... Team activities you must try in Auckland

Bikes for tykes

One of the most powerful charity team building programmes in New Zealand is Bikes For Tykes – the orginal charity bike building programme in New Zealand. Teams work through a series of activities with the overall goal to build a bike from scratch and put a smile on an underprivileged child’s face.

The power in this programme is the element of surprise and emotion when your teams discover the purpose of their hard work.


Are you ready to transform your organisation’s workplace culture? (Hint: The answer is YES!).  Today it’s no secret that more and more people appreciate the importance and value of working in a positive team culture.  The FISH! Workshop provides the opportunity for you to explore how to create a workplace culture that anyone would be envious of, whilst tapping into the strengths and passions of your people and having a bit of fun of course!



Earn Your Stripes is a fun yet intense team development programme designed to bring group dynamics, problem solving and tactical survival to the fore.

What the locals are Saying

See what the locals themselves have to say on why team building in Auckland is next level…


The feedback we’ve received has been great, and I’ve also had a few suppliers who had said they’ll probably contact me to get your contact details, as the challenge we did is something they’d like to do with their own companies – so that’s great! We had a ball, it was such a great way to break the ice and have people mixing with people they’d never met before – which put a few peeps outside their comfort zone…….which is a great thing!


Yesterday’s activity was spot on. I am sure you get similar feedback from other companies but I will add my name to that list – Giles was fantastic! He took the very simple brief I provided and was masterful in weaving it into the theme of the morning’s strategic discussion. He delivered and did it brilliantly.

Water Care

Corporate Challenge ran a fun teambuilding exercise for our Strategy and Finance team “The Fugitive”. The team really enjoyed it and I had a lot of positive comments from colleagues when I turned up to work this morning. It was awesome that no-one had prior knowledge of how to complete the activities we had to undertake so it was a genuine challenge for everyone!

Meridian Energy

Yesterday was excellent! Tracey was brill and had such a great sense of humour- she was a hit with the team! The activities overall were cool, and a lot of fun.  The team was really chuffed that the bikes were going to children who deserved them. You guys do an amazing job, and we will be using Corporate Challenge again for sure.
