Kayak Teambuilding on Peanut Island

Who knew you could find so much to do on one tiny little man made island! In the past, Peanut Island was used as a JFK Cuban Missile Crisis Bunker and a Coast Guard Station. Over the years it has shifted into a public park with lots to do. With over 20 campsites, a picnic area, and the Maritime Museum; Peanut Island has become the place to play! On either side of the inlet you can find dining, shopping, and lodging, making this the perfect destination for your next teambuilding event. Recently we had a client looking to host a teambuilding program, but wanted it to be something out of the ordinary, out of the office, and out of this world. We made the suggestion to take this group to Peanut Island for a Kayak Teambuilding. Of course, a day on the water seemed like the perfect thing for this group to do, Paragon got to work! A plan was in place, and time to execute the fun. As everyone gathered at the marina you could tell that the excitement was building. Teams had been pre-selected and believe me; it only got more interesting as the pairs found out who their kayak mate would be. The guides gave some instruction and after that they were off! The group participated in team challenges while in the water and surprisingly…no one ended up in the inlet! Once the group arrived at Peanut Island Park they had some refreshments and of course more teambuilding! The dynamics of the activity changed drastically, in the water they all seemed to be somewhat “in the same boat” no one knew really what to expect, but once their feet touched land it was a whole new ball game….literally. By the end of the program you could tell that the group had a whole new outlook on work. They had faced challenges together, come up with solutions together, and had fun with each other. A true teambuilding success story!
