Camaraderie in an office setting can make a huge impact on how much work actually gets done, employee longevity and, more importantly, employee happiness. Camaraderie doesn’t always come easy, though. If you feel like your team needs to relax and do some out-of-office bonding, you need to investigate corporate team building activities.
Luckily, there’s no shortage of team building activities in the Fox Valley! Next time your office needs a pick-me-up, refer back to this list of activities for some easy fun!
Corporate Team Building Activities in the Fox Valley
Hit Some Balls at Topgolf

Even people who don’t love golfing seem to love Topgolf! This laid-back range hosts more than 100 bays. With plenty of food, adult beverages, and music, your team will be engaging in friendly competition in no time!
Cook Together at Entrée Kitchen
Entrée Kitchen: 26W276 Geneva Road Unit A, Carol Stream, IL 60188
While cooking isn’t my forté, I once attended a cooking class as a team-building experience with a bunch of strangers and it was so much fun. None of us knew what we were doing but we all enjoyed eating, so it was a great ice breaker! When you book a team building activity at Entreé Kitchen, everyone will work to prepare an entrée and dessert! Yum!
Let Your Inner Katniss Shine at The Archery Place
The Archery Place: 1725 Crescent Lake Drive B, Montgomery, IL 60538
I don’t know about you, but The Hunger Games renewed my long-dormant interest in archery. (Yes, I legit had an interest after trying out the sport when I was in the sixth grade!) I was excited to find The Archery Place nearby. Not only do they offer classes and leagues, but they also offer a range of corporate team building events.
Drink Wine and Make Art at All Things Art Studio
All Things Art Studio: 1106 West Main Street, St. Charles, IL 60174
Nothing will get everyone laughing together quicker than a little bit of wine and checking out everyone else’s painting talents! All Things Art Studio offers private team building events for groups. You bring the people and the wine and they’ll provide everything else.
Scale Walls at Vertical Endeavors
Vertical Endeavors: 246 Windy Point Dr, Glendale Heights, IL 60139
Vertical Endeavors offers various team building programs, one of which is sure to meet the needs of your organization! Of course, all programs come with the opportunity to climb! According to their website, “Activities are designed to challenge the group’s collective resources and experiences to arrive at new and creative solutions.” Sounds perfect!
Go Back in Time at Funway
Funway: 1335 S River St, Batavia, Illinois 60510
Did you know that Illinois’ largest entertainment center is right here in the Fox Valley? Batavia, to be exact! They have so many different activities that are sure to make for popular team building activities and they may also make you feel like you’re going back in time. (I can’t be the only one who immediately feels like I’m 12 again while anticipating the thrills that are sure to be had while roller skating, bowling, or playing laser tag.) With so many different activities available, a full-day of team-building fun may be necessary!
Work Together to Complete a Scavenger Hunt
Adventures in Scavenger Hunting: All hunts are personalized to your preferred location
Of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention our own custom scavenger hunts in the Fox Valley! Scavenger hunts are GREAT team building activities because people have to work together to find all their items, take silly selfies together, and also compete against the other teams.
Send us a message if there are other corporate team building activities in the Fox Valley we should add to the list!
