Where do you run your events?

We've run team building activities right across the country and throughout the world. Our event coordinators are located in major cities across North America and have run events in most major cities within the United States and Canada.

Because our events, people, and equipment are portable, you also benefit from this flexibility, as we can work with you in any location. Whether that be your office, a nearby park, the downtown core, the resort or hotel you've chosen to meet at, or a special place specific to your agenda.

What is the difference between your team building and employee training programs?

Team building activities are fun, rewarding and entertaining activities that bring people together in a challenging, often competitive environment, where they work together to solve problems, and complete challenges, tasks and missions. Time management, leadership and creative thinking skills are aspects of some activities, while others focus on breaking the ice and getting to know one another. Most of our team building activities are facilitated by an event coordinator who is on site to run the activity and ensure that the event goes off without a hitch.

Our employee training programs are group experiential learning activities that are facilitated by our Corporate Explorer Training team. They focus on a key skill such as project management, communication or leadership and have tangible outcomes based on business needs. Our Corporate Explorer Training programs are fun, effective and memorable, and often a great way to incorporate a learning outcome into your next group activity

How long are your employee training programs?

Training programs are typically 3-4 hours long but can be customized to meet your individual and group needs. If you are looking for a half day, full day, or multi day training program we can design a solution for you. Our training programs are not a cookie-cutter solution. Our event solutions experts and facilitators work very closely with you to ensure that your activity is customized to your unique needs.


How many people will be working at my upcoming event?

Typically there is one key facilitator or event coordinator on site at any team building or employee training program. The facilitator or event coordinator is supported by event hosts who provide assistance on the day of the event. The number of hosts will depend on your group size and the type of activity.


Canadian Outback Adventures & Events
Can you create custom employee training programs with specific learning outcomes?

Yes. Any of our employee training programs can be customized to meet your unique needs. If you have a specific learning topic or training outcome in mind our event solutions experts and facilitators can customize a program for you.
