A cheerful atmosphere, valuable discussions, an exciting challenge - this is how the team day of the almost 30 Coroplast apprentices can be summed up.
The apprentice team day began in bright weather with a joint breakfast on the shores of Lake Baldeney in Essen. After introductions and a question and answer session on the day's activities, the time had come: four teams were formed and the raft-building adventure could begin.
A very nice day indeed! The apprentices had the opportunity to get to know each other better. Everyone was able to contribute their personal strengths and in the end all teams managed to build a functional raft.
Three floats, large quantities of rope and bamboo sticks - these were the materials our apprentice teams had to use to build a seaworthy raft. Creativity, cooperation and communication were required. With a lot of team spirit, they planned, tried, changed - and with a few decisive expert tips from our event partner Deepwood , everyone finally had a seaworthy solution with which they could go to the start.
The teams mastered the trip with flying colors and picked up another task in the middle of the lake: By the time they returned to shore, each crew was to write a 9-line poem.
This was not the end of the versatility challenge: After sailing communication game was played in which each apprentice was given a picture card that no one else was allowed to see. Only by describing the motif did the teams have to put the cards in the right order.
Having barbecue together an exciting day come to an end. After all, our apprentices had a lot to talk about after three exciting challenges.
All apprentices took the opportunity on Team Day to network and strengthen their sense of community. They tested their personal limits, discovered unexpected potential and gained new experience in the areas of teamwork and communication. And last but not least, the day was great fun for everyone involved. We are already looking forward to the Apprentice Team Day 2024!
