Say goodbye to boring corporate retreats of the past and let’s plan something exciting!
Here are 10 unique retreat activities that your attendees will rave about!
10 UNIQUE RETREAT ACTIVITY IDEAS
ONE | MINI GOLF
This is a perfect way to have healthy competition while also having food, drinks, and plenty of fun!
TWO | GET OUTDOORS
Going to destinations with iconic hikes such as Zion National Park or Grand Teton National Park is a great way for attendees to get to know each other as they walk. It also gives them a chance to support each other!
If travel isn’t on the table choose a local gem!
THREE | DINNER AND A SHOW
The theater, comedy, or a local production are great ways to bring people together as well as support your community!
FOUR | ROPES COURSE OR CANYONEERING
This is great for team building because these activities require the team to work together which is exactly the bond you want to create inside and outside of the workplace!
FIVE | SCAVENGER HUNT
This activity is perfect for getting people out in the community and working together. Throw in a little competition and it’s even more fun.
SIX | GROUP CLASS
Doing a group class like cooking, mixology, or dance is an amazing way to have fun while also learning something new!
SEVEN | TEAM SPORT OR GAME
Any team sport will do! Football, bubble soccer, capture the flag! No matter what it is, it will be a great team building and a good de-stressor!
EIGHT | THEMED PARTY
Encourage everyone to dress up and play a character. Think 80’s rollerskating, murder mystery, or blacklight. It’s so fun and definitely memorable!
NINE | EXPLORE A NEW CITY
Rent bikes or find a great walkable city to explore and immerse yourself in the local culture!
TEN | BOARD GAME TOURNAMENT
Great for a single activity or can be sprinkled throughout a larger retreat! Another good way for friendly competition.
CONSIDER THESE THINGS WHEN PLANNING A UNIQUE CORPORATE RETREAT
If any of these activities have sparked your interest, here are some things you should consider before booking any of them!
WHAT IS YOUR BUDGET?
HOW LONG DO YOU WANT IT TO BE?
WHAT AGE/DEMOGRAPHIC ARE YOUR EMPLOYEES?
Make sure you curate the event for your employees so that they can participate as well as grow!
After thinking about those specific questions, ask yourself and others who are planning, what is the goal of this retreat. What is the “WHY” behind this event and how are you going to convey that why?
Remember that the ultimate goal of any retreat is to help people unwind and de-stress, build bonds between team members, help people feel valued, and increase productivity at work, so again keep these all in mind!
