Unique Team Building Activities for a Corporate Retreat

May 10, 2019

Corporations both large and small often plan corporate retreats to announce company news, to encourage team bonding and to focus on training initiatives. In most cases, team building is an important part of the retreat experience.

At Skytop Lodge, we are proud of the fact that we are a favorite corporate retreat destination for businesses around the country. Our unique amenities and luxurious accommodations make us an excellent choice for your next retreat. Consider incorporating these team building ideas into your next corporate retreat itinerary at Skytop Lodge:

Scavenger Hunt

A scavenger hunt is an interactive and engaging activity that promotes teamwork yet encourages healthy competition. It’s a particularly fun team building activity at Skytop Lodge because our expansive outdoor grounds are known for their natural beauty. If the corporate event planners arrive a few days early, they can work directly with lodge staff to plan their team building scavenger hunt.

Art Class

For many employees, the corporate retreat is an opportunity to escape the realities of daily deadlines, lengthy meetings, and frequent e-mail notifications. Allow your retreat participants to relax in the beauty of the Poconos while also encouraging them to mix and mingle with their coworkers. An art class can be coordinated on the lodge grounds. An instructor can give simple directions while the employees enjoy painting an outdoor scene and having a conversation with the people that they work with every day. It helps them get to know one another on a more personal level, which can increase camaraderie and morale in the workplace.


Ziplining is a form of outdoor adventure that is both exhilarating and challenging. Employees who are attending a corporate retreat will be excited about the idea of being active while they are away, and this activity can encourage your team to be more supportive of one another as each individual takes on the course. The TreeTop Course at Skytop Lodge is the perfect ziplining experience for your next corporate retreat.
