CMRCA combined with Rocket Events and the Mandarin Oriental Dhara Dhevi, Chiang Mai to deliver an outstanding team building event for Standard Chartered Bank.  The program combined team performance, corporate social responsibility and our Rise to the Challenge Adventure elements into an action-packed day.  The program took place at both the Mandarin Oriental and offsite in some of the Chiang Mai region’s pristine wilderness areas. The day started with a series of team initiatives designed to help teams begin to develop best practices they would use throughout the day.  This led to an incredible Fantasy Expedition.

During the Expedition, seven Standard Chartered participants were paired with eight children from the School of Hope.  The School of Hope is located on the Burmese border two hours north of Chiang Mai.  The majority of the children are stateless and are very underprivileged.  During the Fantasy Expedition, the teams of adults and children had to solve cunning challenges like retrieving an object from a bottomless well, navigating a gigantic spider web, and sneaking past monstrous lizards by crossing hot lava pits!  The adults and children celebrated with a fabulous feast.  From there it was on to our Rise to the Challenge Adventure where teams were required to use GPS units, radio communication, kayaks, bicycles, navigation, problem solving and team work to handle a challenging adventure course.

Thank you to Standard Chartered for bringing such incredible energy and enthusiasm to the day, especially during the Fantasy Expedition with the children from the School of Hope.  You brightened the faces of these incredible children and helped to create a unique and powerful experience.  We had an incredible time working with you and look forward to seeing you in the future!
