loose on a creative and delicious culinary challenge, or roll cameras to film a unique movie trailer. You’ll definitely have the opportunity to let off some steam, and your team will come away from the experience enriched, and with a greater understanding of themselves and their colleagues.
Trivia and Game Team Building
Tests of knowledge have become one of the key activities of our times. Whether it’s playing a board game or joining a pub quiz team, we love to explore our trivia potential. We’ve developed team building experiences in Colorado that bring the fun of trivia and game shows to your choice of venue. They might seem loud, crazy, fun — and they definitely are — but over our years of experience, we’ve found that they can have a deeper impact on employees.
We combine pop culture and other forms of trivia with facts about your organization, its services, and products. Not only does this provide a meaningful connection to your company and test knowledge, your teams gain opportunities to understand in real time how the intelligent placement of individual expertise can empower the team as a whole. The trivia and game team building events we’ve constructed capitalize on the potential for team members to be proactive in their approach to addressing tasks, to use their knowledge and talents for the competitive advantage of the team, and have a huge amount of fun at the same time.
We'll bring all the equipment
