BU Experiential Teambuilding Program:

Boston University’s Interactive Leadership and Teambuilding (BUILT) program provides an exciting experiential learning opportunity that focuses on building team effectiveness through creating community values, fostering creativity, and developing leadership skills. The workshops are designed for groups seeking to enhance communication, build trust, improve critical thinking, and develop respect for individual differences. Choose a single two-hour activity block or combine activities to create a half-day or full-day program. In order to provide the most beneficial experience possible, our highly trained staff will work with you to develop a program which meets your group’s desired outcomes. We welcome groups of all sizes, ages, and ability levels.

Teambuilding and Leadership Activities

The Boston University Interactive Leadership and Teambuilding program provides adventure-challenge experiences in a variety of locations.  You may choose from a menu of different locations and activities depending on your preferences.


BU’s Barreca Climbing Wall


A great place to have our experienced climbing wall staff guide you through a variety of teambuilding challenges.  Rock climbing encourages individuals to challenge themselves both mentally and physically, and triumphing over team climbing challenges is a fantastic way to encourage bonding and camaraderie within a group.  Events can range from one to four hours and can accommodate groups up to 25.


sailing-125Sailing hones many skills important for success including communication, troubleshooting, and creative thinking. Boston University has ten 420 sailing dinghies each of which can accommodate 2 – 3 adults. The sailing season at BU is May – August.  This activity is weather dependent, so alternative plans are offered in the case of inclement weather.
