Whether team building, strategic planning, or training, off-site events are critical to building culture and creating a cohesive team. You can rent a sterile hotel conference space or you can bring together your team in a truly retreat-like setting where barriers come down and true creativity and collaboration can occur.
We also welcome outside facilitators and teachers for your own events. We are happy to post your event on our website with a link to your website to provide additional promotion.
As more and more teams move to virtual work environments, regular time to bring the team together has become essential. Even if the team works together in an office, a fresh location and fresh air will bring fresh perspectives.
Ravens Crest, located in Newburg, MD, feels like a house but has amenities like a projector screen hidden in the ceiling of the hand-hewn beams, comfy leather sofas and a white board. There are multiple areas for break out sessions including two separate living rooms, a training space in the original parlor and three porches with multiple seating areas. There is space to gather as one group for meals – either in the dining room overlooking the Potomac or on the back porch that also overlooks the river. The kitchen with commercial oven and extensive refrigeration make it easy to easy to feed your team — whether they cook together or you hire a caterer. Space for some overnight guests can also be provided (see below).
You can choose to bring your own agenda, food and speakers or we can provide speakers and suggested caterers.
For those wanting overnight accommodations, Ravens Crest offers 4 bedrooms plus a secondary living room upstairs in the midst of the bedrooms. We are fifteen minutes from additional lodging and restaurants and less than a mile to waterfront restaurants.
