TEAM-BUILDING FUN & EXHILARATING COMPETITION

Teams must work together on land and in the water during a selection of laugh-inducing paddle relay races and energy-demanding lifeguard challenges. Your school teams will also face against one another both in the water and on the land in a series of Californian style beach games. Test your might and mettle with the tug’o’war, then harness your collective brainpower and display an effective show of teamwork with the surf life saving challenge. You might be a pro with a volleyball, but will you beat the dizzy stick?

It’s a session crammed full of fun and laughter, but remember: only one team can win!

HEALTHY COMPETITION

The Cornish Challenge is open to non-swimmers and its flexibility means the beach games can be designed to suit all types of groups, fitness levels and school ages. With a variety of games and a huge degree of flexibility, our Cornish Challenge is a great choice for school classes with different outlooks on the ocean. Some of your gang may love the water, but maybe some would prefer to play games on dry land; this is one challenge where the choice is entirely up to them!
