Out-of-the-Box Ideas For Your Last-Minute Summer Staff Party

By Bianca Bujan

While some of your coworkers are off enjoying time on a lake, or fun-filled vacations in far-off destinations, you're stuck in the office, trying to keep your team (and yourself) feeling motivated and engaged as you drudge through the long summer months, stuck behind your desks.

With all this nice summer weather, why not surprise your workmates with a summer staff party that is sure to lift their spirits! To help you brainstorm for the perfect summer bash, here are some out-of-the-box ideas that'll make your summer party sizzle.


Have A Ball - Take Them Out To The Ballgame

Who doesn't love a day spent cheering on your favorite time while stuffing your face with hot dogs and nachos and high-five'ing your friends? Take your team to a local baseball game, and you'll definitely score a home run with your workmates.


Escape The Office - Try An Escape Room Adventure

You're already used to being in the same room with your colleagues, so why not take it a step further and step into the escape room craze. Through an escape room adventure, you and your friends will be grouped into teams, and will be locked in a room, faced with challenging puzzles and clues to solve together to move onto the next space. This is a great way to boost team building skills in a fun and engaging way.
