Exhilarating outdoor team building event on Koh Samui with paintball and zipline

Take up the challenge, experience a sense of adventure, feel the adrenaline rush and be preparing to go beyond the point of no return when you enter the combat zone! Earn you stripes is the perfect team building event for groups looking for a challenging program.

With many tasks to perform during the day, teams will be challenged to the limit to use a variety of team skills including planning, strategy, creativity, communication, problem solving, and they will require plenty of team bonding to be successful as a unit, with the activities designed to bring their troop to readiness in preparation for the final battle!

Combat Zone

On the 23rd April, 20 delegates from a well-known on-line organization did just that and took up the challenge organized by Beunite, the participants experienced a full day of action and adventure, whilst enjoying lighter moments as well.

Team building location

The locations were split into two places for this program, Sky fox cable ride at Na Muang Safari Park, and Samui Paintball Arena amongst the dense inner jungle on Koh Samui.

The team building event

A mix of team building games and challenges based around an army theme, with Paintball shootout – with up to 2000 bullets per person included!

Building Team Spirit!

The event began with the focus on building each team’s sprint and cohesion, so to do this we chose a Zip line challenge, set in the heart of the jungle, teams were set a series of individual and team tasks to complete as they overcame their fears of heights and whizzed around the exhilarating 7-line cable ride.

Challenges were allocated to each cable line which included, carrying the team egg around the course without it breaking, firing at targets with hand held catapults and paintball bullets, traveling upside down and hands free along the lines, dropping a water bomb onto a target whilst flying and finishing with an aggressive Tarzan call to lay down a marker for the next activity.

Whilst one team took to the skies, the other teams’ task was simple, get them as wet as possible by firing water at them from water guns and buckets, which added a hilariously fun element to the morning’s proceedings.

Once the first team had completed the circuit it was the turn of the second team to fly through the sky and for the first team to get their watery revenge. Both teams performed all the tasks admirably and were bonded together and ready to travel to continue to basic training camp.

The teams had enjoyed the morning, flying through the jungle with fun activities however now the Earn your stripes challenge was about to begin!

Boot Camp training Army style!

Using a selection of classic team building skills and tasks, both teams’ objective was to solve the challenges ahead and work on communication, planning and strategy and prepare them for what laid ahead.
