Team building experiences

 

One of the most effective ways to bring people together in meaningful ways, in a short amount of time, is through shared experiences and adventures. When you work with Global Sessions, you’re not only getting a personal, premium and seamless event (that’s a given). What really sets us apart are the inspiring, thought-provoking, fun and funny, wild, wacky and sometimes life-changing experiences we create.

 

  • Any group size, from 4-400+ people
  • Any location (Hood River is home base, but we’ll travel anywhere)
  • Purpose-driven activities instill teamwork, communication, trust, leadership, vulnerability, gratitude
  • Custom designed to deliver results specific to your needs
  • Can be a stand-alone event or as part of your retreat or offsite
Archery Tag

Archery Tag is an exciting game of strategy, teamwork and physical thrill, with the deeply satisfying bonus of being allowed to shoot your coworkers with foam-tipped arrows. The beauty of Archery Tag is that it completely levels the playing field- it’s a first for almost everyone, and you don’t have to be athletic to be a good shot.

Each group gets identical building supplies, tools and accessories, including a massive block of clay.

Breathwork is a physical and emotional deep-dive that has the potential to change lives in one 90-minute session.

It’s a highly-impactful experience only suited for the right group in the right mindset, but when the context is appropriate, breathwork is a powerful housecleaning of the soul that leaves people feeling relieved and teams feeling connected on a level they’ve never felt before.
