Elora Mill and Corporate Team Building Activities in Elora

Get your boss to pay for fun team building in Elora, Ontario!

When the Elora Mill closed down, the public wondered what all the Toronto corporate groups would do now that there were no longer conference rooms and a hotel to book overnight retreats in Elora that could accommodate groups of 20 to 30.

With the re-opening of the Elora Mill this year (2019) after a $27 million renovation, meeting planners, event planners and Human Resource professionals can breathe a sigh of relief. Everything will be much easier now when planning a corporate development day in beautiful Elora. The Elora Mill can provide the venue, the catering, the rooms, the spa and the pool. ONE AXE Pursuits can provide the team building, team bonding and team development program that is completely unique and engaging.

ONE AXE Pursuits has been operating the outdoor corporate team building activities and team development programs in Elora for over twenty years.

The quaint historic village, adjacent to the spectacular gorge, provides an incredible experience for the corporate retreat guests. Most teams start their day with a morning meeting with a facilitator or coach, break for a delicious lunch and then dive into team building activities with ONE AXE Pursuits. Smaller groups can chose to have their meeting at the ONE AXE board room if they want to walk 100 steps to their activity.

There are three outdoor programs to choose from.

Adventure Team Challenge is great for larger groups (20 participants or more). This program includes a zipline, rappel, low ropes, cable ladder climb up the cliff and a navigation component. Teams can be competitive and earn points to find what team gained the most points to win, or they can compile their scores to compare with previous companies.

Amazing Elora Race has been the most popular for groups of all sizes, with approximately 14 clues scattered around the village of Elora, in both urban and wilderness areas. There are roadblocks and detours as well as options to choose gross or fun food challenges and add high intensity rope challenges such a zipline or rappel stations.

For an indoor option, Mission Impossible is a spy-training event where teams work together to cross laser fields, rappel through a trap door, decipher messages, escape from a cage, avoid trip wires and defuse a bomb. Mission Impossible can be run at ONE AXE's Elora office with 10,000 s.f. of space. The Mission Impossible program is also portable and can run at various other locations. Other popular locations for the program include the Toronto Film Studios and the Fermenting Cellar in the Distillery District in Toronto.

Corporate groups can choose various options of how they want the facilitator or coach to be involved during the event, as well as options for sessions before and after the event. Professional videos and photos are also options for teams wanting to remember their day out.

Come to Elora and let ONE AXE Pursuits help you book your next corporate team building event or experience. We would be happy to customize a program for your needs.
