This past June, Sundance Vacations employees braved the raging rapids and held a whitewater rafting team building event for the STSR (Senior Telephone Service Representative) and QAR (Quality Assurance Representative) departments. The event took place at Whitewater Rafting Adventures and Adventure Trail, located in Nesquehoning, PA. The department managers banded together to provide a unique, fun environment in which themes of leadership, cooperation, communication, and problem-solving skills were focused on and learned. It was a great opportunity for the team to let loose and experience something truly thrilling! Whitewater rafting proved to be the perfect exercise for the team. It required the departments to come together and give each individual member a feeling of importance and purpose. By the end of the adventure, the teams were moving down the rapids as a united group (after overcoming a few hiccups, of course!) Each team member took charge like expert rafters!
Patricia Rivers, QAR Department Manager, said that the whitewater rafting excursion was, “fun and scary at the same time!” She went on to say that she “had to be quick on thinking, following directions, and definitely working as a team. It was a beautiful day out with co-workers, friends, and nature.”
Dawn Labarr, a Quality Assurance Representative (QAR), added, “after an hour of working together we all became pros. Would I do it again? Absolutely! I loved it!”
Sundance Vacations loves to strengthen the bonds between co-workers and hopes to hold more team building events soon!
