When you want to combine fun, challenge and charity into one single event, there’s no better way than to enroll your team in our Puttin Pantry ™ workshop.
Puttin Pantry ™ offers team building that’s both challenging and enjoyable, and brings everyone together to help a local Detroit food pantry. There’s nothing more motivating than working for a common good, and our panel of expert facilitators knows exactly how to harness that energy and turn it into a productive session aimed at improving workplace skills.
What is Puttin Pantry™?
You might have guessed from the name: Puttin Pantry™ is a golf-themed workshop. Teams are tasked with the creation of a mini golf course, whose building blocks are non-perishable food items. Each team must work though obstacles to obtain its building blocks, and team members must then work together to plan and then construct their courses.
When the day’s team-building activities are complete, the food items are packaged up for distribution to charitable organizations in Detroit. You can choose your organization or we can suggest a food pantry for you.
Why Puttin Pantry ™ Works So Well
There are several stages to the Puttin Pantry™ workshop, each mimicking scenarios which might occur in the workplace…planning, organizing, decision-making to name a few.
The planning stage of the mini golf course is intense…after all, in the real world we all know that there’s creativity, vision, and engineering skills involved in bringing a new golf course to fruition!
In order to complete their course successfully, your team will have to come up with an overall plan which incorporates their vision and organizes team members in the most efficient manner. Lots of skills involved here!
