If you’re looking for a memorable staff retreat in Calgary, this is definitely it.


Imagine participating in a spirited bounce-off challenge alongside your coworker, your constant companion in friendly rivalry. Or knocking your boss into a foam pit with a giant noodle in a (fully-sanctioned) battle.


These team-building activities are all encouraged during staff retreats at Flying Squirrel trampoline park in north Calgary, where the first order of business is having fun.


Here are five ways a staff retreat at Flying Squirrel will translate into positive and healthy team spirit at work.


  1. Get on the same page


Your group will leave feeling energized, motivated and most importantly, united in your goals. There’s just something about embracing silly, childlike fun together as a team that leaves you feeling more cohesive as a unit. This fun group experience will continue to carry through into regular work day life, and you will see for yourself the impact it will make on productivity and teamwork.


  1. Make memories


When you share collective positive memories as a group, it has a way of helping everyone feel happy to be part of the team. There is truly no more unique way to make memories as a team than when you’re laughing, sweating and having fun (and friendly competitions) with each other.


  1. Foster a healthy workplace culture


A workplace that values both physical and mental health is a place that employees want to work. With team-building activities during staff retreats at Flying Squirrel in north Calgary, your team will feel seen, cared for and valued — which will directly impact their health. 


  1. Forget your responsibilities for the day


Success is important but focusing solely on working hard, at all times, leaves workers feeling burned out. Make sure your team knows that you not only want them to enjoy their job, you also want them to forget about it completely sometimes. When we're deep in collaborative projects, it's easy to lose sight of the fact that our colleagues are not just teammates, but individuals with diverse aspirations and hobbies beyond our shared work. At Flying Squirrel, employees will have a chance to forget about those looming deadlines and the day-to-day stresses of the office for a few hours.


  1. Let someone else be in charge


Boss, we’re looking at you. If you let your team see you as a person first, and a boss second (just for the day!) you’ll love the results you see. Let our experienced team take care of your team for the day. We’ll be the staff retreat leaders so you can focus on having fun.
