As Fall is right around the corner that means back to the classroom and back to extra circulars. We had a very successful Spring and Summer, and we are looking forward to ending our year with a BANG at the Edge of Walton. What better way to end our year and start yours then with a PROMO! For the rest of our season, we will be offering a special fall promotion for $30 per person (minimum charge of $400)

Want to foster more interpersonal growth among your professional team members? Need a chance for your employees or co-workers to get to know each other in a more relaxed setting than the office? Team building retreats are a great way to help your staff establish stronger relationships and work together on something challenging and fun that won’t be reflected on their performance assessment.
We know how valuable those opportunities to bond with co-workers outside of the office are, so we’ve gathered some team-building activities from around Ontario that we think you should try with your staff. There’s something for everyone, from cooking to painting, from horseback riding to kayaking, from spa retreats to unplugged lodges.
1. EDGE OF WALTON CHALLENGE COURSE, Walton (formerly Above the Falls Challenge Course)
Climb and balance your way to the top of a forty-foot tower, strengthen the trust levels of your team with low course activities, or take up the challenge of a mountain biking course. EWCC is no ordinary corporate retreat – it is outdoors in a natural environment, physically, emotionally and mentally challenging. Your success is based on personal growth. Improve group decision-making, develop confidence and connect with fellow workers — all without the usual distractions. Rob and the EWCC team will work with you to develop a program that really focuses on the areas your team needs to grow in.
To start the new year off right, this February the Edge of Walton Challenge Course, in association with the Maitland Valley Conservation Authority, is offering specialized Winter programming designed to get everyone outside, active and enjoying all the season has to offer on Ontario’s West Coast.
With an emphasis on inclusion, communication and cooperation, participants will have the opportunity to try new things, challenge themselves and share in the success that effective teamwork brings.
