Bridge to the Future™
Our Bridge to the Future™ team building activity involves working together in sub-teams to build a bridge which represents the future goals and aspirations of your organization, and has the structural integrity to support the entire group for team pictures!
There are two amazing aspects of this bridge construction event. Each section will be an independent and colorful artistic representation of the organization’s future mission and goals, AND the structure is assembled using only cardboard and duct tape as the principal building materials.
With a focus on project management skills and creative ingenuity, team leaders will be chosen and are responsible for ensuring tight deadlines are met. Each team will delegate roles including cardboard cutters, column designers, decorators, and builders.
Team leaders will occasionally be called together for project manager meetings to discuss and share strategies, and to cross share information with other leaders to ensure total team success. These meetings are also critical since all of the teams must complete their sections simultaneously to be brought together for the final bridge assembly.
Once the bridge is completed, the entire group will walk onto the bridge to prove its structural integrity and to pose for memorable team photos.
If a golf cart is available at the venue and accessible to the event space, for an added test of strength, it can be driven across the bridge to the cheers of your participants. This is truly one of our best team building activities.

"Bridge to the Future was the ultimate building activity! The pressure to ensure that our section of the bridge would be strong enough made the activity very exciting. When we all stood on the bridge for pictures afterwards, I think that our manager said it best, “It was more than about building a bridge, it was building relationships that will carry into the future”, and that is exactly what we wanted from this event."Paul - Johnson & Johnson

"The facilitator and his group led the team on a positive, open minded no-excuses journey for 3 hours. It was a great experience! I had so many people thank me for organizing the best team building event they had participated in. The best part was the joining of strengths from Science, PR , Customer Service, H.R., etc., to create a bridge – leaving the past behind and looking to a positive future."Gilly - HR Lithium Technologies
