Share the Same Mission
Our team building programs employ hands-on learning as well as physical and intellectual challenges integrated with an ecosystem-specific theme, historically accurate storyline and imaginative tale. Our adventures promise to be a fantastic way to develop cohesive, motivated teams in a supportive and inspiring outdoor setting.
EverGreen Escapes Methodology
Our course designers use historically- and regionally-inspired stories set against the awe-inspiring backdrop of the Cascadian landscape to blend elements of team building, natural history interpretation and adventure activities in order to customize a transformative and unforgettable experience for your team. Participants are outfitted with adventure gear and a dossier packet to brief them on their role in the story to accomplish a diverse series of tasks which lead the group to achieving the outcomes which our course designer will help you to distill. Our overall goals will include having fun, being challenged both physically and intellectually and feeling a genuine sense of accomplishment.
The job of your EverGreen Escapes naturalist/facilitator is to keep the group engaged in the mission and sufficiently challenged without any member being pushed beyond their “stretch zone” such that they’re no longer having a positive experience.
It will also be our facilitator’s job to guide the team through reflections throughout the challenges in order to improve communication, efficiency, and productivity. At the end, all groups will rendezvous and share their stories and challenges over the programmatic debrief and celebration which we work with you to devise.
“More than a team-building experience, every guide and facilitator at EverGreen Escapes has a rich background and knowledge of different natural aspects. Whether it’s kayaking in the Puget Sound and learning about the different pods of killer whales or the tides and fish species or facilitating a team building exercise for over 200 people everyone on the team was professional, fun and someone I’d love to sit down and have a beer with to learn more. A fabulous business model and a great group of people!”

“As an event planner, I cannot emphasize how wonderful it is to actually be able to sit back and enjoy something I was involved in coordinating. The team from Evergreen Escapes managed all the details and planning so well, to the Biamp group, everything went off without a hitch. Even when we arrived at Cannon Beach to no electricity, our group was so impressed we were eating at the only restaurant with a wood-fire oven, it couldn’t have gone any smoother.”
~ Abbey Masciarotte of Biamp Systems
“EverGreen Escapes is an amazing group of people that have brought life and a unique energy to our beautiful resort of Cave B Inn at SageCliffe. They have helped our team, clients and even our property realize its full potential. With the exciting adventures of rock climbing, hiking, kayaking and snow shoeing that EverGreen does best paired with the amazing wine, food, stunning overnight accommodations and breathtaking views that Cave B does best we are a recipe for success! They are truly a team of professionals and have helped many of our corporate groups think far “outside the box” and give their attendees something new and different to experience above and beyond the norm of teambuilding activities.”
~ Elizabeth Averill of Cave B Inn at SageCliffe
“Evergreen Escapes epitomizes what a Pacific Northwest tour operator should be. With their biodiesel vans, naturalist guides, focus on local food and wine and sustainable business model, they have been wonderful partners to Washington State Tourism. We have contracted with them many times to host international media and tour operators alike and all trips have earned rave reviews from our guests. We would recommend them to anyone looking to create a memorable PNW experience.”
~ Tammy Guill of Washington State Tourism
“We enjoy working with EverGreen Escapes because of their flexibility and ability to provide top notch adventures throughout the region. From snowshoe trips in the Cascades, bike trips on the San Juans and hikes all over the place they always step up to the plate and allow us to customize the adventure for our associates.”
~ Karl Weiss of Eddie Bauer
“The EverGreen Escape Artists are fantastically creative and incredibly knowledgeable. My team went on a “Search and Rescue” mission created by EverGreen Escapes and we are all dying to do it again. Not only did the experience develop great communication and team work, but it created friendships and, for me, a new love of kayaking. I have since booked another tour with their Portland team, and was once again very impressed.”
