Enhance your meeting for all of your attendees with some creative team building. Choose from many exciting options while your team works together through unique and fun activities.
Creative Team Building for Meetings and Retreats
Work side-by-side with team members in a timed session to create meals with fresh ingredients. Our chefs will stock you with the freshest ingredients from produce to fresh fish and the rest is up to you. Teams compete to complete and create the most delicious dish. Attendees love this exercise and is a great way to break up your day.
Charter a Boat
Step out to the marina docks and onto one of our local charters for a fishing excursion. Attendees will have an opportunity to get out on a boat and try fishing New England style. Boxed lunches can be provided so you can make an afternoon of your excursion. This is a great way to set up friendly competitions and prizes and will create memories that will last back at the office.
Hike a Trail
Old Saybrook boasts many beautifully preserved trails that would offer a great way for attendees to be out in nature, take advantage of a scavenger hunt and create partnerships with colleagues. Our meeting professional can assist with maps and specifics on how you can hike your way to success.
Our nearby partnership with the Old Lyme Country Club allows us to provide meeting attendees with golf tournaments, nine or eighteen holes and luncheons or receptions. A foursome is a great way to enhance your team building efforts.
Obstacle Course in the Park
Energize your attendees by getting them out of the meeting room and into nature. Provide a space with variety of options including running, jumping, tire rolls and mini golf located in the park across from the main inn. The fresh salt air will rejuvenate and help your attendees feel inspired and invigorated by some good old fashion competition.
Explore the CT River Museum
Our partnership with the CT River Museum located in the nearby town of Essex means you can take a break and have a change of scenery. Located on the CT River with spectacular views the museum has space for receptions, outdoor events and offers kayaking and SUP boarding or sunset cruises.
