Corporate Retreats & Team Building


Our Corporate outings and weekend retreats offer employees and adult groups the opportunity to relax and enjoy the camaraderie of shared group activities in an outdoor setting. Host a team development event or a summer staff appreciation day using our challenge course, zip line and sea kayaks.

Cow Island also prides itself on our gourmet meals prepared by our Executive Chef in our full- service professional kitchen. He can create anything from a simple lunch to a traditional Maine lobster bake.

We also have four yurts on the island that can accommodate up to 40 people overnight comfortably as well as additional tenting space.

Cow Island’s rustic setting can accommodate a variety of groups and activities and offers something for everyone.
