Corporate Meetings
+ Retreats

Fresh air nurtures fresh ideas. FortWhyte Alive is the perfect spot for your corporate retreat.

FortWhyte was a great location for our two day corporate retreat! This was the first time our team had met together in six months and it was an enjoyable, productive two days. We very much enjoyed the bison safari, as well as the mindfulness walk through the park on a beautiful fall day!

We’ll help you make it a terrific return on investment. Our event and corporate meeting spaces have all the equipment you need for success.

If you’re looking for a team-building experience like no other, we have programming customizable to your needs:

  • Corporate team and leadership-building activities
  • Professional group instruction in orienteering, canoeing, kayaking, snowshoeing and more
  • Customized interpretive tours and guided hikes

Mature aspen forest surrounds this secluded 2,000 sq.ft. field station. We encourage visitors to walk or carpool in and out of this venue to lighten the carbon footprint.

The 20-minute fresh air hike passing our Bison Prairie and along the lake is the perfect way to decompress before and after meetings. This venue is ideal for up to 35 participants and is available year-round. For overnight stays, two cabins each sleep 10 in a common-style space with a personal window at each bed looking onto the natural world.

The room was well set up to ensure that we could maintain physical distance, and a web camera and microphones were provided so that people could connect to the meeting remotely if necessary. Staff was very careful about following safety guidelines, including the catering service and the excursions.
