Company retreat meets life-changing adventure.

Corporate Retreat in Joshua Tree


Two distinct desert ecosystems, the Mojave and the Colorado, come together in Joshua Tree National Park. A fascinating variety of plants and animals make their homes in a land sculpted by strong winds and occasional torrents of rain. Dark night skies, a rich cultural history, and surreal geologic features add to the wonder of this vast wilderness in southern California.

Where you will connect at the end of the day.

Located just outside the west entrance of Joshua National Park is AutoCamp, a unique experience unto itself. AutoCamp converts classic Airstreams, creating a sense of luxury and nostalgia. In the evenings, circle around the campfire for guided discussion while taking in the expansive views of the surrounding Joshua Tree area.

Team Building Experiences

Joshua Tree National Park is every hiker’s paradise. The terrain variety in this Californian park is astonishing—the hikes take you through deserts, oases, mountains, canyons, rocky mazes, old-timey mining stations, and, of course, a lot of Joshua Trees. There’s also no shortage of great views, as towering rock formations and sweeping vistas await around every bend. And if you keep a close eye on the desert wildlife, you may even spot a desert bighorn sheep, cottontail rabbit or roadrunner.
