MVP: Most Valuable Planner of Your Wisconsin Team Challenge

Planning an effective and inspiring Wisconsin team building event isn’t as easy as waving pompoms at a high school football game. As the planner, you are tasked with the challenge of not only figuring out what will inspire, build trust, and encourage your group to work together, but also choosing the perfect place that reflects your corporate culture … and meets your budget. Let meetingpages help with these 5 ideas that can effectively fire up the troops and ignite just this.

A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats

From scavenger hunts to boating tours to theme nights like Casino Cruises, sailing away on a private cruise can do wonders for building comradery and boosting morale amongst your team.

For more than fifty years, Milwaukee Boat Line has been sailing the waters of the Milwaukee River, Harbor, and Lake Michigan. Three double-decker excursion vessels offer a full-service bar, professionally integrated sounds systems, and stunning views of Milwaukee’s skyline. Gourmet catering, tempting libations, live music, and narrated tours create a one-of-a-kind experience.  

Lake Geneva Cruise Line embarks from the docks of beautiful Lake Geneva with a stunning fleet of eight boats. Board your bunch on a luxurious chartered yacht or a classic paddle wheeler for an often historic, always unique experience. Offering team building challenges like The Geneva Geo Challenge or the Black Point Estate Tour, the climate-controlled cabins and spacious decks ensure comfort no matter what the weather. A wide variety of mouthwatering catering and beverage options make for smooth sailing every time.

For the past century, Dells Boat Tours have welcomed guests to experience the natural beauty of the Wisconsin Dells.  Your guests will enjoy the amazing sights of towering cliffs and dramatic rock formations with two exclusive shore landings at Witches Gulch and Stand Rock.  The Sunset Dinner Cruise offers beautiful scenery, delicious food, live entertainment, and a shore landing that features a torchlit stroll through Witches Gulch, making this an outing they won’t soon forget.

Increase Your Teams Drive

If a tour isn’t at the top of your list, you could get the team in gear at Elkart Lake’s Road America. The adrenaline pumping experience allows your team to become real race car drivers for a day. This isn’t an arcade game and it’s certainly not the highway at rush hour, but the real thing, customized to meet your goals. Nearby hotels, camping areas, and dining establishments make it easy for your group to play all day, then stay afterwards.

Prefer to boost morale on the “greens”? Then let the games begin — tee up a best ball scramble golf tournament at Wisconsin’s premiere golf course SentryWorld, located in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Then, stay the night at the recently opened Inn at SentryWorld, a charming boutique hotel off the 18th fairway. The new hotel also features gathering spaces ideal for a corporate retreat. Or ace the course in mini golf at Vitense Golfland, centrally located in Madison, Wisconsin. This unique venue features golf, footgolf, suites and simulators. All skill levels are welcome in these fun adventures outside the office.

Happy Hunting

Private hunting can make for exciting competition between co-workers, while rustic lodging offers the perfect retreat. Combined with great food, comfortable accommodations, and a charming atmosphere, your team will long remember this type of outing.

Milford Hills Hunt Club offers your group hunts for pheasant, chukar, quail, and more on nearly 500 acres of unparalleled upland hunting land. A five-star shooting facility, guests can also shoot rifles, pistols, sporting clays, and five-stand all at the same facility. The charming lodge features four bedrooms and three bathrooms and can comfortably sleep eight. Enjoy chef-prepared meals, cook your own in the cabin’s fully stocked kitchen, or enjoy fine dining in the Clubhouse.

Nothing Builds Trust Like a Challenge

Trust, leadership, and confidence emerge when your team navigates their way along the rock climbing walls at Climb Iowa. Participants stimulate mind and muscle as they work together to conquer the wall, all the while focusing on communications, problem solving, and trust.   

Summer camp was never like this. Send your team to new heights with the ropes course at Teambuilding Blocks, LLC @ Four Mounds Inn, Conference Center and Ropes Course. The onsite Grey Mansion is available for post climbing wrap up, too.

A Homerun Hit Every Time

Nothing says, “we appreciate you” like a day spent at the ball game. Hot dogs, peanuts, and ice-cold drinks just naturally go great with the boys of summer hitting one out of the park at Miller Park. Take your team to the ballgame at Milwaukee Brewers, an American professional baseball team based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They compete in Major League Baseball as a member club of the National League Central division. Book a tour for your team and visit the dugout, luxury suite level, clubhouse press box, Bob Uecker’s broadcast booth, batting cages, and other behind-the-scenes attractions. Or get a great group rate and watch the Brewers play, take part in special promotions like free-shirt Friday, or grab some grub at concessions offering everything from burgers, to nachos, to pizza, and more.
