Team Building Canoe Trip

Team build your way to a better business…

Canoeing is a perfect way to build up your business’s team morale. A team that works well together is more productive, more effective, more successful, and let’s be honest, more fun to work with! This is something we at Canoe the Caney agree with wholeheartedly. Our business is all about working together as a team! Imagine trying to load or unload 20 canoes with a partner who goes left when you go right, or tries to lift to slot 4 when you’re loading slot 2.

Team work is key and we have the perfect team building exercise that is not only productive but loads of fun as well!

Welcome to Canoe the Caney!

We have a beautiful class 1 river located just outside of Cookeville, TN where nature steps in and the hustle and bustle of busy phones and paperwork disappear. Nothing breaks the ice like doing a fun activity together and making memories. As an added bonus, canoeing is a natural team activity requiring communication and working together for a desired goal. Not only is this a wonderful exercise but it’s something fun that will help build effective working relationships and increase office moral.

When paddling down river, your team will learn to communicate and work together to steer and paddle their boats around natural obstacles in the river. This type of activity also provides a relaxing and comfortable environment for employees to interact away from the pressure of the workplace setting. You can even introduce some friendly competition with our team challenges!

Come with your own plan or let us help set up the team build method by following our easy guide/drive exercise.

  • Seat 1 will be the “guide”. This person looks out for hazards and communicates to their partner which way to steer the boat.
  • Seat 2 will be the “drive”. This person controls the direction of the boat by acting as a rudder.

Team Building can be a great investment for your company! Forbes has a great article about the value of team building. It goes so far as to claim that team building is the most important investment you can make for your people!

It builds trust, mitigates conflict, encourages communication, and increases collaboration. Effective team building means more engaged employees, which is good for company culture and boosting the bottom line. It can also be adventurous and enjoyable if you do it with a little pizzazz.” –

Another article states, “Of all organizational activities, one study found team-development to have the strongest effect (versus financial measures) for improving organizational performance.”
