Your Corporate Retreat at Stella Plantation
Stella Plantation has taken its event management skills and expanded to the world of corporate events! Leave the gray cubicles behind and get your team outside to one of southern Louisiana’s finest corporate retreat experiences.
Companies are looking for new avenues to energize employees and achieve goals through corporate retreats. Moreover, the corporate retreat has become a go-to in developing positive work relationships between different entities within the company. Leaving the boardroom and “literally” moving into new territory has a positive impact that can increase the company’s bottom line.
Getting out of the office is no longer just a welcome respite but crucial in the development of your company’s culture. Stella Plantation wants you to have not only a successful corporate retreat but to have a great time while you stay on our grounds.
Here are a few corporate retreat activities that your company can enjoy at Stella Plantation.
1. The Outdoor Experience
Corporate retreats are a great mix of fun and out-of-the-box activities while building relationships with peers and/or clients. Stella, to this day, is still a working plantation that sits on 1,500 acres which features lush marshes, cypress and oak trees, crawfish ponds, and forests.
Combining the two, Stella offers a variety of outdoor activities that will allow for peer bonding and a memorable time!
Stella has over 90 species of birds! Grab some binoculars and see how many species you can discover.
Take a leisurely walk, run, or bike ride through Stella’s forested grounds.
If you’re visiting during crawfish season, hop on one of our boats to learn how crawfish are raised and caught, then catch some for yourself!
Looking to relax or get some physical activity? Let us organize a yoga class for you under our 250-year-old Oak trees.
Stella can always customize your team activities so to best fit your group!
2. Off-site Excursions
Your company’s team building exercises aren’t only restricted to Stella Plantation’s grounds. When you’ve been around as long as we have, you make a lot of contacts and friends around the region.
You can hit the water for some inshore and offshore fishing with some of our preferred vendors or try some duck hunting in nearby Delacroix. Feeling a bit more traditional? Golfing or go-cart racing are all within an easy drive from Stella Plantation.
3. Hunting Experiences
A day of hunting at Stella offers a private and customizable experience for everyone. As avid hunters, we have a clear understanding of the level of service we would want, and at Stella we have made sure to offer a wide variety of customizable and easy to plan hunting options for your group.
For our group hunters, try our European style tower Pheasant shoots or take a guided Quail and Chukar hunts. Solo shooting more your thing? We can arrange a fair chase hog hunt for you! If you prefer to shoot skeet, that too can be arranged!
4. Team building exercises
Avoid burn out or brain freeze by keeping those bodies moving! Meetings, no matter where they are, can begin to drag if your team is sitting around too much. The brain just begins to wander. We’re only human!
Stella has all the space you will need for team building activities. You can set up lawn games on our front lawn, pile everyone into our rustic wagon for a wagon ride around the property or hit the woods for a few hours of bird watching.
Moving inside, Stella Plantation’s main house has large open areas to provide the backdrop for invigorating brainstorming sessions. Our six flat screens scattered throughout the house enable you to drive the point home with multimedia presentations.
5. Live and eat well
All of this physical and mental activity will have your team burning a ton of fuel. Obviously, you can bring in whatever foods you would like to keep in our Main House but, if you want to relax, Stella Plantation can provide the finest in dining experiences.
Our executive chefs can create stunning menus to keep everyone’s belly happy and mind sharp. Stella has long held a “Living Off the Land” policy and we do everything we can to source local ingredients for our meals. How local? Kick back and enjoy some local fish and game along with a selection from our citrus groves. We are truly farm-to-table at Stella Plantation!
Also, if you decide to stay with us during crawfish season, you can have your very own crawfish boil featuring Louisiana’s favorite crustaceans from our crawfish ponds. Like almost everything else at Stella, you’re only limited by your imagination.
After your feast, feel free to belly up to our Copper Bar and experience some of the finest libations Louisiana has to offer!
