Fun Group Activities: Team Bonding Ideas

It's summertime and it's peak season for company outings, team building, and team bonding. These programs are geared towards building better interpersonal relationships among colleagues. The idea is consistent with Sirota's postulation that camaraderie among work colleagues is an important factor or pillar in human motivation at the workplace. People are more motivated to work in an environment when they enjoy the company of their colleagues. Below is a list of fun group activities and team bonding ideas that will help maximize your company outing this summer.

Cebu Teambuilding Services would be more than happy to assist you organize any of these activities. You may contact us at 0923 317 3433 (Sun Cellular) or 0916 291 8488 (Globe) or email

Fun Group Activities: Island Hopping Tour

Island hopping is one of the more popular fun group activities and team bonding ideas for company outings. Since it is summer, seas are not expected to be rough and the weather is most likely sunny with very little chance of rain. The popularity of this activity also owes to the fact that it is very easy to organize, and many beautiful islands are accessible through Mactan which is not too far from Cebu City or Mandaue City where most companies are based.

Cebu Blogging Community, one of the groups that I am active in is actually doing an island hopping tour on May 23. This is part of the group's goal to build and maintain good interpersonal relationships among it's members. Batches 21 & 22 of the Facilitators' Circle, another group that I am quite active in, are also planning an island hopping trip this summer.
