Team Building in Golden, BC

We know how important employees are to a business.

Different team building activities have helped our own crew develop better working relationships. We've designed our program to provide the same for you.

Rafting itself is the perfect team building activity. You'll spend the day together, working as a team to navigate the river.

We also have several activities for a corporate team building event, all of which involve some element of white water rafting or river culture.

The Kicking Horse River offers some of the best white water rafting in British Columbia and Alberta. Given Golden BC's close location to the border, we are only a short drive from Calgary, Canmore and Banff.

Have a look at our programs below and please contact us if you would like a more detailed description of any of our team building activities.

Competing in the annual Raft Guide Olympics

RAFTING OLYMPICS

Modelled on our own annual ‘Guide Olympics’, these activities allow teams to compete against each other in different events. Each event requires participants to learn new skills and recognize the strengths of their colleagues. They'll work together to execute the challenges as quickly as possible.

Events to choose from include:

Raft Stack, Paddle Toss, Obstacle Course, Rafting Outfit Race, Throw Bag Toss, Tug-of-War

Rafting with Glacier Raft Company, Golden BC

RIG A RAFT

This activity requires team members to work together to get their raft ready for the river. Based on a ‘sample raft’ that is all ready to go, groups will equip, inflate, fasten and prep their boat.

Attention to detail is critical for this challenge. Rigging the rafts correctly is critical for the safety of our guests and gear. One of our guides will be overseeing, and teams will need to communicate and problem solve to meet our standards.

Swimming in the Kicking Horse River, Golden BC

GUIDE A RAFT

The idea of this activity is to have all members of the team learn a new skill together. They'll use the knowledge they gain to navigate their raft downstream.

One of our professional guides will teach the basics of reading water, river dynamics and oaring techniques. It will then be up to the team to work together to get where they need to go. This activity is only possible on calm, class 1 flat water.
