Corporate Teams

Try something different with your team! Skyline at Markeaton is a quality outdoor adventure in the surroundings of Markeaton Park.

Our unique high ropes course is situated within Derby’s popular Markeaton Park and gives you the chance to take a break from your daily working environment to see the park from the tree tops.

Ideal for big kids looking for adventure there are a range of elements at different heights so the challenge level can be increased or varied through the session. From the highest elements there is a terrific view of the surrounding park and Derby city centre…can you see where you work from the high ropes course?!

The challenges on the high ropes course can be either personal or paired, depending on the needs of the group and we have a great deal of experience in using high ropes sessions as part of a team development or a leadership development programme, where specific learning objectives have been identified. Talk to our team about what you’re looking to achieve from your corporate team building visit.

If you’ve got a little longer to spend with us, a session on the high ropes course is great for an after work social event to reward staff or to welcome new members to your team.

The elements on the specialist corporate team building course include a pole climb, a leap of faith, a series of balancing traverses and a crate stacking challenge. Whilst the activity is physical in nature, the primary challenge is to overcome the natural perceived fear of being at height and developing individual trust and self-belief. We’ve answered some frequently asked questions about Skyline at Markeaton here. This link and all of the below links will open up new tabs.

We do recognise that for some team members going to the top height can be a step too far, therefore valuable roles are given to some team members whilst they are on the ground, including management of the safety ropes. This means that this inclusive team building activity can be enjoyed by all team members even if some are physically less able (or less willing!) or do not wish to go up high.
