We begin this activity with a range of team challenges as each team tries to earn wagon parts and tools in order to build a Red Wagon. Once teams successfully complete the building of the wagon, the stakes are raised as teams shift to the next phase of competition, to get the goods that will then fill their wagon. This high-energy activity quickly goes from competitive to collaborative as everyone tries to fill all wagons to capacity. Wagons get filled with stuffed animals, small toys, books, writing supplies and sporting equipment, along with a hand written card from your team and are given to children in need. True North will seek out a local agency that will identify children in need of and deserving of donations.
Note: This program can be structured either as collaborative or competitive.
This is a fantastic program to participate in at the holidays or towards the end of the school year.
