Team Teddy Rescue Bear

Team Teddy Rescue Bear

This is the original teddy bear team building event! Each team has puzzles to solve, codes to decipher, and secrets to unlock in order to acquire the resources that they need (part by part) to build a series of custom teddy bears.

Team Teddy Bear is a unique way to bring your own team together while providing priceless comfort to children who experience a car accident, house fire or injury. More than 11 million children are transported for medical care each year. A Rescue Bear given by a police officer or firefighter can be a powerful way to help ease pain and worries, calming a child significantly at a potentially frightening time.

Participants divide into small work teams. Each group must complete a series of games/challenges to earn team points. For the final thirty minutes or so, teams use their accumulated points to “purchase” all parts and accessories necessary to build a high-quality Rescue Bear. Teams choose shoes, clothing and props to add life and personality to their furry new creations. Even the bear assembly itself is served up as friendly competition, with groups racing to complete yet another novel but highly engaging task. Each group also makes a cape, handbag, or some other piece of clothing, which will be personally signed by each team member.

Once the bears are completed, they are presented to your local police or fire department. To maximize the event’s positive emotional impact, you can even arrange for a fire truck and/or police car to show up. The stories these local heroes tell can really bring your newly created bears to life.

Participants in this fun, challenging program exercise critical thinking and problem solving skills while taking part in a wonderfully altruistic event. For everyone involved, the benefits are truly priceless.
