The Stanwick Lakes Team Challenge
Set against the unique backdrop of a beautiful 700 acre nature reserve, Stanwick Lakes offer a wide range of activities aimed at teams from the private and public sector, associations and social groups. We work with small local companies to worldwide household names with great success.
We have a number of interesting, challenging or fun packages and, where possible, can deliver a customised programme around your specific needs. The objectives can range from “just having some fun” to addressing specific team working, teambuilding, communication, management or leadership issues.
The activities can be chosen from any of three groups which broadly described as…
Outdoor/High activity – examples are…
- The assault course – great fun and quite competitive, 2 or 3 timed runs
- The orienteering course – British Orienteering Association designed course with 3 levels of difficulty
- The treasure hunt – on foot or on bikes, finding multiple clues around the site within a set time
- On the lake – canoeing activity
- Den building – in our wooded area
Outdoor/Medium activity (Usually held on the terrace adjoining the training suite) – examples are…
- The tower of power – needing team co-operation and communication
- Scoop ball – as above
- Plan, Do, Review – great fun game with serious learning outcomes
Indoor/Light activity – examples are…
- Egg transfer – delicate manoeuvring between team members
- Bridge over the river – giant Lego with tasks ranging from 1 hour to 1 day
- Moving statue – great for team working and losing inhibitions
Each exercise is briefed and then reviewed to ensure the objectives have been met (even if it is purely for having fun!).
Meals and refreshments are added to the event plan, and every participant receives a “Stanwick Lakes” medal at the end.
We offer packages that can include full days, or the increasingly popular half day company/department meeting with a half day activity session. A big hit with our clients has been the BBQ on the terrace as a great way to end the day.

We are a large corporate company who reward our staff for their hard work with various activities each quarter. We discovered Stanwick Lakes on the internet and gave them a call. Not only did we find them exceptionally easy & flexible to work with, but they also catered for a wide age range and kept everyone engaged for the whole event. The food was fantastic, first class, and the activities were really fun. We will be coming back annually to see the new friends we have made at Stanwick Lakes. Fantastic venue, fantastic staff – thanks for having us.
On behalf of the team, I wanted to write and say thank you for the event you hosted for us this week. The feedback from the team has been fantastic. The venue was bright, airy and inspirational. The service was excellent and there is a real buzz in the team which has been created by the team building exercises we did in the afternoon.
Thank you so much for an excellent evening a couple of weeks ago. I think the bruises and aches and pains have nearly all gone now. Who would have thought an obstacle course would have been so testing! Please pass on our thanks to everyone involved in making the evening such a success. The activities were engaging and the BBQ was excellent. We received a lot of positive feedback from the staff and we couldn’t have been luckier with the weather.
