Team-Building Activities Near Montreat College 

You Can Go HIking

Can you picture your club’s team getting closer while admiring the Blue Ridge Mountains? Western North Carolina has more hiking trails than most other regions in the world combined. Several possibilities for your club include:

  • A three-mile out-and-back climb to Mount Pisgah offers a 270-degree panorama.
  • Max Patch is a half-mile out-and-back that provides access to additional trails including the Appalachian Trail as well as a 360-degree outlook.
  • A 2.5-mile loop with a magnificent waterfall and views of the mountains, Crabtree Falls is a great team-building hike.
  • With vistas of North Carolina’s Grand Canyon, Linville Gorge offers a variety of paths that range from being quite easy to be among the most difficult on the East Coast.
  • The twelve-mile out-and-back trail to Mount Mitchell from Black Mountain is one of the region’s most difficult day walks or overnight backpacking trails.

Play GellyBall with Your Team

Gellyball is a game where you run, hide, and fire blasters at your club members, similar to paintball and airsoft. However, compared to paintballs or airsoft bbs, this game employs ammo that is 90% water and has a far lesser effect. The impact feels like a rubber band being flicked against you.

Does that imply that it’s dull for adults? In no way! GellyBall blasters are simple to use and very precise up to sixty feet. Anyone can be an expert with a GellyBall blaster, regardless of whether your teammates have years of paintball or airsoft experience or have never even held a paintball gun!

Play Laser Tag

If you haven’t played modern laser tag, you and your team will be in for a big surprise. The game has come a long way in the last few years. Our equipment includes brand-new LaserWar taggers and head straps with sensors. There is no need to wear cumbersome vests or uncomfortable gear. Vibrations and sound effects are used to communicate each player’s actions to the other players.
