Best Team Building Activities: Mild & Wild
Stonewall Resort’s fun team-building exercises that fuel a little friendly competition, while also firing up the friendships
Segway or Kayak Relay Races
Groups divide into teams and then have the choice of competing in a race on two wheels throughout the trails of the wooded 1,900-acre property or with paddles on the 2,600-acre Stonewall Jackson Lake.
“Fired Up” Cooking Competition
Stonewall’s culinary team divides the group into teams, provides them with all the necessary cooking accoutrements (ingredients, grills, stovetops), then tasks each team with preparing a different course with a provided recipe. All participants leave with an apron emblazoned with the Stonewall Resort logo.
Local Community Service
For groups that are looking to bond while contributing to a larger cause in the community, the resort can organize charitable efforts. Options include a build-a-bike workshop (all bikes that are built are then donated to children in need), highway cleanup, as well as playground maintenance (painting, rebuilding obstacles, etc.)
Geocaching Scavenger Hunt
Groups are given the coordinates to locate points of interest throughout the resort, including the unusual groupings of waist-high rock walls on the property’s Cairns Trail, the scenic overlook on the Overlook Trail, and the preserved 180-year-old log cabin from Roanoke’s pioneer days.
Guided Night Hike
The resort’s on-staff naturalist takes groups on nature walks on the cart paths of the golf course at night, when the region’s flora and fauna really come alive.
