Take your team on an outdoor adventure
For an adventurous and energetic team building activity, take your crew to Capture the Flag, Paintball and Airsoft. With 22 courses on 116 acres, you can challenge everyone at team building ideas from paintball and airsoft to axe throwing, nerf battles, disc golf, drone flying, archery tag, and target shooting.
Between games, relax on the outdoor patio with a hotdog or sausage, or bring your own food to enjoy in the rumpus room in front of the fire. Fun team building activities don’t have to end when the weather turns cold—layer up!
Craft your way to connection
Throw conventional team building experiences out the window with Saffron Collective Studios. Discover the excitement of trying a new skill and working with your hands at a private pottery class.
Your group can explore the benefits of creative outlets in a safe and fun environment that encourages self expression. Enjoy a few laughs as you learn the ins and outs of hand building and wheel throwing—getting messy can lead to great rewards!
Giddy-up on team coaching sessions
Uplevel your coaching sessions with Spiegelbild Coaching. Their equine-assisted coaching combines horses with traditional coaching methods to help your team discover their emotional and social IQs, as well as how to adapt, communicate, build trust, and more.
No horseback riding is involved, and no previous experience with horses is required. Learning to work with equines is an intuitive and non-judgemental experience that can lead to eye-opening breakthroughs in human to human interactions. You won’t want to miss this!
Relax together, post-adventure
After a big day of team building, your team will love The Cave Sauna Day Spa. Unwind with relaxing treatments that target stress, like relaxation, hot stone, or deep tissue massage, or let the tension melt away in one of the unique climates of the many saunas or steam rooms.
Satiate your group’s appetites with a visit to Half Hitch Brewing Co. for a stick-to-your-ribs burger and a brew before you call it a night at The Crossing at Ghost River. Situated on 145 acres, the retreat center is the ideal place for a customized gathering. After a good night’s sleep in their charming and comfortable bedrooms, head out for outdoor team building ideas along the wonderfully scenic river.
