Thrillin’ Thursday

Thursday it’s the time to build memories, to reconnect with old friends and create new ones with a day full of activities that will hopefully help everyone decompress and get ready for 3 days of deep learning and reflection.

Why not take advantage of the beautiful Sonoran Desert and learn about the flora and fauna with a hike? Or taking part of a golf outing? If you want to learn more about Montessori Schools in Phoenix, join our school tour at Desert Garden Montessori School.

If you are arriving late on Thursday don’t worry, you can still catch up and network on our Soirée at Aunt’Chiladas, a Phoenix icon!

Golf Outing

Tee Party! Join us for a round of amicable golf in a beautiful outing at the renowned Lookout Mountain Golf Club, This championship 18-hole Troon course combines spectacular scenery with challenging play.

Hiking Experience

Hundreds of hiking trails can be found in Arizona, with trips ranging from short, easy loops in the heart of the city, to multiple-day treks in remote wilderness areas. Take advantage of our group hike and spend some time in nature. Join in the fresh air and high desert scenery of the moderate hiking trails accessible from the resort. Walk with an expert hiker and learn about the local flora and fauna of the region.
