Stay under budget for your next team building activity

You don’t need to spend a lot of money to have a great time with your team. With budget activities, you can use your smartphones to run your own team building challenge, at a much lower price point. The Outback Team Building & Training app makes it easy for anyone to put on an exciting and unique event.

How does it work? Groups will tackle team building challenges by submitting photos, videos, and written answers, all of which will be displayed on a live leaderboard. As teams send in their answers, the leaderboard will allow each group to see where they stand in comparison to the competition.

Budget Activities Wherever – Whenever, Starting at $5 per Person

Many of the activities can take place indoors or outdoors, and the “express” versions start at just $5 per person. Your group can play for a few hours or over a couple of days. As many of the activities are customizable, there’s no limit to the amount of people who can play. You and your team can choose from a range of smartphone-based activities, such as:

How Smartphones Make These Activities Easier and More Affordable

The smartphone technology helps make these activities more affordable, because of how easy the activities are to run. You can set up in three simple steps:

    • Step 1: Participants download a mobile app to their own smartphone (iPhone or Android) in order to access a list of challenges.
    • Step 2: Teams of four to six people compete by completing as many challenges as possible, snapping photos, taking videos, and submitting written answers.
    • Step 3: As answers are submitted, teams will automatically move up a real-time leaderboard, letting their competition see where they stand.
