Team Activities

The Orchard Centre’s pioneering activity exercises are focused on the integration of fun activities with a structured programme that provides a real return for companies.

These programmes can be run for large and small groups, both on site and off site. These modules provide a range of fun and challenging team activities, giving the participants a sense of achievement and competitiveness, in a challenging environment. They are designed specifically to have all members of the group participating together throughout the event.

These highly successful sessions have provided valuable learning experiences for thousands of participants, by transforming groups of individuals into teams who communicate, trust more, solve problems together and work more effectively with each other, developing a more cohesive, motivated and effective team.

Our activity programmes are tailored to each client’s specification and objectives, so if it’s a structured training event or just pure fun we will make it happen for you.
