Lost in Alligator Swamp

Lost in Alligator Swamp improves listening, team building, planning, decision making, and problem solving skills.

Lost in Alligator Swamp is an action packed training exercise that will help quickly develop essential team interaction skills like effective listening, information sharing, planning, problem solving and much more. The scenario is a search and rescue mission to find a group of boaters who are reported missing after a sudden tropical storm sweeps over a remote section of Manatee National Park where they had been fishing.

When the storm hit, the boaters used a cell phone to call the park ranger station and report that they had beached themselves on a small area of relatively dry land. But, they said that they were completely disoriented and had no idea of their exact location and their boat with provisions and camping gear was swept away, severely limiting their options.

The mission of exercise participants is to listen carefully to a tape recording made of the boaters, call for clues as to their possible location, identify the general area where they may be and work out a search and rescue action plan. Meanwhile, the boaters must use their wits and limited material resources to survive the dangers of Alligator Swamp!
