Sustainable Communities Field School

Immerse your team in an environment that promotes teamwork, creativity and fun with an offsite experience that leaves the team feeling inspired, energized and connected at the beautiful UBC Botanical Garden. Join us in activities such as exploring a 300-metre aerial trail system perched in the canopy of the temperate rainforest, tasting food fresh from the garden, and enjoying a long table lunch together. We offer a program which will help to tailor your experience around important themes such as interconnection, communication, collaboration, leadership, innovation and mindfulness.

With opportunities for team-building activities throughout the day, the experience aims to build positive relationships within your team in an outdoor setting.

  • Foster corporate team building and employee engagement

  • Reward your hard-working team with fun in a beautiful and natural space
  • Energize your organization to fuel creativity and connection
  • Build capacity and skillsets by shaping your experience to suit the needs of your team
