Many planners are choosing to host smaller, more experiential events that build great work relationships through memorable activities. Patric Douglas, CEO of Bend’s Big Mountain Helicopter Tours, noted this trend in a Luxury Retreats Magazine article, “The trend is towards smaller, bigger bang-for-your-buck retreats where the team can get to the nut of any problems they have and chart a course while having a unique experience.”

3. Celebrate your successes and build team spirit with a Bend, Oregon adventure.
A corporate retreat should include an adventure or two that really brings the group together. There are so many unique corporate retreat activities in Bend, Oregon that are perfect for team building.
Take a helicopter ride above the Cascade Mountains.
Or organize a mountain biking excursion on one of the many world-class mountain biking trails in the area.
A favorite among groups is a dinner canoe tour on one of the beautiful Cascade Lakes. A little sunshine, exercise and physical challenge is exactly what your group needs to boost confidence and encourage growth in their working relationships. Venturing into the gorgeous Bend, Oregon playground makes it all the more enjoyable.
4. Encourage mindfulness during a group yoga and meditation exercise.
In many workplaces, time, money and productivity are wasted due to overwhelmed and tired teams. A practice in mindfulness will teach your team members how to better handle stress and bring clarity to their work day.

Here’s an idea everyone will love: A Guac-Off. Your team will separate into small groups and be given the basic ingredients for guacamole. Now it’s their job to make the best recipe! Our culinary team will provide all of the tools and ingredients they need to make the best guacamole on the planet. Margaritas, anyone?
