Team Building in Houston, Texas
The biggest city in the Texas, Houston is a powerhouse fueled by the aerospace, energy, and shipping industries. This Lone Star state metropolis is full of great parks and venues for team building activities, plus it’s right next to Galveston Bay which leads out to the beautiful Gulf Coast where we can do team sailing events. Discovery Park, situated in the middle of downtown Houston, covers twelve full acres and features numerous art installations.
Between team building and training activities, your corporate group can also explore one of the eighteen museums in the city’s museum district. Houston has so much to offer, from the forested parks in The Woodlands to sailing on the coast at Kemah, the city provides as much outdoor opportunity as it does cultural diversity. Houston boasts a superb arts scene, international cuisine, and weather that encourages teams to meet there year-round.
GeoTrek in Houston
Houston is the ideal venue for GeoTrek, which blends technology and adventure. Using GPS units, maps and clues, teams navigate their way from destinations such as Hermann Park and Rice Village with the optional reconnoiter to downtown Discovery Green. Strategic planning and problem-solving skills enable teams to earn points as they maneuver their way to find hidden caches in the Art District and on-the-go challenges encourage teams to discover collaborative solutions. GeoTrek pulls your team together similar to beginning a project in the work environment—clarify roles, agree on goals and execute a strategy.
Team Sailing Outside Houston
A major shipping town with access to the Gulf of Mexico, it’s no wonder sailing is so popular in Houston. Team sailing is a great way to not only see Galveston Bay, but it’s also terrific for building communication skills and learning to work together as you help to navigate your vessel. Sailing requires learning a new skill set together, as a group, which is a great corollary for relationship building and knowledge sharing in the workplace. The cute little harbor town of Kemah makes for excellent departure point, with great little cafes and restaurants for before or after your event. There’s even a classic boardwalk offering all the activities you’d expect, like amusement park rides and old-fashioned games and arcades.
Ropes Courses Outside Houston
If you want something a little more adventurous for your team, then you might consider one of our various ropes courses outside of Houston, the closest one being just a half hour away! Ropes courses offer your team the chance to gear up with helmets and harnesses while tackling both group and individual challenges where communication and trust are key. The challenges happen both up in the trees, with cable crossings, climbing, and balancing acts, as well as on the ground, with low rope challenges such as “the wall” and “whale watch”, a team balancing activity. Not only are ropes courses fun, engaging, and enriching from a team bonding perspective, they also make for some great photo opportunities.

The beautiful pools of the downtown Houstonian hotel are a perfect destination for hands-on construction of “sea worthy vessels” in our high energy and fun Build a Boat team building program. This is also a fantastic way to beat the heat on a hot summer day in Texas. Or if you’re looking for professional development, our Communication workshop navigates teams through skill development and growth.
