It's great fun to use stilts in a teambuilding game. Every group seems to have someone who can walk on stilts. I find this amazing.
This activity lends itself to discussions about achieving success as a team and completing a “journey” as a team.
Prior to starting the activity you might ask the group to identify and clarify their vision. Ask the group to write this vision on a large foam core board and stand it up on the other side of the river. Tell the group there job is to reach their vision.
Before allowing them to start, have the group identify all the obstacles (in real life) that make it difficult to achieve their vision - - write these on index cards and place them in the "river". The metaphor is now set up.
