Team Building

Emporia knows small groups.

Team building activities are a great way of improving communication, morale, and productivity, as well as helping employees or new teams to get to know each other better. Our team at the Emporia Convention and Visitors Bureau is excited to help your team find the perfect place to meet up and foster strong bonds.

Conveniently located on Interstate-35, Emporia is just 90 minutes from Wichita and Kansas City. Read below for a few suggested team building activities, or contact us for personalized suggestions and planning assistance.

Disc Golf Capital of the World

Home to the world’s largest disc golf tournament, Emporia has both beautiful and challenging courses designed by pros. The game is easy to learn and a great way to enjoy the outdoors with a friendly competition. Start the day with a warehouse tour of Dynamic Discs. Your team will be inspired by the story of a local entrepreneur with humble beginnings who has grown Dynamic Discs into one of the nation’s largest disc golf retailers. While on tour, your group will be able to hot stamp their own commemorative disc. Never played disc golf? No problem. The staff at Dynamic Discs will take the time to teach the basics!

Downtown Emporia

Take a stroll in the downtown area, USA Today’s #1 rated Best Main Street in the USA, where you’ll enjoy several boutiques, antique shops, and specialty stores. Be sure to stop into the Sweet Granada Chocolate Cafe, try a sandwich with homemade bread from Amanda’s Bakery, or try a wine tasting at  Twin Rivers Winery and Gourmet Shoppe.

David Traylor Zoo

If your colleagues love animals, take a short stroll through the David Traylor Zoo. This botanical setting is home to the new Mission Madagascar exhibit. The zoo is fully supported by Emporia donors and admission is free.

Nightlife

End your day with dinner and drinks at Radius Brewing Co., known for their brick-oven pizzas and craft beer brewed in the center of the dining room! For more nightlife options, click here.
