The Fun Run Pontoon Challenge
The FUN RUN Pontoon Challenge is our most popular Team Building Adventure. Designed to provide an exciting and challenging activity for developing Team Spirit, this recreational boating adventure on Georgia’s Lake Lanier near Atlanta incorporates elements of a Hunt Style program and a Road Rally “on the water”!
Our staff utilize the fleet of safe, comfortable pontoon boats from Aqualand Marina and/or Port Royale Marina and assign “crew” of 8 participants per boat/team. A pre-event lesson plan is provided to all participants in advance to help them prepare for the team building exercise.
The FUN RUN begins with the Orientation where the Team Building Objectives are explained. Teams receive a Resource Kit containing a lake chart, crew positions for all participants and placards explaining rules-of-the-road and navigational markers. Dockside, the captain assigns crew positions and the team members are checked out on their own pontoon boat.
Then the real fun begins!
Time is logged, “The Challenge” is received and the teams, now in command of their own boats, set out on their adventure. Tacticians solve problems to reveal destinations. Navigators utilize the lake chart and compass to determine a course. Helmsman steers the course, Captain oversees all decisions and Foredeck Officers maintain a lookout.
All Team Members work together to answer the challenging and diverse information questions (worth points) while visiting points of interest and enjoying the invigorating beauty of Lake Lanier.
As the Teams arrive at their final checkpoint, times are logged and points are tallied. At the finale, Accomplishment Awards are given out to all participants based on most point’s accumulated, best team spirit, getting lost the most and other fun and friendly “honors”.
This team building exercise is available for groups of 8 to 80 participants in a half day format (3.5 to 4 hours).
Our team building programs at Georgia’s Lake Lanier are convenient to all companies and organizations in metro Atlanta as well as visiting corporate groups.
Corporate meeting facilities, lakeside restaurants and near-by hotel accommodations are available if needed.
