Creativity Challenge Realignment of company goals and reorganizations require employees to start thinking more laterally, creatively and imaginatively. The creativity challenge urges the participants to think outside the box and deliver creative real time solutions to simple problems.
Tea Picking, Roasting & Packaging Challenge This is nakedâ€™s special challenge and requires the teams to call on a variety of skill sets. The activity begins with teams trying to pick the best quality tea leaves. Afterwards the team is split up, with half roasting their tea and the other half designing and making the packaging. Upon completion, the tea will be judged based on tea quality and packaging design.
Treasure Hunt This event can be executed both indoors and outdoors. It requires the teams to decipher clues, identify red herrings and follow directions in order to find the treasure. The best team is the one which is able to work through the clues most accurately and quickly.
Raft Building This event is suitable for the summer months when the water is warmer. It involves 2-3 groups challenging each other to build a raft using local materials in order to cross a stretch of water. The event fosters teamwork and creativity and the teams will be judged according to speed, safety and strength.
Orientation This is the most physically demanding of the naked team building activities. It requires the teams to navigate the forest to find clues which will lead them to the finish point. Map reading, GPS reading, cooperation, initiative and endurance are the necessary skills required to finish this challenge successfully.
