Team Building For Companies, School Groups, and other Organizations
Let Harpers Ferry Adventure Center help you plan your team building program
Organizations of all sizes find that the time they invest in offsite team building activities pays off very well both immediately and over the long term. Not only do our activities help build trust among colleagues, they also facilitate ongoing learning and have the lasting effect of increased productivity throughout the organization.
An Hour’s Trip from the Beltway
We’re located about an hour from the DC Beltway, making us the perfect off-site team activity location for organizations from Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
Our most popular activity is our High Ropes Course, as well as our Zip Line Tours. Some organizations also choose our whitewater rafting trips on the Potomac River as a teambuilding activity.
While participating in our activities, groups get to learn the importance of cooperation, teamwork, and active listening as they tackle the challenges together. Participants gain mutual respect for one another while strengthening team bonding and individual esteem. Debriefings and feedback afterward link the day’s activities with real-life situations, and facilitate learning even after the day is finished.
Our Challenge Course, also called a High Ropes Course, is the most popular team building program starting point. Organizations like to pair this activity with our zipline canopy tour, and for a fast paced activity, we suggest outdoor adventure activities such as our whitewater rafting adventures. For individuals who prefer less challenging activities, our ropes challenges include a low ropes course section.
Whether you are a corporate team striving for increased productivity or leadership development activities, a youth organization wanting to promote personal confidence, or a family who just wants to improve communication and trust, our team building program coordinator will design an effective & fun set of team development and team bonding activities program based on our ropes challenges, zip line, and our other great outdoor adventure activities.
We also host groups who prefer to put together their own, self-guided activity plan for team development . Groups can book any of our team building activities including whitewater rafting, zip lining, and our ropes course, and end the day communicating around a bonfire.
Contact us today to speak with a teambuilding specialist and let us do the strategic planning for you where we’ll customize a half day or full day of team building events for your group. Our proximity to the Washington DC and Baltimore metro region means we can even add travel to and from your office location. For those groups that prefer on-site teambuilding activities as an alternative to a corporate retreat style event, we also offer our events on site at your school, office, or church.
