Team-Building Activities

Build Teamwork Skills with Fun Team Activities!

The UCLA Lake Arrowhead Lodge proudly serves groups from all over the world, with all types of attendees, objectives and agendas. We’ve learned that the key to creating and maintaining a successful business, operation or team lies in strengthening the connections between people. As a result, we’ve created Arrowhead Adventures — Team Building & More!

Professional Team Building Programs

These activities incorporate communication and cooperation, decision-making and conflict resolution, and commitment to common objectives in an environment that encourages risk taking and change. By combining physical challenges, creative thinking, and problem solving, participants are motivated to use their talents to achieve the greatest results both individually and as a team

Bruin Chef Challenge

Hosted by our Executive Chef, this is our version of TV's Iron Chef. Large groups are divided into smaller teams and provided with their own cooking station and staple ingredients. Groups are challenged to work together to create an entree which will be judged for its ingenuity, taste, appearance, and application of teamwork.

High Ropes Challenge Course

This course can be booked as part of the Professional Team Building Program or separately, as an individual-based adventure. The Challenge Course is based on a "challenge-by-choice" philosophy, with all activities being voluntary as participants push their perceived limitations, earn a true thrill, and make lasting memories.

Room Escape Challenge

Locked in a room full of mysteries together, your group must work against the clock to solve one puzzle after another, with each success building on the last, until the group achieves victory... or until time runs out. The Room Escape Challenge takes a good mix of determination and collaborative thinking to master.

Scavenger Hunt

This hunt is a fun way to explore our historic property as your group races against the clock to solve clues and reach the finish. Each clue leads to a location on our property where teams will learn more about each other or test their trivia knowledge.


We offer guided tours for hikers of all levels, from an easy family trail to an advanced, rigorous trail. The Beginner Hike takes groups through a historic Serrano Indian settling area where metates, while the Advanced Trail is a rigorous hike that takes groups up to one of the tallest peaks in the area. This excursion offers a truly stunning view of the valleys and ranges of the surrounding wilderness.


Available seasonally, we have enough kayaks to accommodate 12 guests for a 1.5 hour tour led by our guides. Minimum of 4 people, maximum of 12 per tour.

Mountain Biking

Biking is a great way to have fun together while exploring the local forest. The Beginner Trail is relatively flat and weaves out into the forest. This tour provides a good workout with great sightseeing, while the Advanced Trail is for experienced riders who will enjoy a single-track trail through meadows and steep hills.


A local yoga instructor will visit the property and host the class in one of our conference rooms or on our relaxing Zen Deck. Minimum of 6 people to book. Classes are one hour long.
