Day on the River
Sandy Springs is home to over 22 miles of the Chattahoochee River shoreline, and Nantahala Outdoor Center offers guided rafting, tubing, paddleboarding, and kayaking trips for over 100+ plus people at a time.
Don't get it twisted, rafting with six people in one boat requires more teamwork than you think. It requires all parties involved to work in tandem, which is much easier said than done. If one side isn't communicating with the other, you'll just be spinning in circles, stuck on a rock, and wishing you chose the tube instead! When all goes well, however, rafting can be one of the most rewarding experiences you can do!
Bury The Hatchet
Build trust and comradery by hurling axes at targets with your workmates at Bury The Hatchet. See which one of your coworkers would've been the top dog in Medieval times, when they put their accuracy to the test. Bury The Hatchet offers corporate events as well, so this is the perfect spot for your office! Maybe even put a promotion on the line for the best thrower, that would really spark some competition!
Steel Canyon Golf
It’s a bit of cliché, but golfing with your coworkers is one of the best ways to really get to know each other! Spending 3-4 hours, all with the common goal of keeping the golf ball in the fairway and trying to not shank 3-foot putts, is where you really bond on a deeper level.
Steel Canyon is the perfect course for both beginner and seasoned players! It’s a shorter course, which will make for a better experience for the new guys, while also being fun target practice for those PGA professionals every office has.
The Sipping Plant
Crafting a terrarium on its own is a super cool and unique activity these days, but adding in some adult beverages to the mix makes it that much more entertaining! The Sipping Plant offers guided classes to create your own masterpiece of succulent art. Put together a tropical rainforest-inspired piece, or maybe a quaint cacti biome. Either way, you'll walk away with some great desk decor.
Painting With a Twist
Grab yourself a glass of chardonnay and a paintbrush, and head over to Painting With a Twist for another creative adventure. This is a good option if you're looking for a more laid-back environment and activity, but who knows, if the drinks keep flowing you might have yourself a full-on party. And don't worry if you aren't a picasso-level artist, it's a guided painting experience and they teach you all you need to know.
Springs Cinema & Taphouse
The Springs Cinema & Taphouse is a bar/movie theater that you can rent out for your next company event! It could be to watch an important sporting event, to play video games, to watch your favorite movies, to do funny presentations, it’s all up to your imagination!
If your staff has been underperforming you could even use this as a punishment; rent out a room, put on the 2019 version of Cats, and lock the doors. That'll set them straight!
While Young Chefs specializes in children’s cooking classes, they also offer adult-only, team-building-specific classes! Scope out which one in the office bakes the best pie, and make sure to designate them as all-time Christmas party dessert maker!
