Several teams of your employees will work together to
perform tasks of the Old West. Taught by experienced instructors, each team
will learn the skills necessary to compete against their fellow teams.
SAFETY IS OUR FIRST PRIORITY, FUN AND EDUCATION OUR SECOND!
Setting up camp with tipis or tent, depending on era
selected. How do you turn 20 poles and 35 yards of canvas into a comfortable
shelter? Let our experts show you how!
Firemaking old west style – no matches allowed!
Safe and entertaining, your team will learn the age-old and valuable skill of
building a fire using one of several methods such as flint and steel. This
skill must be mastered in order to eat!
Dutch oven cooking. Fresh-made biscuits, hearty stew,
apple pie – all depend upon the skill of the cook in the art of controlling
temperatures without a dial!
Firearm training, safely taught by professionals. Depending on the time period
selected, the firearms used could be muzzleloaders or Winchesters. The
competition will use targets, giving points for accuracy, speed, and safety.
Canoeing – when location allows. Not always as easy as the experts make it
out to be, but a thoroughly enjoyable skill to be used again long after this
weekend is over.
Knife and tomahawk throwing.
A professional will demonstrate the finer skills of throwing the tomahawk,
and take each individual through the techniques and tips of successfully
throwing the tomahawk and making it stick into the target.
setting – how did you catch your dinner or next paycheck when ammunition was
low or undesired? Develop a new appreciation as you exercise those forearm
each team has had time to learn and practice its skills, a competition will
take place, with points awarded for speed, accuracy, and safety. First place
may win a rib-eye dinner, second may rate burgers, etc., all of which will
then be cooked at your own camp, using the skills acquired earlier (perhaps
the best of the cooking category could be head chef!). Over dinner, a group
meeting can take place to discuss the teamwork employed.
And don’t worry – after a hard day’s play, your
people can relax with a massage, gourmet dinner, or soak in the pool at one of
several locations available for this team building event!
