Corporate Retreat Center

group lodge and retreat center

Team building is a vital part of any corporation’s strategy for success.  The best companies build in time for their employees to bond in ways that will bring them together as a cohesive unit.  Many times, it’s impossible to do this during the normal work day- there are always meetings to be had, tasks to be finished, and goals to be met.  That’s where the corporate retreat comes in.

Corporate retreats are an excellent way for teams to come together and bond on a personal level.  When you take your team out of their usual environment, free from the usual distractions, it opens them up to make real connections with their co-workers.  A change of environment may be all your team needs to accept important information in a new way, to build relationships on a deeper level, to feel valued and important, and to relax, far away from the normal stresses and responsibilities of the workplace.  Employees who are happy, rejuvenated, and who enjoy each other’s company will drive your profit margins and take your business to unimaginable new heights.

If you are looking for a location off-site that will offer privacy and convenience for your next corporate retreat, there is no place better than White Buffalo Ranch.  Located on 800 acres not far from Lebanon, Missouri, this upscale private retreat center is a short dive away from Kansas City, Springfield, St. Louis, Columbia, and Jefferson City.  Our central location in the Missouri Ozarks of the Midwest makes getting here easy.

There’s no better way to bond than cooking a meal together, and White Buffalo Ranch’s large commercial kitchen allows your group to do just that.  Instead of having to pause your team-building activities by packing up and heading into town to eat at a restaurant, why not just bring your own food and cook at the ranch?  The large dining room can easily seat everyone in your group, so the team building doesn’t have to stop for meals.  You could also dine outside on the patio.  There’s even a fireplace on the patio to keep you warm on chilly nights!

There are plenty of things to do at White Buffalo Ranch that will help your employees bond and become a stronger unit together.  Your group could engage in a spirited round of croquet or bocce or could take a dip in the ranch’s large in-ground pool.  Take a ranch tour and meet the full-time residents (our cattle and other animals).  Bring your fishing gear or go for a paddle in our ponds.

Team building is an important part of any company’s success.  Book White Buffalo Ranch for your next corporate retreat.  Your employees will make connections with each other that will bring your team closer together, and they will return to work rested, rejuvenated, and ready to take your business to the next level!
