Home to the world’s largest manmade whitewater river, the U.S. National Whitewater Center (USNWC) in Charlotte, North Carolina, offers something for every group member. The center is set on 1,300 acres and features more than 30 land and water attractions.
“Groups should visit the USNWC for a unique outdoor venue that offers engaging space to learn, play and relax all in one place,” said Mel Kelly, director of business development at U.S. National Whitewater Center. “The variety and diversity of our programs and spaces allow groups the flexibility to create their own day full of shared experiences, much different from a typical group outing.”
Groups that visit the USNWC enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities for all skill levels, including whitewater rafting, kayaking, rock climbing, zip lining, ropes courses, a canopy tour and mountain biking. Groups can choose to buy day passes, which allow them to explore the facility at their own pace or choose a more structured team development program.
In addition to the more than 30 activities, the USNWC features several indoor meeting spaces and outdoor venues where a group can host a conference, a family luncheon or an evening reception complete with on-site catering.
“Our first priority is to provide a great overall experience,” Kelly said. “For groups, we would hope each individual leaves with a sense of accomplishment knowing that they have challenged themselves to try something new. We might be one of only a few places that offer the opportunity to follow up a morning business meeting with an afternoon zip line tour and whitewater rafting trip. Finally, we hope group members walk away with the desire to get outside more often or try other new adventures because of their experience at the center.”
The center can accommodate groups of 15 to 1,000 people.
