Open to schools and organizations who are ready to bring together their students and employees for a day to create community, challenge critical thinking skills, and build friendships. Our team building course is set in the woods of our 27-acre nature preserve. We blend our mindfulness and meditation practices through experiential learning on the course in nature. It is a unique experience to stop and take breaths, becoming aware of our thoughts, feelings, and one another while challenging our communication habits. Pre-teens and teenagers in high school and college have a fun time trying to find solutions to the challenges. Faculty and Staff of schools explore power dynamics as well as how these communication skills translate to the classroom.
We are accepting reservations for Spring Team Building Retreats. The cost is $40/person. We can accommodate 20 – 65 students/retreat. Retreats are held Mon – Sat either 8-2, 8:30 – 2:30, 9-3, or 9:30 – 3:30, 10 – 4.
