Bridge to the Future™
Our Bridge to the Future™ team building activity involves numerous sub-teams working together utilizing their project management skills and creative ingenuity.
The ultimate goal is to build an actual bridge which has the strength and integrity to support the weight of a manned golf cart driven across it! There are two amazing aspects of this bridge construction event.
First, each section will be an independent and colorful artistic representation of the organization’s future mission and goals.
And second, the structure is assembled using only cardboard and duct tape as the principal building materials. When these two aspects of the program are revealed to your group, you’ll hear the room fill with gasps and disbelief.
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 be called together at three occasions to discuss and share strategies and timing with the other teams. These meetings are critical since all of the teams must complete their sections simultaneously.
The finished product of this bridge building game is a wonderfully creative interpretation of the current status and future vision of the organization. After proving the integrity of the bridge with the golf cart, resulting in cheers and a sense of relief, the entire team will gather on the bridge for group photos. This is truly one of our best team building activities.
Golf cart option may not be possible based on availability of a golf cart, and the property’s ability to allow a golf cart in the event space.

"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
