It’s time to plan the summer corporate outing and the pressure is on to get creative—fast. Here are a few ideas from the experts.
Rent a House for the Sales Team
Renting a house where your team can relax and unwind for a weekend is a fantastic way to let the stress of the average work week melt away. In a world of multigenerational teams, some time away from the computers, smartphones and tablets at a local cabin or getaway location can be a great way to encourage some much-needed bonding.

Around the World Food Theme
Consider incorporating everyone’s worldwide favorites into an international picnic to celebrate a variety of cultures and staff members who might have roots in a different part of the globe. A menu might include taco salad, German potato salad, Polish sausage, Italian cookies and so much more. Pair these picnic foods with games, activities, décor and even costumes from all over.

Get Out on the Water
Most destinations have an opportunity to paddle, whether informally or on a guided tour. In Boston, PaddleBoston takes groups on skyline tours and harbor tours, alongside the scullers on the Charles River, or further into the countryside on the Sudbury River, and can combine barbeque and paddling for an unforgettable experience.
Fun amusement park-style entertainers are perfect for summer outings. Caricature artists, clowns, balloon artists, trapeze artists, stunt men, magicians, DJs, acrobats, face painters, jugglers, ventriloquists, comedians, fortune tellers, puppeteers, bands, soloists, dancers, and impersonators are different types of entertainers you could hire for a summer event.

Corporate Survivor Program
Summer is all about staying on the island, and a Corporate Survivor program is inclusive rather than exclusive. In one twist, teammates don’t turn on one another and vote each other off; instead, teams work to save their teammates and keep them on the island. Source: Teambonding.com
