Camping team building event

Most team building events take place at hotels, but what if you want to do something really different?

The event in the photograph was for a London media company who came down to the New Forest for the weekend and stayed in authentic tipis. These are great fun and comfortably sleep six people.

A catering company was brought in and good food was laid on with a bar. The experience included a camp fire and our Hunt The New Forest Beast activity.

A wild eyed local visted the camp on the first night and told stories of a terrible beast which roamed those parts. Campers were advised not to stray too far from camp.

The next day the teams head off on a treasure hunt style event where the challenge is to track down The New Forest Beast. This event is great fun and really gives people the opportunity to have a memorable and enjoyable experience together.

The campsite that we use has proper toilets and showers, so it’s not too basic and while not the same as a hotel makes up for it in fun what you lose in luxury.

The New Forest is a great location for this event but there are campsites around the UK and even in London, so there are options everywhere.

    I love the New Forest! Living on it’s doorstep, I have to say that the New Forest has many wonderful things to offer, and the illustrated activity sounds great fun. There is something about getting back to nature and living with the basics that adds a certain extra appeal. I don’t know whether it reminds us of fun childhood activities or not, but certainly paves the way for a great, memorable event.

      I agree. I think that companies really get a chance to ‘get away from it all’ when the choose a destination like the New Forest. At one camp site team building attendees regularly wake up to find a herd of deer grazing outside their tents.
