A Fresh Option for Team Building and Social Gatherings
Are you looking for a unique and memorable way to do teambuilding with your work crew? Trying to come up with something fun for a bachelorette party, sorority event, birthday celebration, family reunion or “Girls Weekend”? How about giving “Glamping at Castleton Farms” a try?
“Glamping” is camping without having to “rough it!” We all romanticize camping to some degree and recognize the benefits it affords for bonding and enjoyment. Images of good conversation, singing around an open fire, falling asleep under the stars, waking up to a piping hot mug of coffee, and watching the sunrise all pass through our minds - until we remember the nasty mosquitoes, hard ground, and not so hot coffee.
This past Spring Castleton Farms welcomed its first group of “glampers” on property - the Farragut Middle School Cheer Team! The team’s coach, Megan Aaron, was looking for an opportunity to bring the girls together away from their normal surroundings so they could all get to know each other better and practice in a fresh environment.
The girls arrived and were immediately busy creating their own personal space. No sleeping bags here! The Farragut Middle School Cheerleaders were each assigned a beautifully draped “room” in The Carriage House complete with a mattress, bedding, and chandelier! Their customized package included decorating supplies for them to personalize their “rooms” which was a fun project to help them get to know each other better and the perfect activity for middle school girls.
“They had such a great time, “ shared Coach Megan, “The activities and environment were perfectly planned for our group to bond and have some fun. I would recommend this experience to any group wanting to bond and create an experience no one will forget. The beauty of it is that Castleton will customize the “glamping” to suit your group’s particular style and need. And, did I mention the Farm is absolutely gorgeous?”
The next 24 hours included fun, games, bonfire, group meals, midnight snack, and even a practice session with The University of Tennessee’s cheerleader, Chelsea Harris! I think it is safe to say that fun was had by all.
“The girls are still talking about the experience!” said Coach Megan.
So, do you want to go “glamping?” Whether you’re a sports team, youth group, business colleagues, or friends needing a “Girls Night Out,” the team at Castleton would love to talk to you about your vision for your group’s night of “glamping.” Whether your goal is team building, celebrating a birthday or just making new memories, Castleton will assign you your own “Camp Director” (a.k.a.
