An Experiential Professional Development Program
Camp Collaboration is a customizable three-day program designed to enhance professional development retreats with activities focused on communication, collaboration, and team building. Designed by our Director of Leadership Programming, Abby Oxborough, this is our exclusive in-house program that can be curated to fit teams of all sizes.
While receiving her Master of Science degree in Experiential Education, Abby focused her thesis on the value of teams getting outside of the office and into a distraction-free, inspiring, and creative environment. She brings her in-depth experience in experiential learning to create custom programs that are outcomes-based. From the planning to the execution of your retreat, she works closely with you to create activities and lessons that help teams communicate better, collaborate more naturally, and work together more efficiently.
Unify Your Team
Camp Collaboration is a full customizable program designed for teams looking to take a deep dive into streamlining collaboration in the office, practicing better communication, and stepping away from distracting environments to start thinking clearly. Come together to participate in transformative experiential learning activities conducive to building trust, self-efficacy, and creative thinking.
The Camp Collaboration Process
The first day is focused on connecting in a new space. Explore integrations of personal and professional values across your team and organization while setting the stage for challenging other team members throughout the weekend. This first day is all about assessing what’s working and what’s not working in your organization.
The second day begins with a reflection activity, focusing on group inclusion and role definitions afterward. Your group will take part in various experiential activities surrounding team building and trust, culminating in a big challenge course activity in the afternoon. Training will incorporate SMART goals, strategic planning implementation, and emotional intelligence tools while utilizing the tranquil surrounding environment that is Sugar Lake Lodge.
The final day is all about reflection and processing. What have we learned, experienced, and how will we bring it back to our everyday lives? How will the organization benefit from our experiences here? At this time, goals and timelines are set to reflect the positive outcomes uncovered during the Camp Collaboration program.
