Teambuilding and Corporate Development
River and Trail Outfitters currently runs Teambuilding, Corporate Development, and Youth Development programs for many organizations within the Baltimore, Maryland, Washington DC, and Northern Virginia area.
Programs are individually tailored to meet the specific outcomes required by the participating organizations and range in scope from low impact, on the ground activities to more exhilarating challenges on our rock climbing wall and on the river with activities such as whitewater rafting. Half-day programs run four hours in length and full-day programs may be up to eight hours, depending upon the particular group’s needs.
Another plus about coming with us…. We do food! Our Blue Heron Grill offers excellent catering from deli style picnics to tasty barbeques, all presented in a relaxing, outdoor setting.
