There’s never an offseason for team-building, especially in today’s corporate world. Employees come and go seemingly in the blink of an eye, placing a ton of pressure on the CEO, director, or manager to speedily sew up the wound. Oftentimes, a team outing is the perfect way to help the team gel, particularly when there’s a sizable amount of fresh faces in the office. It’s nearly impossible to forge lasting working relationships by partaking in quick, five-minute team-building activities on the office lawn. Competitive, Olympic-style games often promote rivalry rather than teamwork. Here at Garnet Hill Lodge, however, we take a different approach by embracing nature’s many pathways toward unison.
Very few Adirondack Mountain resorts have a dedicated conference, retreat, and meeting staff on-site. Garnet Hill Lodge was built in the lasting tradition of 19th-century Adirondack Great Camps, so we know a thing or two about hosting large groups who share common goals. All outdoor team-building activities can be arranged swiftly and painlessly by our staff. And most corporate team-building runs through our on-site Outdoor Center, a centralized, four-season activity hub. We can, of course, also arrange an off-site adventure if need be. Hopefully, the following 10 team outing ideas provide a proper glimpse of a potential adventure-based retreat to North River, NY.
We recommend browsing through our meeting venues page to learn more about specialty packages, rooms, and accommodations. Garnet Hill Lodge’s indoor and outdoor space can be utilized and ultimately customized in countless ways. The importance of team-building cannot be understated—we take these quarterly or bi-annual events with a great deal of care. For even more potential outdoor team-building activities, please contact our retreat team at 518-251-2444 (or fill out this form). North River, NY, is less than four hours from Manhattan and just a short drive from Albany, Syracuse, and Utica, so we’re closer than you think!
