Selecting Dates and Duration

The foundation of a successful retreat lies in selecting the right dates and duration that align with your team’s availability and the objectives you aim to achieve. Consider the following:

  • Seasonal Preferences: The Grand Canyon offers distinct experiences across different seasons. Determine if your team prefers the lush landscapes of spring/summer or the serene beauty of fall/winter.
  • Team Availability: Poll team members for availability to choose dates that minimize conflicts and ensure maximum participation.
  • Retreat Objectives vs. Duration: Balance your retreat objectives with an appropriate duration—enough to disconnect, achieve goals, and rejuvenate without impacting operational workflows.

Accommodation Options

Your choice of accommodation can significantly affect the retreat’s overall experience. GCA works closely with a variety of accommodations to suit every preference:

  • Inside the Park: Staying within the Grand Canyon National Park offers immersive experiences but requires early booking due to high demand and limits after hours events.
  • Nearby Towns: Towns like Flagstaff and Williams provide diverse lodging options from rustic cabins to luxury resorts, often with more flexibility and availability. They also provide access to additional events, more food options, and internet!
