Team Building is best learned when experienced hands-on. These activities and lessons will help enhance the team building experience.

The activities and ideas presented are meant to be a tool, not simpy a means to an end. If you use a team building activity, it is important to discuss the group process and apply it to "real world" situations.

Many of the links will take you to sample team building programs, as well as other resources. Your program will definitely benefit when you incorporate team building activities into your camp or recreational program culture.
