Wilmette’s Gillson Park offers 60 acres of beautiful lakefront property, ideal for picnics, bicycling, volleyball, soccer, tennis, and serving as the host location for the Team Summer Olympics.
We realize not all team members bring the same level of athleticism. No worries! Events include a series of wacky, fun and collaborative team challenges. Corporate Teams will customize the level of activity based on what works best for your team. Examples include: Ready, Set, Jump; Team on their Toes; Can You Hear Me Now?; Up, Up in the Air; Step, Step, Squeeze; Volleyball Relay; Home Run Derby; Frisbee Golf Challenge. Indoors or Outdoors, Summer Olympics will keep your team energized and fully engaged in this fast-paced competitive event.
Let the Games Begin!
The program will begin at a central location in the selected ‘Field of Play Area’ with teams gathered for the ‘Team Foundation’ and ‘Team Briefing’. Teams will learn the rules of engagement for the overall event.
Teams engage in intensely collaborative ‘active’ problem-solving challenges that require strategic thinking and effective communications.
Teams reconvene for a short team debrief and team results! From mid-level teams to executive teams, this Event requires strong collaboration to achieve results. It’s not the fastest team that wins – it is the smartest team!
We provide you a compilation of team photos in a high energy photo slideshow post program.
