Ideal Team Building Events For Small Groups

These events are the best options for groups of 30 or less people. No matter how small your group is, you’re a big deal to us and these experiences will get your group to live large:


Escape rooms are popping up in cities all over the world where small groups of people are locked in a room and must solve a series of clues and puzzles in order to “escape.” Why are they so popular? Because they are fun! Now you can offer this type of experience as a team building event to your group without leaving your meeting location.

Float Your Boat

“Whatever floats your boat” are good words to live by. But, in this team building activity, they are essential, as teams must build a boat capable of holding two of their teammates in a race against all other teams. The boat-building materials? Nothing more than cardboard and duct tape!

Icing on the Cake

Teams may think this event is a piece of cake, but there’s a lot to do if they want to top all other teams! Teams must decorate a cake, chef’s hats and aprons and whip up a presentation that’s better than all others, or they’ll get creamed!


This is one activity that will really bowl over your guests…even if they don’t know a turkey from a five-bagger! Teams compete in two unique bowling challenges designed to ensure that even the worst bowler “strikes” a chord with their team.

Look and Locate Photo Scavenger Hunt

Teams attempt to earn points in a variety of ways including searching for scavenger items from a list, deciphering images of items taken at an extreme close up and then finding those items in real life, answering questions by visiting certain locations around the event area, taking team photos to fit specific captions, and solving puzzles.

Make A Scene

It is usually considered impolite to make a scene. But, during this team building activity, it’s actually encouraged as teams create their own must-see commercial or film for their company using an iPad with a custom Make a Scene event app to help them create their unique video. The activity ends with an awards ceremony where all films are viewed and prizes awarded to those the audience enjoyed best.

Success Factor

The Success Factor puts teams to work as they vie to be the most successful as they accomplish two separate business-related tasks. Individuals participate on two different project teams throughout this event that celebrates both team and individual successes!

The Great Race

Teams have an amazing time chasing down locations where they acquire points for performing physical, mental and creative challenges. This versatile activity can be conducted as a road rally, or on foot in an area of interest.

Think Tank

Like a shark, in the business world, you must constantly be moving to stay alive. What’s next? Bigger? Better? And, like the television show, Shark Tank, this activity moves your group towards answers to those questions! Teams must put as much thought into their presentation as their invention, to wow the judges.

Two Can Play That Game

Looking for fun, fast-paced competition that will leave your guests wanting to “play” more? If you’re looking for a great way for two teams to go head to head, then Two Can Play That Game is the perfect team building activity for you. This event is fashioned after Hollywood Game Night, but the stars of the show are your very own colleagues. After a series of challenges, find out which team’s stars will fall and which team will stand out in the spotlight!

Small Group Team Building Case Study

Reynolds Plantation Nights

Our meeting planner was trying to come up with a team building event that her company president, a huge fan of Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, would be excited about for her small group of 15 directors staying at Reynolds Plantation.

How it worked.
It was “go time!” We created Reynolds Plantation Nights, which pitted 3 teams of 5 people against one another. Teams had to decorate and don racing jumpsuits, then create a racecar named and fashioned after one of their clients (not Wonder Bread). Teams’ imaginations ran as wild as Ricky Bobby’s cougar with the designs. But in the end, it was their hearts that were racing as they headed towards the finish line. Each car was driven by one person and propelled by two-man horsepower. It was more than just speed that counted – they also had to complete several pit stops with their other teammates along the way. When the checkered flag was waved the president was thrilled and the meeting planner was able to do a victory lap.

The Results.
