In the new age of working from home, team bonding is more important than ever. The North Shore Adventure Park's high ropes course and ziplines provides an outdoor, socially distanced way to connect with your employees and coworkers — in person!
After a year of social isolation, bonding with teammates and coworkers is essential in making organizations feel connected again.
Team Building vs Team Bonding
Many organizations have participated in team building activities. These are organized activities that focus on completing a specific task or challenge as a team. They usually have a facilitator leading the entire group.
The North Shore Adventure Park offers a wonderful opportunity for team bonding!
Nothing brings people together like collectively stepping out of their comfort zone and trying something new. The Adventure Park provides just that — in
a way that is safe and fun for everyone.
How does it work? Participants explore the ropes courses and ziplines at their own pace and go only as far as they feel comfortable. Because it is all about celebrating individual accomplishments, there is no pressure to complete the task as a team, or to feel embarrassed if they are not at the same level as their coworkers.
Hire an Adventure Park Guide
For even more team bonding potential, we suggest hiring an Adventure Park Guide. The guides can lead small groups of people who have similar levels of ability and confidence.
Our guides provide instruction and encouragement to help climbers step outside their comfort zone and work their way through the aerial obstacles. This small group dynamic enhances the experience of feeling connected with co-workers in a supportive environment.
Check guiding services when you send us a Group Request. Services are subject to staff availability and are offered at an additional cost.
Wi-Fi and other amenities
Need to check in at work? No problem. Free Wi-Fi is available at the park, since technically, you are working! Several picnic table areas are located under the ropes courses which can be used for work space.
Catering and food options are available through local vendors. We also have water and sanitizer throughout the park.
The North Shore Adventure Park is located 1 hour north of Duluth, in Silver Bay, MN. Our forested adventure park is built in the trees, across the road from Lake Superior.
Enjoy the park-like setting, the creek that runs through, and the view of Lake Superior. We are near many attractions like State Parks, Black Beach, Palisade Head, Split Rock Lighthouse, and more. See more attractions in Silver Bay, MN.
During Covid, we require all staff and guests to wear masks while they are on the ground or within 6 feet of others. We sterilize all gloves after each use and offer new gloves for purchase. We limit the number of people on the course at any one time.
