Some of the most memorable and valuable team building experiences take place in the great outdoors. Whether you’re bonding together as you overcome challenges while battling the elements, or pushing your competitive spirit through sports in the summer heat - the outdoors offers opportunities for growth and bonding. This is why we’ve worked to carefully craft a range of outdoor events for team building in Colorado, each designed to develop a diverse variety of skills and maximize the element of fun.
We also deeply understand the importance of expertise when it comes to embracing outdoor locations. Each of our events is designed, built, and staffed by those with the knowledge you need to optimize your group’s potential, while keeping them safe. At Connections Team Building & Training, our goal is to make sure your group emerges from their outdoor team building adventure as stronger individuals, and a closer collaborative unit, all while having some fun and building positive memories.
Outdoor Team Building
Select one of the options below to learn more about the team-building event.
Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", at specific locations marked by coordinates all over the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook and sometimes a pen or pencil. The geocacher signs the log with their established code name and dates it, to prove that they found the cache. After signing the log, the cache must be placed back exactly where the person found it. Larger containers such as plastic storage containers (Tupperware or similar) or ammunition boxes can also contain items for trading, such as toys or trinkets, usually of more sentimental worth than financial. The Connections Team Building version is custom created for your organization in your specific location

Creating new and exciting team building events in Colorado provides the opportunity to combine fun and challenge with an insight into the environment that surrounds us. Colorado’s natural landscapes are a valuable and vulnerable resource, and we each have a responsibility to ensure they are protected for generations to come. The Conservation Rangers event gives teams a chance to use their individual talents and team dynamics to simulate playing a key role in its preservation.
The scenario informs groups that the Colorado National Forest and Plains have been scheduled to be turned into a trailer park, due to a government snafu. In order to get the land transferred back to the park service, the government has agreed to a plan in which the Rangers must prove their competence. Your group represents the Rangers, and will be split into teams to participate in wacky, challenging tasks to determine who will be in charge of the conservation effort.
We have built the Colorado Rangers scenario to be tailorable to your organization’s needs, what you hope participants to get out of the experience, and suitability for the choice of environment in which the event will take place. The selection of challenges to choose from includes:
River Raft Race
Web of Rangers
Campfire Song & Dance
Pine Cone Catapult
Seed Delivery System
Eagle Egg Safety
Wildlife Vision Capture
Ranger Coat of Arms
Camper Construction Race

So you think you can construct a catapult that can out launch all others? Not so fast Mr. Engineer!
We’ve crafted an awesome construction event that has a dynamic and theatrical climax that your group will love! Your teams will get to dive into this combination of hands-on and cerebral challenges, testing their ability to problem solve as a team in order to create the most effective large-scale slingshot device! Catapult Chaos turns outdoor team building in Denver Metro — Boulder, Aurora, Golden and beyond — into an opportunity to push your group’s competitive and collaborative abilities in a way that embraces the extremes of fun.
With an ample supply of wood, sticks, hinges, wheels, pins, nails, screws, glue and tools the teams will compete to build a working catapult. Each teams’ score is based on creativity, function, aesthetics, and of course how far, fast, and accurately it launches various objects. But the road to victory isn’t quite that simple! Teams will have to compete in challenges to earn their materials before they can get into the creative aspects of constructing their machine. This competition will challenge each team’s planning, engineering, inventory management and teamwork skills.
We’re constantly working to create incredible outdoor events, and each can be tailored to suit the needs of your organization. Take a look below at a small selection of the diverse range of options we have available.
