Igloo Building Team Building

In winter, TeamWorking suggests to try Igloo Building Team Building. The building of an igloo is an activity of ancient origins, the secret of which is traded from father to son. Just imagine your colleagues trying to build an igloo: what would they do? How would they behave? Which results would they be able to reach?

Igloo Building Team BuildingAn igloo is a shelter built with snow blocks, used by the Inuits until the seventies. The building of an igloo is, by its nature, not easy: we must use an extremely cold material like the snow to build a refuge that would protect from the low temperature. How shall we proceed? Which skills shall we use? Will it be an igloo… or just a cave dug in the snow?

The coaches will provide all the materials for the construction: saws for the snow, knives… We will also suggest the best solutions, but the realization of the refuge must be done with your own hands. Igloo Building Team Building will arouse your genius, test your manual skills, study the dynamics of cooperation: it’s a proposal fitting for any company and any corporate position.



Igloo Building Team Building: how does it work?

The colleagues will reach mountain regions where there is the right kind of snow: abundant and compact. Here they will be divided in teams and receive the necessary materials. After a short briefing, they will start building their igloo. In the final debriefing, coaches will judge the results and discuss the modus operandi of each team.

When Igloo Building is done as an Extreme Team Building activity, the Team has also to spend a night in the igloo! This will be a real challenge, that will put to the test non only the construction they built, but also their capacity of standing the cold and facing a difficult situation all together.
