Want to whisk your team away on an unforgettable corporate getaway? Corporate retreats provide the perfect opportunity to encourage teamwork, boost morale, and reinspire your staff members. From archery and art workshops to canoeing and cocktail making masterclasses, there are so many corporate getaway activities to choose from – here are some of our favourites…

Go Clay Pigeon Shooting 

If you’re searching for a classic corporate event in the great outdoors, clay pigeon shooting could be the ideal activity for you and your team. Clay pigeon shooting encourages cooperation amongst employees and allows them to blow off steam, all whilst soaking up the many health benefits associated with the great outdoors. And, most importantly, clay pigeon shooting doesn’t involve any exceptional sporting abilities, meaning almost anybody can participate.

Get Lost in the Great Outdoors 

Embarking on a team hike is a fantastic corporate getaway activity, allowing you to connect with fellow staff members and mother nature. Walking has numerous physical and mental health benefits, as you work together to reach a common destination. A great metaphor for a collaborative team! If you wanted to create a more serene, digital detox-esque experience, you could encourage colleagues to switch off their phones and use OS maps and compasses instead.Henry Bonas has access to some of the most luxurious countryside venues boasting a plethora of wonderful walking routes straight from the door, including Blenheim Palace, Sezincote House, and many more.

Master the Art of Mixology

Searching for a team building activity that is a bit more laid-back and fun? Cue cocktail making! Staff members can spend time socialising with one another in a relaxed setting, whilst creating their own classic cocktails to enjoy.  Cocktail making classes usually involve demonstrations from expert mixologists, before breaking off into teams to create their own unique concoctions. It’s a great way to learn new skills, work together, and most importantly, have fun. We have helped organise cocktail masterclasses at some of the most lavish venues around, including London’s Century Club and the NoMad Hotel.

Cook with a Celebrity Chef

Food is a great way to bring people together. So, why not unleash your team’s inner culinary talents with an interactive cookery class? Team members can work together to create mouth-watering meals, in turn promoting creativity, collaboration and communication.

There’s a whole host of fun cookery classes out there that master global cuisines – from traditional Italian dishes to modern French creations, and everything in between. Henry Bonas can help organise the finest cookery classes led by celebrated chefs. Think Gino D’Acampo and Michel Roux Jr!

Treat Your Team to a Wellbeing Workshop

Your team works hard, day in and day out. Why not reward them for their efforts by organising a relaxing wellness workshop? Wellbeing workshops benefit not only the individuals but also the business as a whole, enabling employees to re-energise and become more zen inside and outside the workplace.

Henry Bonas can arrange a wide array of wellness activities that focus on relaxation and stress relief, including yoga sessions, meditation and mindfulness practices.
