Outdoor Inspirations Teambuilding

Bring out the best in your team with a day spent engaging with each other in one of the best natural settings Southeast Michigan has to offer. Half and full day events both include hiking, naturalist information, delicious organic foods, and team building games. The benefits of team building are many; spending a day in the sunshine could be a wonderful investment for your most important asset.


We offer two basic team building packages, which can both be customized to fit your group's needs. Planning an event with your team at our location is a great way to get the benefits of nature and facilitate cohesion. Bald Mountain in Oakland County (40 minutes north of Detroit) is a great place for a half-day activity, although overnight options are available for teams that want a longer retreat.

Strengthen Your Team

Teambuilding is a well established way for a company to invest in its most important resource: the employees. Spending time together in the natural world, taking on challenges, and participating in a shared experience is an effective way to encourage bonding, address weaknesses, and develop strengths. The carefully chosen activities will help reduce discord among members and boost morale in even the highest performing groups.

  • Improves productivity

  • Increases motivation

  • Renews collaboration

  • Breaks down barriers in communication

  • Builds trust in the group

  • Identifies strengths 

  • Promotes creative problem solving

  • Reinforces company values

The Power of Nature

  • Lowered blood pressure and stress hormone levels

  • Improved immune system function

  • Reduced anxiety

  • Enhanced self-esteem

  • Increased contentment and clear thinking

  • Elevated mood

  • Improved emotional regulation

  • Strengthened memory

Inspire your team’s renewed collaboration with a teambuilding event. In today’s city-centered lifestyle, many people don’t get to experience the simple joy of unwinding while immersed in greenspace. Spending time out in nature is an accessible way to boost your team to the next level. Stress reduction is a well known benefit of being in nature, but being out of doors for as little as two hours can bring on numerous other physical and cognitive benefits:


Every event includes hiking, which gives participants the opportunity to slow down and focus on the amazing things that nature created.

Classic Teambuilding

Outdoor Inspirations Teambuilding events can be customized to meet your team's needs. Typical events are a half day, but overnight adventures are also available. The main ingredients for a great event? A beautiful location for hiking, carefully chosen games and activities, and delicious local food!

Mindfulness Teambuilding

For some company cultures, our Mindfulness Team Building events will be better suited. Promoting employee mindfulness helps reduce stress, which is a major cause of disengagement and distraction. 

Activities at these events are designed to promote awareness of the present, and include both hiking and a guided meditation. Yoga and organic meals are also available.

Your team will be sure to come away ready to tackle the next day's challenges!
