Quality Youth Team Building Activities
Trust building, improved self-esteem, and group bonding are just some of the benefits of team building activities for kids, youth, and students.
Tecumseh Team Quest works with youth groups, school groups, and sports groups, to help develop them as a team, and boost their individual growth also.
Youth of all ages face a lot of challenges today. By providing them with strong communication skills, leadership, empathy, and team development, you give them valuable skills that will carry through for the rest of their lives.
Youth team building activities help prepare today’s young people to work successfully in the business world as they begin their careers.
Hands-On Team Building Activities for Kids
The Experience-Based Learning model works well for youth. They appreciate the opportunity to “learn by doing”, which incorporates hands-on learning that involves group interaction, discussion and feedback. By taking youth out of the standard classroom/lecture type of learning environment, we have found great success by enhancing the typical educational methods with active learning in a safe, group-focused environment.
Students come together to build relationships, learn things about each other, their strengths and weaknesses, and how to develop trust about those weaknesses. This is the heart of team building for their age. They are challenged to solve problems in the most effective and creative ways possible.
Personalize Your Youth Team Building Experience
At Tecumseh Team Quest, the programs are designed to fit the needs of your youth group, school or sports team. These programs enable teams to work effectively together. When they are asked to find solutions and depend on each other, they take responsibility, support one another, and focus on strengths rather than weaknesses.
Our professional staff meets with the group leaders to tailor the Team Quest experience, in an effort to maximize the desired team building and overall learning experience. Specific youth and team issues are discussed and a customized adventure program experience is created. Activities have included the low ropes team challenge course, the high ropes course, the climbing tower, and other team building games and events.
As always, all the team-building activities for youth follow our philosophy of Challenge by Choice, which means that each participant is responsible for deciding where the limits of their activity will be as they accomplish the team building activities.
