Company meetings and industry conferences are a wealth of information and a great time to connect with colleagues. But why not add something special to your meeting or convention with an inventive and memorable off-site team building activity? In Reno Tahoe, there is an abundance of options that your attendees will enjoy and remember for years to come – from outdoor challenges to unique problem-solving adventures, and even discovering the value of play in improving teamwork and communication. Add something unique to your next meeting agenda with one of these creative programs.
Help your team discover their true potential with Project Discovery’s fun and challenging Ropes Challenge Course, located at Sky Tavern Park on the Mount Rose Highway. The progressive program caters to all levels and abilities, from simple ground elements to their 550’ dual zipline. They also offer “portable programs” that can be tailored to meet your group’s needs and brought to your location.
Solving clues to escape your themed room is the premise behind The Puzzle Room in downtown Reno. No, this isn’t a scary experience but it is challenging… and a lot of fun! Each room – Below Ground, Valley of Kings, The Asylum and Lost Cabin – is designed to take you into another mysterious time and place. Groups are given a mission and hints to help you attempt your escape. This is a great way for teams to build skills to work together to solve problems, all while having a uniquely memorable experience.
If the thought of another typical ‘team building’ or ‘development training’ class makes you yawn, The Utility Players are here to change that mindset. This improv group offers various 90-minute workshops to facilitate better communication and stimulate group chemistry in a truly creative way. Overcome the fear of public speaking in “Conquering Stage Fright,” or simply improve the communication among team members with “The Art of Play.” They can also customize a workshop perfect for your team.
Breakthrough Training offers dynamic team building programs to improve communication, discover team members’ strengths, and build trust within your group. Several seminars for private groups are available, from goal setting and time management to general team building workshops. Many of the programs are offered with half-day, full-day or multi-day options to best fit your schedule.
The Go Game combines technology, exploration and creativity to provide a unique and fun team building experience. Teams take part in cell phone-based scavenger hunts and can kick off at the venue of your choice. Puzzles and clues are planted within a four to six block area, including actors who are planted to be a part of the action. Teams solve tasks by making short videos, taking photos, re-enacting iconic movie scenes, and more. If an interactive, outside-the-box experience is what you’re looking for, this might be the perfect activity for your group.
