Team Building & Problem Solving

Here at Shoreline we've designed a number of classic problem solving and team challenges that cater for a wide range of ages and aims. We've been working with groups, students and businesses and running team challenges since 1979. We have made the most of our various local features to build exciting practical challenges that get every member of a group involved in leadership, communication, decision making and implementation skills.

Amongst our activities we have created a circus of fast paced challenges perfect for keeping small groups engaged. We've a Bude based Orienteering challenge using compasses and clues, our River crossing challenge across Bude's own river Neat, our booby trapped Project X, our Canadian Adventure canoe based challenge and our Multiple Problem Solving challenge (the MPS). Then in the Dewerstone Woods on south Dartmoor we run the day long Dartmoor Challenge which includes river crossings, rock climbing and plenty of practical puzzles to solve.

Our Bude based challenges can cater for groups numbering from 10 to 36 individuals and are spread around Bude's open spaces, canal and river. These challenges can be run either as stand alone half daily or evening sessions or integrated into a multi-activity programme along with various other team challenges and outdoor pursuits. Many elements of these challenges can be replicated in other outdoor spaces and we've particularly designed our circus of team challenges and Project X to be mobile activities.

Our Dartmoor based problem solving and team challenge day, The Dartmoor Challenge, involves meeting and then sending your group off into the Dewerstone woods where they will encounter various practical problems to solve as well as some strange but helpful characters! Its a great day with something for every member of the group, just come along dressed for the weather, with a packed lunch and an open mind!

Essential Information

These activities are highly adaptable both in terms of the attributes of the group and the environmental conditions. If you have certain outcomes in mind then please let us know in advance and we can help you to choose the best activity and theme the challenges accordingly.

We can accommodate a wide range of ages across the many activities we provide but we'd recommend the following minimum ages based on the physical and mental challenges of each activity :

  • Bude Based Team Challenges - minimum age 10.

  • Mobile Team Challenges - minimum age 10.

  • Dartmoor Challenge Day - minimum age 12.

  • Due to the nature of a good team challenge our over-seeing instructors will generally back off from being directly involved, forfilling the role of facilitator and safety cover. This means that there will be plenty of times when groups are making truly independent decisions. When making a booking have a good discussion with our team and we'll make sure we deliver the best team challenge for your group.
