At Earth Calling we provide fun and effective outdoor, nature based corporate events. Spending time outdoors in natural places can be very beneficial for stress relief, building team relationships and improving creativity.
We offer a range of different events that can achieve various outcomes. Whether you are looking for an event that will simply get your team out of the office to have some fun, or an event that encourages out of the box thinking and relationship building, we have got you covered.
Below you will see the event types that we offer and the activities you can choose from. If you have a special request for an event then let us know – we are very flexible. Events can run for half or a full day and catering can be provided. To discuss ideas, enquire about costs, and book days, please email Gus.
