collaborative recreation events & workshops
Corporate off-sites are one of the best ways to bring teams closer together. Over the past twenty years, participation in corporate team building activities has grown exponentially, with groups signing up for everything from trust falls to zipline tours. As these specialized group activities become more and more popular, one of the pits into which meeting planners frequently fall is the "one-size-fits-all" approach to team building.
Here at the Ranch, our basic philosophy for team building activities can be summed up in one central principle: that every activity should be as unique as the folks participating in it. This is why we created Brasada CREW. We take the time get to know your group and your specific, individual needs. Together, we craft memorable, meaningful experiences that advance your team to the next level, both interpersonally and professionally. Successful events encompass a balance of cooperation, problem solving, playfulness, mental and physical challenge, and laughter.
With Brasada CREW there are no tedious, embarrassing seminars that participants dread and managers regret. We shatter the status quo and create meaningful experiences that are not only fun but also transformative. We host just one group at a time so we can truly focus our efforts on the quality of each program, providing exactly what your CREW needs.
6,000 Square Foot Mazes & More
The following are just a few of our most popular ideas, though as you’ve seen above, we are passionate about thinking well outside The Barn and coming up with new, innovated programs for each client. Please connect with us to discuss your goals and vision and allow us the opportunity to bring them to life.
S'mores and Stars
Our night sky is one of the darkest in the United States and provides us with unparalleled views of the moon, the planets and the Milky Way galaxy.
We can provide your group with a personalized astronomy tour of the beautiful night skies at Brasada Ranch using two high-powered telescopes staffed by our team of astronomers. Our staff will share fascinating scientific knowledge as well as stories from Greek and Native American mythologies related to the various constellations and planets. And of course, since it may be chilly outside we'll get the campfires going and provide your team with Brasada Ranch’s signature home-made s'mores. Truly an unforgettable, unique experience.
Falcons, Finches and Flickers
Our resident bird expert has a treasure trove of information about our native avian species and all things ornithological are sure to captivate your entire group. Bring sturdy walking shoes, water and binoculars and enjoy the birds of Brasada. Duration: 60-90 minutes.
Volcanoes, History and the High Desert Naturalist Adventures
Brasada Ranch is nestled against the flanks of an ancient basaltic outcropping. Every inch of the landscape holds a story just waiting to be told. Let us share all the fascinating and fun details about the plants, animals and people who have made this rugged landscape their home over the centuries. Duration: 90-120 minutes.
Team Sports and Facilitated Lawn Games
Let your inner child out as we bring back the old classics. An afternoon of old favorites, including Stickball, Dodgeball and Kick the Can are sure to lighten your group's mood and get everyone into the team spirit.
Our crew of recreation experts excels at creating and facilitating highly-customized, fun activities that can help your team grow to perform at a higher level, work more efficiently and communicate more effectively.
Team Challenge Course
The Course is administered based on the guiding principles of "Challenge By Choice," in which participants are never required to take part in any activities that are beyond their skill sets or ability levels. Notwithstanding, the Course is quite challenging and has been highly successful in encouraging individuals to step outside their comfort zones and experience inter- and intrapersonal growth. Best of all, the level of challenge can be tailored specifically to the goals/needs of the group to create a holistic team building experience that is both audience-appropriate and massively entertaining.
