Immerse your team in a class, or paint a customized mural of artwork for your company with The Art of Teamwork.

Treat your colleagues by planning a memorable team-bonding experience at Nemacolin. Together, you can enjoy an array of outdoor activities at The Peak, Rod & Range Club, and golf courses in the warmer months, or engage in some playful competition with Cosmic Bowling or Indoor Axe Throwing come winter. Between all the fun and games, spacious meeting rooms, presentation venues, and business support services allow you to focus on your work. Everything you need to balance leisure and work on your corporate retreat in the Northeast is here.


Experience the Outdoors With Your Team

Nemacolin’s expansive grounds offer endless opportunities to bring your team together outside, be it by the water or on land, making it the perfect warm-weather corporate retreat location. Keep reading to discover the most popular group activities, or check out Nemacolin’s guide to Team-building Programs to explore them all.

Fly Fishing

The Orvis-endorsed Fly-Fishing Lodge at Nemacolin’s Rod & Range Club is home to some of the best fly-fishing streams in the Eastern United States. Whether your colleagues are beginners or experts, they’ll have a blast taking a catch-and-release fly-fishing trip and learning the ins and outs of the sport. Transportation and equipment are always complimentary — and if you schedule a full-day trip, lunch is included, too.

Sporting Clays

The Rod & Range Club also offers one of the country’s best sporting clay facilities for corporate retreats. Under the supervision of a guide, you and your colleagues can take part in the thrill of shooting clay targets that mimic the appearance of wild game birds. There’s an outdoor pavilion for instruction or meals, and there’s a rustic space inside for brainstorming, too.

Pete Dye-designed Golf Courses

Nemacolin’s award-winning golf courses were designed by renowned course designer Pete Dye. Set in Pennsylvania’s Allegheny Mountains, the championship-level Mystic Rock Golf Course features stunning views of the Laurel Highlands along with newly upgraded bunkers, playing surfaces, and tee boxes for you. Also in the mountains, the 7,290-yard Shepherd’s Rock Golf Course is designed to make each round challenging and fun for you and your colleagues.

Climbing Wall Height Challenge

Bring your group to new heights in the Climbing Wall Height Challenge. During this team-building activity, several markers will be placed at different heights on our climbing wall. Each participant then has the opportunity to attempt to reach a different height marker, creating exciting competition among the team.

Nemacolin Survivor Series

During the Nemacolin Survivor series, you and your team will be divided into two groups. Both groups pretend as though they’re stranded in the middle of nowhere with the option to choose only a handful of survival supplies. After selecting supplies, both teams receive a survival challenge. Only your selected items and the surrounding elements of nature can be used throughout the challenge. Your survival tactics will earn you points, and whichever team has the most points in the end wins!

The Great Chase

The Great Chase is a thrilling outdoor activity spanning more than 2,200 acres of Nemacolin’s lush grounds. Together with your team, you’ll navigate the property on foot to engage in up to five different activities, from the Centipede Shuffle obstacle course to the 50′ climbing wall challenge to the Tallest Tower building activity.


Indoor Activities

The excitement continues indoors, where you’ll find even more activities to try. From bowling to axe throwing and even wine-tasting and Italian Cooking Classes, there’s something everyone on your team will enjoy.

The Nemacolin Golf Academy

You and your team can golf year-round thanks to The Nemacolin Golf Academy, an indoor facility welcoming corporate retreat groups of up to 60. Here, you can host a corporate tournament for colleagues of all levels to compete or treat the team to a performance program that allows them to improve their skills.

Cosmic Bowling

Bowling is a great corporate retreat idea that boosts team morale, and it’s made even better by Nemacolin’s Cosmic Bowling alley. Defined by its neon decorative elements and black lighting, this one-of-a-kind spot has eight lanes so everyone in the group can play. Plus, it was recently upgraded so that even the gutters can add points to your game.

Indoor Axe Throwing

Located in The Peak, Nemacolin’s Indoor Axe Throwing range is also lit with black lights and neon decor, making the atmosphere as unique as the activity. With four axe-throwing lanes for four guests, there’s plenty of room for up to 16 of you to take turns aiming and throwing at the digitally-projected targets. Reserve all four lanes at once for a private team-building retreat experience, or combine it with Cosmic Bowling for a buyout blowout!

Wine Tasting

Head to the Lautrec Bistro for a Wine Tasting experience. Savor the taste of three different varieties of wine, each complemented by a delicious cheese. You’ll learn about each wine’s characteristics and origins all while chatting and getting to know your coworkers even better.

Italian Cooking Class

Ideal for groups of up to 14, the Italian Cooking Class is led by expert chefs from Nemacolin’s restaurants. Working together, you and your team follow a recipe to make your own pasta, then dine together while enjoying a glass of wine. Add this activity to any corporate retreat itinerary.

Giant Puzzle

The Giant Puzzle puts your team’s communication skills to the test. In this team-bonding game, two participants will be blindfolded. The two blindfolded participants must listen carefully to the rest of the group’s instructions in order to successfully put together a life-size puzzle.

The Art of Teamwork

During this activity, each member of your team will receive a canvas with pre-drawn outlines. You’ll each paint your own colorful print according to the outlines which, when combined, will form a stunning mural. The finished work can be displayed in your workplace to remind you of the power of collaborative work. Ahead of this activity, you can choose whether you’d like the final artwork to resemble a famous painting, your company name, or even your logo.

Minute to Win It

Named after and inspired by the NBC TV show Minute to Win It, this team-building activity challenges your team to a range of tabletop games that require collaboration, communication, and patience. You might have to flip a cup onto a glass bottle in the game Flip Your Lid, or arrange 36 cups into a pyramid before arranging them into a single stack during the Stacker activity — all in less than a minute.

Build a Boat

Split your group into teams and take part in one of Nemacolin’s most unique corporate retreat activities, Build A Boat. Each team receives a bag of supplies, including duct tape, cardboard, and garbage bags. Together, each team must build a boat and paddle a team member across the family pool. The team that succeeds first wins!

Build a Boat team building activity at Nemacolin
Put the problem-solving and creativity skills to work in Build a Boat. It's a unique challenge where your team works together to beat the clock and engineer a cardboard float sturdy enough to get someone across the pool. Level up the laughter with a not-so-private race in the Pools at The Peak!
Climbing Wall outdoors team building activity at Nemacolin
Whether it's the Climbing Wall, Quick Jump, or Ropes Courses, your team can discover how challenges and fears relate to the workplace and how teamwork provides motivational support. Then, debrief together to move ahead for increased collaboration and morale.
