What do eight accountants and a marketer do for fun on a Wednesday afternoon in June? They Go Ape!
Recently, a small team of Schneider Downs employees took to the zipline and tree top adventure course at the Go Ape location in North Park, PA. The goal was to build team camaraderie, get outside and be active, and have a little fun. The experience turned out to be so much more rewarding.
With our team age ranging from 20-something to 50-something there were plenty of challenges for everyone ¾ from fear of heights, fear of failure, to just flat-out fear.
As we worked our way through the course, it was amazing to see everyone encouraging each other when someone else was struggling, or just needed a little extra push. As our team leader put it, “I was especially impressed at the true teamwork that you all demonstrated.” Sure, there was plenty of good-natured ribbing as the 20-somethings struggled through an obstacle, or the 30-somethings went through an obstacle the easy way, but every step of the way, everyone wished for each other’s success, bonding us all as a team.
After the event, we shared stories and laughter over a few refreshments. A great afternoon was had by all. The team has successfully returned to work, a little sore, but refreshed and bonded from a fun day out with colleagues.
So get out there with your teams and have a little fun and build some new bonds. As the pictures show, we sure did!
