Just northeast of Bend, Oregon, Brasada Ranch boasts 12,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space, as well as an extensive menu of energetic team-building activities. Situated on nearly 2,000 acres of land, the opportunities to get outside and build bonds with co-workers are endless—from hiking, biking, golfing, and fishing to white water rafting on the Deschutes River and horseback riding.
Favorite customizable group experiences include options like miniature golf course challenges and a “Taste of the Pacific Northwest” experience where “guests will taste the whiskeys that are produced specifically in the Pacific Northwest, and they talk about [them] and rate [them],” explains Sara Miller, director of sales for Brasada. Another tried-and-true activity is the cardboard boat regatta challenge, she adds. “Teams are divided up, and they are provided with the materials to create a boat that somebody can actually sit in and paddle.” Groups build for an hour, present their creation for 30 minutes, and then compete to see whose watercraft stays afloat the longest.
