Improve service, inspire passion and boost performance.

The FISH! Philosophy
The FISH! Philosophy enhances the entire work experience, both for the employee and the customer. FISH! can increase retention, improve service, inspire passion and boost performance. Every attendee will receive FISH!ing gear, and will participate in activities which rely on cooperation, fun and ingenuity.
Graylyn Outdoor Elements
Graylyn Outdoor Elements offers a half or full day of experiential learning, which takes groups through elements of a challenge course in order to examine the problems and advantages of working as a team. Participants are challenged and entertained through physical and mental exercises.
Pirates of the Piedmont
Ahoy Mates! Set sail on the high seas risking life and limb (well, almost!) to find the lost treasure chest. Teams are given one hour to construct their boat using simple materials. The Captain and one other teammate must race across the Graylyn Pond in the fastest time possible without sinking!
Graylyn Scavenger Hunt
Mysteries begin and questions abound in a Scavenger Hunt that will test your intellect, your reasoning, and even your funny bone. Participants are outfitted with Graylyn T-shirts, digital cameras and a list of clues to solve while learning the history of Graylyn. Time is of the essence as other teams race to complete the hunt first.
Tour de Graylyn
Assembling a bike can be a challenge for sure. It takes patience, problem solving, and a group effort. In small groups, participants assemble brand new bikes. Each team is given everything needed to complete the task, with some fun extras along the way. Teams must then compete in the Tour de Graylyn race.
Geo-cache is an outdoor activity in which participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver to hide-and-seek containers (called "geo-caches" or "caches"). A typical cache is a containter containing a log book and/or items for trading. Geo-caching is most often described as a high-tech hide-and-seek.
