What happens when you put 20 uber talented techies at The June for two nights? A lot of Instagramming.... and Camp Nudge, a two-day corporate retreat for the team at Nudge Rewards. Nudge is a start-up that delivers mobile solutions designed to engage front-line managers and employees to improve team performance and profitability. Let’s just say this team knows a thing or two about creating amazing culture. Together with The June, we threw one epic experience.
CHECK-IN @ THE JUNE
MINUTE TO WIN IT
It’s actually pretty simple - you’ve got one minute to win it!
A harvest table for 20 was set-up in our Bohemian Forest behind the motel, and dinner was catered by County Yum Club. The menu a mix of shawarma platters, roasted potatoes, chickpeas, hummus, garlic spread and fresh pitas.
In their Camp Nudge crewnecks, the team gathered around for some laughs and stories…over wine and craft beer of course.
FRESH PRESSED JUICE
At The June we have a mantra - detox before we retox. The team enjoyed freshly pressed juices from Small Town Juicery.
NAMASTE ALL DAY
The team gathered up at the Pavillion at Lake on the Mountain to practice gratitude and movement with a gentle flow class. Lake on the Mountain is really just that – a lake on top of a mountain – and it’s known to be a very sacred spot in The County, so the prefect setting for the team’s morning practice.
WORK WORK WORK
It can’t be all fun and games. The team came together in the lobby bar for some team meetings and presentations.
WHEELS ON THE BUS GO ROUND AND ROUND
Now the fun begins! We rented a yellow school bus to take the team around to all our favourite wineries and breweries for the afternoon. It was less than 5 minutes aboard the bus when the singalong began.
LUNCH & TASTING AT NORMAN HARDIE
We’ve said it many times before. A trip to The County is not complete without a glass of Norman Hardie wine and his famous pizza from the woodfire pizza oven. Read our latest review of Norman Hardie.
HINTERLAND & COUNTY ROAD BEER
Cherry Gose for the win. Check out our recent post on Hinterland.
FLIGHTS @ PRINCE EDDY’S
Palms and surfer vibes. This place is definitely June approved. We sampled their full portfolio of beers, including a blueberry wheat beer that was just bottled.
FOOD TRUCK @ THE JUNE
Mike’s BBQ rolled-up to The June to feed this crew. The menu: cornbread and ribs.
CAMPIRE & S’MORES
Fireside chats and s’mores were on tap for the evening ahead.
Nothing says team bonding like crowding into a motel room to sing karaoke. Let’s just say that’s how the night ended.
That’s a wrap folks.
