Why take my athletic or corporate team to a Get Burly retreat? 

Through our experiences, we believe a person who is aware of who they truly are allows them to help the development of those around them.  It is these people who we call leaders.  At Get Burly we believe that in order for a group or team to work together towards a common goal, each individual needs to know who it is that they are and what they can bring to the groups overall success. 

How do we cultivate leaders? 

We both challenge and support the group together as one.  We believe that in order to develop either as an individual or a group we must face adversity.  We intentionally select or create activities or situations where the group will be tested.  Whether it's a physical, emotional or mental challenge, we serve as facilitators in order to build communication, trust and passion amongst the group.
