Anyone have any ideas for a team retreat? We're gonna be at Cultus Lake for a couple days in the summer and I'm having trouble thinking of events and fun activities that'll help the team bond and have fun at the same time.. There's about 15 of us


So far, I've only got Pitching Tents as a team and the Human Knot as well as kayaking and playing minigolf..

Just to have fun and get to know each other so we grow as a team instead of us just meeting every week and not developing a closer bond..


I dunno I'm just brainstorming so I have no idea if I want to do any of those yet.

I'm trying to figure out if this is serious or if "team pitching tents and then human knots" is some sort of hilarious sexual reference.

Don't even waste money on a stripper.
Just propose the circlejerk, as a joke to start... but see who might be down.

Makes the circlejerk even better.

But seriously, maybe some team sports games? If you're on a tight budget, capture the flag or ultimate is cheap. If you have access to nets of some sort, then handball is fun. Team bonding shouldn't be all physical activity though.

What is the age group?

We used to play a game called 'Toast' in junior which was LOADS of fun.
This was always a hit at our family reunions..you could do Wizard Sticks, every man for himself, you tape all your empties together to create a glorious Wizard Staff, the first person's Wizard Staff to topple over, loses.

I think they do.. But I'm just trying to find low budget activities.. I mean the cost itself is already pricey enough for 20 of us

Well, since it is coed and all, I was thinking maybe a game like charades. Before the game starts, have everybody write down their favorite movie or song,etc. and place these in a hat.(I'm sure SOMEBODY will be wearing a Canucks hat). Then randomly pick someone from each group to draw from hat and act it out. The team with the most correct answers wins and gets first dibs on the roasted hotdogs..... Or something.


OR just play beer pong.
