Hosting a Great Retreat

If your trip or event is longer than a week, or involved participants flying in from all over, considering adding a day or two before and after the trip as time to prepare and/or debrief your team.  We believe strongly in both good preparation and the power of team retreats and while these vary in many forms, the long term impact is incredible.  As you’re building a retreat we would just like to spur some thought into what you may plan for these events.



Retreats are great ways to step aside from a busy life, gather your team in one place, and focus on the future event.  You may never find a better opportunity to prepare your team before leaving.

Retreat Content Examples

  • How to Debrief on the Event
  • Expectations & Responsibilities
  • Communications with Home
  • Money Management
  • Sharing Stories
  • Personal Development & Journaling
  • Thanking Donors
  • Nuts & Bolts



Activities are built to enforce the community and enhance the experience of all the participants.  We’ve seen retreats bring complete strangers together as teammates in a matter of days.

Retreat Activity Examples

  • Hiking
  • Rafting / Canoeing
  • Cooking Meals
  • Scavenger Hunt
  • Ropes Course
