Creative Team Building Activities

Bring your team along for a new adventure in the Washington, DC area! Bethesda, Gaithersburg, Germantown, Rockville and Silver Spring are all within Montgomery County, located on the northern borders of Washington, DC.

Think not just “outside the box” but “outside of the office” for your next meeting teambuilding event.


VisArts Rockville is a unique venue for meetings and events. The Buchanan Room at VisArts is ideal for off-site meetings, management retreats, fundraising events, team building workshops, holiday office parties and award dinners. The spacious interior and beautiful view of Rockville Town Square, excellent acoustics and lighting, permanent dance floor and resident artists’ studios make for a noteworthy event site. Conveniently located in Rockville Town Square, VisArts is walking distance from the Rockville Metro Station.

A fun idea for meetings is to include a 1 day art class upstairs at VisArts. This could be a creative break from a long meeting, or a bonus activity at the end of a conference. The options are endless – painting, ceramics, mosaics and more! The most popular class is Painting Under the Stars which takes the class on the rooftop overlooking downtown Rockville. The three art galleries rotate critically-acclaimed shows year round.

The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring and Go Ape!

Take your meeting to new heights – literally! The treetop adventure courses feature zip lines and obstacle courses, which are an excellent team building activity. A series of bridges form “aerial trails” throughout the forest.

Everyone can participate, no matter the skill level. Choose from different color-coded trails, from “beginner” (easier and lower to the ground) to intermediate, to advanced (the most challenging).

Both parks have picnic shelters available for outdoor seating and eating!
