It can be hard to imagine an outdoor retreat when temperatures are below freezing. Even though it doesn’t feel like it, spring is right around the corner, and it is the perfect season for a company retreat. Taking your employees to the great outdoors in warmer weather can be just what your team needs to bring them closer together. The more time you give yourself to plan, the more successful your retreat will be. Start planning your spring retreat now for a company outing your employees will be talking about for years to come.
Having an outdoor company retreat can energize and revitalize your team. Here are a few reasons spring is the best time for your retreat.
In spring, you don’t have to worry about your employees shivering during your activities or sweating during a brainstorming session. The outdoor breeze is chilly enough to be refreshing, and your team can enjoy the outdoors comfortably.
Natural waterfronts like lakes are hosts to a wealth of wildlife and potential team-building activities. While the water might be too chilly for swimming in early spring, there are still plenty of ways your team can take advantage of a scenic lake, including:
- Pedal boating
- Lakeside picnics
These activities and more can keep your retreat fresh and exciting for new and seasoned employees alike.
While summer is also a great time to host an outdoor corporate retreat, your employees may have more potential conflicts. Your teammates with children may have family outings planned while their kids are off school. Spring break is easier to plan around since it lasts for one week instead of several months. Save your employees from choosing between family time and work by hosting a spring retreat.
Take advantage of the temperate weather to get your team moving. Team sports and other outdoor activities can help bring your whole team closer together. Here are a few activities you can plan during your next retreat:
- Mini golf
- Beach volleyball
- Bocce Ball
Activities like these will generate excitement and competition critical to an enjoyable retreat. Getting active will get your team laughing and communicating more effectively than ever long after the retreat is over.
