Team Building Meeting Mix-Ins

We came out of our shell!

“Our nerdy and often reserved group came out of its shell and had a very open dialogue for paving the future of our field. Catalyst Ranch was just that – a hospitable and professional service combined with a zany and inspiring atmosphere.”

Dr. James PattonCenter for Rehab Robotics at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago

Brainstorming Playground

“Wow. Words cannot describe the awesomeness and creativity of this venue. I was here for a two day Rotary summit, and the best way I can think of explaining this place is that it’s a brainstorming playground for the creative adult. Think adult preschool environment. Awesome colors. Great, historic decor. Everything about this place is just great. I would definitely recommend it for team building sessions, private events, and meetings. It’s a great place to stretch your mind and imagination.”

Mitty,  Rotary International

Beyond Organized

“I knew this was the ideal place for a bash, but turns out it’s even cooler for a meeting. I joined 15+ colleagues for a day of learning, bonding and eating!  The atmosphere is so fun (love all the toys & candy) that it really gets those creative juices flowing. You also don’t need to worry about going hungry at Catalyst Ranch.  They kept our tummies full with an impressive spread during breakfast and afternoon snack time. Lunch was an option too, but we opted to head to one of the restaurants on Randolph instead. The peeps who work here happen to be total sweethearts and are beyond organized.”
