Blind Tent Pitching is a great way to illustrate the importance of communication, collaboration and seeing a job through from inception to completion. Working in small groups, teams will be tasked with the job of erecting a 2-man tent. Sounds simple!
Here’s the twist; all team members bar one will be blindfolded and they’ll have to put the tent up without instructions.
Blind Tent Pitching is a fun and illuminating team building activity that will break down barriers and bond a group quickly.
How does it work?
Following a welcome and a brief from our facilitator coordinators, the group will be split into teams and provided with blindfolds and tents.
Using their ingenuity, resourcefulness, verbal communication, logical thinking and observation skills, the team leader(s) will direct the blindfolded tent builders.
Will they listen, communicate and used team work principles to pitch the tent successfully?
