This is a great chance for your co-workers to get to know each other in a unique context. Leisurely meals and canoe rides lead to great conversations. A talent show could reveals some hidden talents. There will be reminiscing back at the office.
We can organize a custom Camp Olympics, facilitate team building activities or let relationships form organically during camp activities like capture the flag, archery and rock climbing.
You and your co-workers will return to work refreshed after lounging in the Camp Bonfire hammock grove, roasting s’mores over the campfire and taking quiet walks in the woods.
Customize your event:
We have relationships with dozens of amazing summer camps. Our relationships with these camps will allow for complete customization of your retreat. The food menu, schedule and activities will be tailored to your company’s needs.
We handle all vendor contracts, travel arrangements and insurance. You only have to work with one contact and one contract, us.
We believe that sharing cabins is an essential part of the camp experience. Assigned cabins can mix up staff from across different departments or deepen relationships by bunking existing teams together.
Accommodations range from open-air platform tents to spacious lodge-style cabins with attached bathrooms. Each camper gets a single bed. Some cabins have bunk beds. All of the camps we work with have hot and cold water and flush toilets. We provide linens.
Camp includes meals,snacks, drinks and treats. Our camp food is upgraded for an adult palate-healthy and delicious comfort food. Meals are served buffet style with a salad bar and a variety of options. We can accommodate vegetarian, vegan, gluten,dairy, soy and nut free diets.
Our photographer and videographer can beautifully document the experience so all of you can stay in the moment at camp and then relive camp back at the office.
We set up a technology area and make the rest of the camp technology free. This encourages people to stay in the moment, connect with each other and actually take a break from work. Having a photographer and videographer on hand eases people’s worries about recording every moment.
We can arrange for a luxury coach bus or a classic school bus to provide comfortable and reliable round trip transportation between your office and camp.
Camp Bonfire has a roster of skilled and experienced facilitators, teaching artists, entertainers, trainers and artists that we can bring to your retreat to provide additional programming. Let us work with you to create the perfect camp schedule.

When is the best time to hold a retreat?
Most summer camps we rent are available from late spring until mid-June and from Mid-August to the end of October. If you want to earn the admiration of your employees and save money, hold your retreat during the workweek.
How far in advance should we book a retreat?
Eight to sixteen months allows us to give you a larger variety of options and keep costs low.
How nice are the cabins?
It’s up to you, and it depends on the camp. We can arrange for cabins from rustic to modern. They’re all summer camps though so people will be sharing cabins and maybe climbing into a top bunk.
How good is the food?
It’s excellent. Really. We only work with camps that can provide delicious and healthy food.

Summer Camp experiences are great for corporate retreats of all kinds, but also for reunions, conferences, and weddings (just ask Benjamin).
