The Survivor game is based on the TV show ‘Survivor’ with the themes and icons of the show. The group will be split up into teams of approximately 10 members who will strive together to become the winning team. The full day consists of 6-8 games and the teams will get their own flag, banners, torches, T-shirts and instructions for the games through tree mail.
Various physical and mental contests await the teams, amid the beauty and serenity of this tropical paradise.
Teams are challenged with a series of survivor based team games to test their cooperation, planning and leadership skills. These games will also be important for collecting equipment for the raft, the shelter, and preparing food, and take place on the beaches, in the sea and around the island, and although safety is of paramount importance, they test physical and mental endurance and prowess.
Games include team puzzles such as the minefield, cooperation and negotiation games, team relays and ropes challenges, for example the island web pathway, races and obstacles courses, blindfold events, diving and swimming games and other active team competitions and conundrums.
For some, this will be one of the nearby islands enabling teams to return in the evening to the luxury of their hotel, whereas for others seeking more of a challenge, this may mean travelling an hour or more away and into another world.
A range of islands are suitable around Koh Samui, depending on budget and the duration of the event. Koh Matsun and Koh Tan are favourites and ideally placed around 30 minutes boar ride away. Koh Matlang and Koh Som are closer, and Koh Angthong is the most remote being about one and a half hours away by speedboat.
After each game the losing teams will go to tribal council to choose a new leader. The winning team will get one point and receive a container with a piece of information or item to their advantage in the next game. This could be a piece of a puzzle, some advice or an extra turn. After the last game the team leader of the winning team receive the team idol which is a Thai mask or Buddha miniature statue.
Insurance and instructor supervision at all times is an important safety factor, and in the event of an emergency of team member withdrawal, transport and medical backup will be standing by.
Pre-briefing with survival skills training and tips, and debriefing and analysis lead by instructors will form a part of the process, both to enhance the learning outcomes and experiences of the delegates, and to ensure that the team works together is empowered to overcome the challenges it faces.
Starting with a four hour half day option, this challenge can be expanded to a twenty four hour event including one night away.
For those seeking a greater survivor challenge, an event of two days and two nights gives plenty of time to experience leaving civilisation behind, or for the ultimate adventure, several days marooned on your own private island!
