Carrefour Team-Building Retreat 2020
Thank you for inviting kembali to design these experiential retreat options for you and your team.
This page is to serve as an outline for various options and packages in what a single day, or overnight experience may look like. Final itineraries will be sent once we feel aligned on the vision of how the experience may look.
Kembali experiences will follow this outline and be guided by well-intentioned planning, as well as weave in plenty of space for the unknown, for the spontaneous to work its way in by Nature herself.
