Evergreen Escapes

Seattle-based outdoor adventure company is offering private team-building retreats for corporate groups

Evergreen Escapes, a local outdoor adventure company based in Seattle, is now offering private team-building retreats for corporate groups.

Programs are customized to meet the needs and objectives of each group. Sustainability, wilderness and adventure set the stage for these hands-on challenges that encourage leadership, communication and problem-solving skills.

Groups can take part in such activities as scavenger hunts using GPS and/or maps and compasses, kayaking, rock climbing, hiking, challenge courses, wilderness survival, whitewater rafting and snow-based adventures. Each group is led by a professional naturalist who is dedicated to teaching people about sustainable travel.

A variety of high-profile corporate groups have already booked Northwest experiences with Evergreen Escapes. Among them are Microsoft, Nike Golf, Boeing, Nokia and Tommy Hilfiger.

Programs range from half- and full-day corporate escapes or team-building experiences to week-long retreats.
