Participants solve challenges and work together as a team to build a great kennel for a needy dog.
The day begins by dividing the group into teams. Teams have to solve a series of challenges in order to win the raw materials for the next part of the activity. The biggest challenge yet is to turn these materials into a dog kennel! When finished, each team’s masterpiece is appraised and critiqued by an esteemed panel of judges.
Finally, teams discover that the kennels they’ve built will be going to a selected animal charity, providing shelter for a lost or neglected dog. A representative of the charity presents medals to the winning team. Knowing that the kennels will actually be used to help needy dogs makes all the effort worth while!
