Team Olympics / Team Games 

     Stop dividing your team when it’s time for recreation at your meetings. Take the time to check us out. We can provide you with the ideal team builder using the Olympics as a backdrop. All team members are challenged to work together to reach the Olympic goal of Gold. Forget some of the team playing golf, some sitting by the pool, some at the bar, some horse back riding and some sitting in their rooms. Get all of them involved and working together in a competitive environment taking the challenge, that only team building (wild west style) can provide.

     The year 2008 will be the year of the Olympics and Park Lane Ranch, Rancho De La Roca, Beaumont Ranch, Meritt Buffalo Ranch, Billy Bob's Texas and The Learning E.D.G.E. offer our Wild Wild West Team Olympics right now! These Olympic games will compete with anything they threw at us in Athens. This series of events allows corporate teams to get out of the office and really get to know one another while building the initial foundation for a stronger business team. The goals of Team Olympics are to:

  • Begin the process of building trust among team members
  • Build individual self confidence and begin to support other team members
  • To provide a healthy, competitive environment to use as an outlet for stress and to vent team issues.
  • To face challenges and learn how to encourage rather than ridicule one another.
  • To experience the Olympic excitement of taking home the Gold for accomplishing your goals.
  • Have some Fun
