Kayak Team Building

When you think of team building, you probably don’t anticipate needing equipment like life jackets and paddles –– what a shame! It’s time to break away from the mundane, run-of-the-mill trust falls, and pursue a fun, exciting team building experience that your employees will WANT to attend. 

Kayak Team Building with On Purpose Adventures in partnership with Nature Adventures is a great way to bring your team together on purpose, with a purpose. Utilizing elements from On Purpose's CORE offering, Communicating Open-minded Real-time Engagement is the framework of this program, and puts your team in real-life scenarios that build genuine connection.

On Purpose instructors guide your group through introductory exercises on land, designed to shake loose any hesitation and get communication and creative thinking juices flowing. After paddle and safety instructions, your group gets on the water in a combination of single and tandem kayaks. Smaller units are first tasked with solving challenges, and are later combined to face the same challenges as an entire team with more obstacles.

Each individual contributes to the overall success of your kayaking adventure and team tasks, sharpening skills like teamwork, communication and group problem solving. As you cruise through this experience, your team will become more cohesive while building confidence on the water.

If you are not looking for this level of facilitation or structure, kayak and paddleboard tours in Charleston SC with naturalist guides or rentals where you can go out on your own are provided by our sister company, Nature Adventures headquartered on Historic Shem Creek.

For a team building experience you won’t soon forget, break out of the “boredroom” and get out onto the water with On Purpose Adventure’s Kayak Team Building.

  • On Purpose is a well run operation that allowed our group to gain insights into Charleston's storied history while exploring the city on foot in an effort to complete the Holy City Wanderer scavenger hunt and win our Company Challenge. The technology was very user friendly and helped to improve the overall experience with fun challenges, some involving taking pictures and videos with our team. Definitely a memorable experience and one that I would recommend!
