Teambuilding Game: Human Ladder

The Human Ladder teambuilding activity requires a high degree of trust and coordination on the part of the climber.

Team members pair up and each pair is supplied with a wooden dowel.  A volunteer starts at one end of the human ladder and climbs (horizontally) along the rungs of the ladder.

After the climber passes over a rung of the ladder, team members "leap frog" to the front of the ladder, allowing the climber to continue climbing indefinetly.
