Why Participate

Are you ready for safe team building exercises and an environmental cleanup all in the same event? We are! We would like to invite you to partner with us in the Lagoona Kahuna Team Challenge on May 6th. This is a lagoon clean-up effort and a great opportunity for businesses to support an environmentally friendly initiative, build team relationships, cater to a captive audience, and gain brand recognition. It's well known that employees want to work for companies that care. Cone Research found, in fact, that 76% of millennials consider a company's social and environmental commitments when deciding where to work and 64% of millennials will not take a job from a company that does not have strong CSR practices. This event provides your employees with the opportunity to give back, participate in health and wellness activities, and, most importantly, strengthen employee relationships while having fun. 

We are happy to announce that California Watersports is back again as our venue sponsor and Pizza Port as our Pizza and Brew Sponsor. Your day includes a scavenger hunt clean-up effort via kayak, paddle board or shoreline stroll along the lagoon, and afterwards a competition in team building challenges, yet to be determined. 

How and What Does My Team Win?

You will receive points on the amount of trash collected, weeds and invasive species removed, and scavenger hunt participation. The results of your company will be totaled, and you will compete with the other businesses (on separate time slots) to be named the Big Kahuna, Little Kahuna or Mini Kahuna! The Big Kahuna receives the large commemorative paddle (to be displayed in your office or virtual zoom backgrounds) until the next year when the competition begins again. We have a Small and Mini Paddle in the works as well!

Have Fun and Win

Every team member receives event day apparel, preferred water vessel and food and brew. Music and games complete the beach party comradery. 

The team with the most amount of points after all events will win the prized paddle from The Lagoona Kahuna Team Challenge.
