OUR STORY WE CARE CONTACT US Blog

What started out as a small adventure company, quickly grew into North America’s leading team building and corporate training provider. Here's our story...

Back in 1992, two brothers James and Steve Corbett, started Outback Adventures & Events, an adventure company that sold paddling and hiking expeditions. As the business grew, so did the type of activities that the company offered, which soon went on to include ski and white water rafting trips to individuals, social functions, and large corporate groups.

Then one day in 2000, one of our long-time customers at McDonalds asked about the possibility of creating a team event based on the popular TV show, “Survivor.” Never shy of a challenge, the team worked day and night to build a Survivor challenge. It ended up being a huge success, and became our very first team building activity.   

Our team building activities have continued to grow and evolve over the years. We now offer over 30 activities to help groups and organizations build relationships through memorable experiences. Many of our team building activities are still based on popular TV shows, but we also offer charity, budget-friendly, and social networking events. We’ve developed our range of activities to fit any group size, dynamic, ability and location.

In 2015, we introduced training and development programs run by professional facilitators who specialize in skill development! and experiential learning. These popular programs are interactive and effective ways to develop the skills of your team. They include topics such as leadership, management, sales, communication, and presentation. 

That same year, we began offering coaching and consulting programs for leadership teams. These multi-day programs can help your team get to the heart of your professional challenges, and uncover new opportunities within your business.

In 2018, we officially changed our name to Outback Team Building & Training to better reflect the services we offer. To date, we have helped over 6,000 corporate groups build relationships through memorable experiences across North America. Our customers continue to send us positive feedback and testimonials every week, and we do our best to impress every single person who chooses to work with us.
