We offer different meeting spaces for your group. All these buildings have restrooms, and we can provide snacks and drinks to help your group stay focused.

Food Service

Don’t just think of us as a meeting room, we also offer snacks and drinks. Or for those full day meetings, we can offer a food service that can exceed your expectations. Try our Pasta Bar with garlic bread, or maybe you would be more interested in Turkey Wraps and soup for a lighter lunch. Whatever you need, we can supply it and present it in a way that will impress!

Breakout Sessions

We also offer other programs to help break up the day for your group. Whether you feel like activities to strengthen your team or high adventure on our 55 foot Alpine Tower, we can offer a program that can compliment your meeting.

  • Meeting Breakout – this is a quick energizer activity that our staff would lead.
  • Initiatives – we can do some ground activities that help reinforce the ideas of Teamwork. We can offer these activities in any space around, so we do not take time away from your important meeting.
  • Low Ropes – these activities are set over 10-acres of wooded space. The tools we can introduce can be effective in strengthening a team atmosphere.
  • High Ropes – this structure stands 25 feet tall and is set so we can have a few people in the air at one time. All safety equipment is inspected daily and provided.
  • Alpine Tower – a structure that is visually impressive at 55 feet tall. We can have up to 24 people engaged at one time to cut the amount of down time for your group. We can also work with your group on belaying each other for that ultimate trust building component.
