Group Outings with CW Outfitting
We want to host your next group outing! Whether it be a business outing, a team-building event, or a family get-together, we offer various options for groups ranging from a few people to over 40. Whether you decide to canoe the river to build team cohesion among your employees, go kayak fishing with a few clients, or try out stand up paddleboarding at Warner Lake Park for a family get-together, you are bound to have a great time! Read on for our most common group outing options.
River Trips: We offer two different river trips:
- An 8 mile trip (2-3 hours; 4-5 hours if fishing) from Clearwater to Becker
- And a 13 mile trip (4-5 hours; 6-8 hours if fishing) from St. Cloud to Clearwater.
Our river trips are on a stretch of the Mississippi River that is designated "Wild & Scenic" by the DNR. There are miles of natural shoreline with islands and some campsites to enjoy along the way. The occasional sand bars and sandy shorelines make for great swimming, and the shallow, rocky river bottom makes for spectacular fishing. Allow some time before and after your trip for equipment issue, paperwork, and shuttling.
Warner Lake: This is a small, non-motorized lake that is scenic, calm, and full of wildlife. The park's thick, surrounding woods and foliage keep the clean, clear water smooth throughout the year, providing a perfect location for stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, and canoeing for your group. Along the southern shore of the lake is a large picnic area and sandy swimming beach to add to the groups enjoyment. The lake is a short 2 mile drive from our parking lot and we can schedule as much time at the lake as you like. Allow some time before and after the trip for equipment issue, paperwork, and shuttling.
Catering: Let us provide catering for your group as part of your day of team-building, networking, business or just plain fun! The delicious options include everything from BBQ to hors d'oeuvres to main buffet style entrees.
Entertainment: We can provide other entertainment besides paddling! From live music to lawn games such as bean bag toss and boche ball, don't let the fun stay on the water! For more details on live music and game options, please contact us.
Prices and Scheduling
For groups of 8 or more with a single group coordinator to take care of the reservation and payment, we are able to offer great group pricing. It is generally 15% - 30% off regular prices depending on the size of the group and options selected. Please have your group coordinator contact us for pricing and to make a reservation. With any size group, it is important to make a reservation as soon as possible to ensure there is available equipment and room on our shuttles.
After reservation - Before arriving
Once your group coordinator has scheduled the trip with us, s/he will receive an email from us with more info and a Group Roster form. As the group leader, please forward this email to everyone in the group. We need to know everyone who will be on the water with the group, so all participants need to fill out the Group Roster form prior to arriving.
