Corporate Castaways

Teams become tribes and compete head to head in Survivor style challenges and castaway themed activities. Based on the popular TV show your group will benefit from the experience, and no one has to get voted off the island.

The tribe has spoken; this event is fantastic!

Corporate Castaways starts with an Opening Ceremony to introduce the event and present each tribe. The main group is divided into smaller tribes prior to the event to allow you to select the tribes from a strategic perspective and to allow each tribe to "theme" themselves. Tribes are encouraged to accessorize and create a unified tribal appearance before the games begin.

Teams will compete head to head in up to 9 different challenges. Most challenges have been recreated and based directly from the TV series. Each challenge is designed to address a variety of team issues such as trust, leadership, strategy, and communication. Results from all the challenges are tabulated in time for the Closing Ceremony. The winning tribe is announced and will be recognized as the ultimate Corporate Castaways Champions.

Event Overview & Features

Based on the hit TV series, the “Corporate Castaways” team building program utilizes up to 9 challenges, many of which are replicas of the actual challenges as seen on the show. In our version we do not vote individuals off. Instead, these challenges are all designed to get the members of each tribe working together both physically and mentally, and to highlight individual and team strengths. They are also immense fun. There is a lot of interaction and camaraderie generated by the challenges. Challenges are suitable for participants of all skills and abilities.

    "Corporate Castaways: The Canadian Outback was well received by our team and definitely of benefit and value. When a group of individuals gain respect for the strengths of their team members and understand their weaknesses and learn to work with them, how can you not have benefit? Thanks so much for bringing the event together; you are professionals all the way!"

    "Corporate Castaways: The Canadian Outback was very well received and was the first experiential learning for most participants. My strategic objectives for the entire two-day meeting were to build team unity, establish trust, foster communication, and build consistency. I am confident that this was accomplished based on the feedback of participants. We now have an excellent base from which to build."

    - Manulife Financial

    “We had a fantastic time during the Corporate Castaway event! Everyone (of all abilities) was able to participate and show their strengths. It will be a great conversation for years around the water cooler! The team was fantastic and totally took care of everything, dealing with complications as they came up. They are friendly, fun-loving and very adaptable.”

    - DNN Corporation

    "Corporate Castaways: The Canadian Outback was a fantastic experience for our entire company and we will be talking about it for many years. Everyone had a great time and it was more fun than we expected (and our expectations were very high after the Amazing Chase from last year!). The challenges really taught us how to work together very rapidly and use each other’s ideas to come up with better ways to save time and effort on the challenges."
