5 camping essentials for your next team building retreat

That dreaded email: there’s a mandatory work trip. You’ll either be elated or devastated to know that your essential travels are for team building rather than actual business, but you’re not alone if you find yourself unprepared for camping with your coworkers. If you’re not one of the folks who have outdoor gear at the ready, it’s time to go shopping.

Luckily, outdoor companies like Wise Owl carry more than enough camping gear and creature comforts to help you make it through your next (or even your first) company team-building retreat. Even better—they’re all available for purchase and delivery on Amazon! Just because your team-building retreat will be a lot of work doesn’t mean your packing has to be.

Remember, company camping trips don’t have to be uncomfortable and inconvenient. Even if you’re not the biggest fan of the great outdoors, you can absolutely make the best of it. Sure, it may take a few creature comforts to make the difference, but if it makes you happy—who cares! You should feel free to enjoy your weatherproof shelter and fancy camping towel to your heart’s content.

With your high-tech outdoor equipment at the ready, you’re sure to impress your coworkers, too. They’ll appreciate your preparation and dedication to the trip, while you enjoy staying warm, dry, and bug bite-free for the entire trip. You’re welcome!
