With warmer months fast approaching and Summer on the horizon, we’re sure you’ve been thinking about your Corporate Summer Party. With so much to consider, from numbers to location, it can be difficult to find an event that works for everyone! Well, don’t worry, because Red Cactus Events are here to save the day!

We’ve put together a list of Work Summer Party Ideas, and we’ve made sure we’ve covered everything, from exciting and competitive Team Building Events to relaxed and fun events! To make it a bit easier for you, we’ve even split the ideas into Indoor and Outdoor, and Virtual categories! So, without further ado, we present our Corporate Summer Party Ideas!

Outdoor Corporate Summer Party Ideas

When it comes to Summer Team Building, Outdoor Events are the best possible option. Being in the UK, it’s so rare to get warm and sunny months, so we should enjoy them whilst we can and take our Team Building outdoors!

Did you know that Outdoor Team Building helps to increase productivity and improve office relationships? To add to the benefits of Outdoor Team Activities even more, getting outside lessens anxiety and improves your focus, leading to happier and healthier teams all round!

Let’s get into some Outdoor Summer Team Building ideas to kick things off.

1. Old School Sports Day

Enjoy a day reliving your childhood memories with Old School Sports Day! On your marks, get set, go! In teams, take part in a range of nostalgic games including Egg and Spoon Race, Sack Race, Three-Legged Race, and Space Hoppers! Cheer on your teammates as they race to become the Old School Sports Day Champions!


This is the perfect Team Building event for your next Corporate Summer Party, with a mixture of competition and games in the Summer sun! Get everyone involved and have fun in an Outdoor Summer Event guaranteed to have everyone laughing all the way!

2. Crystal Challenge

Relive the 90’s nostalgia with our Crystal Maze inspired event, Crystal Challenge! Take on themed challenge zones such as Medieval, Aztec, Industrial, and Futuristic, and take on various activities designed to test various team skills.

Teams will be competing for crystals and need to work together to get through each challenge. The aim of the game is to earn the most crystals which will give teams a chance to take on the famous Crystal Dome!

This event is a popular summer choice due to its interactivity and team games which are inclusive for all.

3. Outdoor Office Olympics

For the competitive teams among you, the Outdoor Office Olympics is the summer team building event for you! Bring the Olympic Games to your venue as your space is transformed into an Olympic arena.

Teams will compete head to head, representing countries as they aim to take the top positions on the winner’s podium. With Olympic style events including team relays, javelin, and even horse racing (!), this is a sports extravaganza you won’t want to miss out on.

4. Sun and Games

There’s nothing like the great outdoors and the feelings of summer holidays. With Sun and Games, summer themed challenges will take you back to some of your favourite summer memories!

Games can include sports day games, blindfolded tent building, beach towel art and much more! It’s the perfect summer company away day and will have your team working together, hopefully in the sunshine!

5. Bonkers Team Games

If you’re looking for something fun and different for your next Corporate Summer Party, try our Bonkers Team Games event! It’s a Corporate / Team Building Event like no other!


With your space transformed into the Bonkers Arena, take part in several team games and races to win points! Teams must work together to become the Bonkers Champions! With games including a Giant Inflatable Sausage Race and Chicken Run Relay, what’s not to love?!

Indoor Corporate Summer Party Ideas

Even though Summer makes us all think of being outdoors in the sun, sometimes Team Building Events and Corporate Parties can be even better indoors! After all, we do live in England where weather can never be guaranteed. Better safe than sorry!

Did you know that one of the best things about Indoor Activities is they can strengthen working relationships by bringing a more positive energy to the room? What’s not to love about that?

Here are some of our favourite indoor team building ideas for the summer months.

1. The Office Games: Interactive Gameshow

If you love a bit of Saturday Night TV, why not bring it to life with The Office Games? Go head-to-head in teams in games based on the game shows we all know and love! Your host will bring the buzz of a real game show to life as your team competes to become The Office Games Champions!


The Office Games will have your team laughing right until the end, keeping up that all important Team Building aspect! Why not add this event to your list for your next Corporate Summer Party?

2. Betrayers

Take on this immersive team building event filled with mystery and intrigue as your work to identify the Betrayers among you. Inspired by the popular TV show Traitors, this event is full of puzzles and challenges which will test your problem solving skills and how you work as a team.

With atmospheric lighting and props, teams will be immersed in the Betrayers from the start. Round table discussions will give participants an opportunity to find out more about their teammates and voting rounds will lead to banishments! Will you be a Betrayer or a Faithful?

3. Pressure Zone

Are you willing to take on the challenge of Pressure Zone? In this event, teams will take on nerve wracking time challenges in a Pressure Zone arena designed to test a range of team building skills.

Games may seem simple at first but once you get inside the arena, participants will need to have nerves of steel as they go under pressure against the clock. Individuals will have the opportunity to showcase different skill sets in each challenge.

Pressure Zone is a popular indoor team building idea for those looking for a tense but fun atmosphere!

4. Pub Olympics

If you’re looking for something competitive but not too active, then Pub Olympics is the perfect Team Event! With classic pub games, there’s something for everyone, from Pub Skittles to Table Football and Darts. It is a party after all!

This event can be run as a competitive event in a round-robin style tournament or as a freestyle event. You can truly make this event your own!

5. CSI Experience

If you consider yourself a True Crime expert, put your detective skills to the test with the CSI Experience! Teams must work closely together to inspect clues, investigate leads and ultimately, solve a murder! However, you must be careful not to make any rash decisions!

Once all forensic zones have been inspected, teams will need to present their findings and conclusions. Will they be right? Or would they be helping send an innocent person to prison?

So there you have it! Our Work Summer Party Ideas, with something to fit everyone’s needs! There are benefits to each type of event, whether this is an Indoor Event or an Outdoor Activity, meaning you can’t really go wrong!
