Berkshire Outdoor Center has partnered with Cranwell Resort, Spa and Golf Club to provide a variety of team development programs, in line with our Corporate conference and retreat programs. All of our programs at Berkshire Outdoor Center are tailored specifically for the group's needs.

Groups staying at Cranwell can benefit from our fabulous programs in one of several ways:

Schedule a Program at our Berkshire Outdoor Center Facilities

Even though you are staying at Cranwell Resort, we can transfer you to our facilities, right here in the Berkshires. Upon arrival, we will give you a quick orientation and then whisk you away to our state-of-the-art, educational challenge course. Utilizing low and high elements, we will provide exceptional, tailored programming to help your team achieve your goals. Whether focused on developing leadership skills, such as communication, trust and collaboration, or just having a great time on our dual zip lines, we can provide facilitated activities to meet your needs. Visit Corporate Retreat for more information. This program can be booked for several hours, a half day or full day. Other programming options include canoeing and kayaking, using our sauna and swimming in our private ponds, or hiking on our fabulous trails. Winter activities include instructional or recreational cross-country skiing and snowshoeing on almost 3,000 acres of groomed and natural trails. Quote will include all transfers, meals and activities.

Schedule our Mobile Programs On-Site at Cranwell Resort

Our professional facilitators travel to Cranwell Resort to provide groups with 2 hour or 4 hour leadership development programs, utilizing our mobile low ropes elements and other initiatives to provide your team with an experiential education. Winter activities can also include instructional cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

Our corporate programs are designed to

  • encourage collaboration
