Get Active: Electric Fence

Wednesday 3rd February 2016

Ideal team building obstacle task. Use two poles and piece of string or rope tied between the poles about 4 feet high from the ground.

The object is for the entire team to get over the “electric fence” (the string or rope) without getting “electrocuted” (touching the rope). No going under either! Only one team member can go over at a time, but can be helped by team-mates. Other team members can help any way they want, but once a person is over the fence, they must stay over the fence and may not come back around to help anyone. So the last person each time must somehow get over the fence without help from the other side. This game requires lots of teamwork and cooperation.

Try it with the rope at different heights, perhaps with several fences in a small obstacle course.
