Team building in South Limburg

In team building collaboration is central with the aim being to strengthen social bonding, trust and group dynamics. And that can be a real challenge. The Smockelaer will gladly help. Through our experience in training combined with a unique location and supplemented by our organizational and creative skills we are able to organize an appropriate activity which the whole group will remember fondly.

Fun, sporty, exciting or energetic activities

Our strength at the Smockelaer is that we organize totally customized team building activities. For sporty colleagues an MTB clinic with a former Tour de France cyclist can be a pleasant challenge. A walk with the nature guide through the hilly countryside of South Limburg can be an inspiring break from a meeting. Or rather a culinary challenge? Then try a cooking class with our chef.

Some successful activities

  • Laughter yoga
  • Vakwerkhuys

Combine activities for optimal results

You want your employees or colleagues to work concentrated, pay attention to detail, to be able to completely rely on each other and work well together. How will you strengthen these qualities? We recommend following a program of a number of activities. For example, during a walk with the nature guide you could go into the woods to look for edible mushrooms which you would then prepare during the cooking clinic. This can promote cooperation, timing, safety, and of course having fun together. Quite a challenge!

Unique real life game Vakwerkhuys in collaboration with TopChange

De Smockelaer and TopChange have developed a unique real life game called Vakverkhuys. The game combines training themes in one or more days to build an authentic Vakwerkhuys on a scale of 1:4. Colleagues are therefore building a complete copy of the confrerence location ‘het Vakwerkhuys’ in the Vakwerkhuys itself. Building a house in a house! Building a timber framed house is a tricky business and requires a lot from the participants. Effective and efficient working, collaboration, project orientated working and perfect mutual communication are required to achieve the desired results.

Relaxed end to a team building session

The advantage of Smockelaer is that we have 7 different group accommodations. After a long and intense day of work on team building you can finish off completely relaxed by staying in a group accommodation. There are various accommodations with a wide range of facilities, including a luxury group villa with indoor pool and Jacuzzi. Now that’s what we call relaxing...
