Team Building in Norwalk, Connecticut
Enjoy team building activities and corporate training set in this picturesque coastal town once known as “Oyster Town”. The town of “Yankee Doodle” dandies, historic Norwalk offers an authentic New England experience with beautiful islands and lighthouses on the Long Island Sound, stately old mansions, and a trendy revitalized historic district.
Set Sail in Norwalk
With one of the most important harbors on the western Long Island Sound and a rich sea-faring history, Norwalk entices you to adventures on the water with our Team Sailing program. Sailing creates a great analogy for the importance of adapting to a constantly changing environment to ensure a team’s, and an organization’s, success. As your group gauges the wind, sets and adjusts your sails, and gets the whole team safely back to Norwalk Harbor, you’ll experience this analogy vividly.
Coastguard-certified Captains orient your group to the 24- to 36-foot sailboats making sure to cover tacking and jibing, sail handling, and steering. You have the opportunity to practice different roles throughout the day: taking the helm, manning a winch or handling a line—all while coaching your teammates on your new skills, sharing risk-taking and handling mistakes, and building trust. The Long Island Sound provides a beautiful and exciting location for your team to compete in a regatta or a time trial, putting your new skills to the test as you outmaneuver the other boats to the finish line.

Our Play for the Kids scavenger hunt in SoNo, or another retail location, focuses on giving back to the community while having fun with your coworkers. Teams search for specific items, collect points along the way and participate in shopping challenges in which the purchases are donated to local kids in need. Consider combining this with a corporate training workshop like our Effective Meetings for Leaders to learn how to make future conferences even more effective, engaging and worth attending. For a truly idyllic retreat, we like the Dolce Norwalk, and the meeting rooms at the Norwalk Inn or Hotel Delamar are conducive to effective discussions.
