Team Building

For any business, an investment in effective team-building activities will provide a strong return through increased productivity and employee retention. Typically however, you need to get well away from the work environment to accurately reflect and begin real change.

Getting real
In these times of careful investment, over-nighting at a lavish corporate venue can send mixed messages that will undermine trust. Houghtons Bush Camp provides a comfortable, genuine and entirely natural environment for you and your team.

Unwind and create fresh perspectives
Walk through the native forest, get lost orienteering, tackle the group problem-solving course or support each other through the high-wire confidence course. By interacting on an equal level in enjoyable new situations, you and your team will develop greater trust. You’ll also discover hidden talents and a new appreciation for each other. This all helps to lay the foundation for discussions and planning sessions that are more open, collaborative and productive.

Exclusive use of space to think, share and plan
Houghtons Bush Camp provides comfortable indoor and sheltered outdoor spaces for presentations, team meetings, shared activities and planning sessions. There’s even a small comfortable lounge for team leader meetings or a quiet private space as required. Your booking includes exclusive use of the entire property, including the onsite forest, so you won’t be interrupted by others. There’s also plenty of space for individual working relationships to grow.

Convenient attractive location
Handy to central Auckland, Houghtons Bush Camp offers most teams the chance to get away from it all without loosing time and money through lengthy travel.  The beautiful natural environment, wild west coast beach and unique local opportunities combine to form a very attractive package. It’s a winning combination that encourages willing attendance and positive participation from everyone involved.

Self-cater or hire professionals
The commercial-style kitchen makes it easy to prepare your own meals if you wish. This can be quite team building in itself. You are also welcome to hire a commercial caterer of your choice. It’s up to you. Similarly, if you’d like to extend your onsite activity programme you’re welcome to hire a professional adventure activity provider.
