Team building on Veteran's Day or any day

Operation Military Care

In Operation Military Care, teams work through a series of fun and engaging teamwork exercises leading to the assembly of care packages for soldiers and military personnel overseas!

What better day than Veteran's Day to consider a unique team building event. Operation Military Care is an impactful program that will challenge teams through an engaging team-building activity leading up to the final challenge – the care package assembly for our military heroes!

Teams have all the fun while TeamBonding coordinates all logistics, leads and facilitates the program and provides high quality gifts that include the Top 20 most requested items for our service men and women. Packages are created for soldiers who rarely or never receive anything from home. Teams really make a difference by acknowledging their service and providing these special gifts.

It all begins with the entire group broken up into sub-teams and placed in different starting locations. From the start, these teams are required to gather items and materials that will comprise the care packages. These items are spread over a large area. Travel is difficult as the team must use ‘stepping stones’ (walking pads) during the journey. From competition to collaboration, teams realize that only a shared, concerted effort will allow the project task to be completed on time. At the end of the activities, teams use their points to purchase items for the care packages for their soldiers. This is the highlight of the event as teams are eager to give back to such a worthy and rewarding cause.

After the packages are created, teams tally their points and the real “winning” team is declared — our troops overseas! Be amazed at how energizing and uplifting this event can be for everyone involved, and what your team can accomplish back at work after an event that pulls everyone together for such a rewarding cause. If timing and circumstances allow, we coordinate with a local soldier who accepts the gifts on behalf of our soldiers abroad.

This event offers an optional post-activity facilitated discussion, which of course can be customized to underscore your event theme, company positioning, etc. This is one project that will be talked about for months in the workplace!

Consider Operation Military Care for your next team building event and give back to those soldiers whose lives are on the line for freedom. This event is one of 75 unique team building events offered by TeamBonding, one of the nation's premier team building companies providing these events for the largest companies in the world.
