Experience a Team Building Preview
on the
Battleship New Jersey.
Get your team on-board!

You’ve sat in conference rooms, played team building games,
maybe even dangled from ropes, and now you’re looking for
something different. . . something impactful. . . something memorable.

Imagine a team building program facilitated by Team Builders Plus,
the leading team building company in the Philadelphia area
and held on one of the most notable battleships in the
US Navy's history, the Battleship New Jersey.
 

This showcase event will allow you to preview an engaging team simulation that takes place on one of the most notable battleships in the Navy's history, the USS New Jersey.

 
 

*Please note: Battleship Adventure is a fast-paced, interactive team exercise. But don't worry, the action takes place at tables within an enclosed area on the deck of the battleship which does not leave its docked location. No weapons. No violence. Just fun and learning! You'll have a blast!
