Team Building Washington DC Chocolate Style


Washington DC is a city rich in history and culture. Being the seat of the federal government does not mean that all you will find in Washington DC are stiff and formally-clad ladies and gentlemen. On the contrary, a lot of learning and fun is available in the city. The rich history, both current and not-too-recent is almost inexhaustible. Here you will find the White House, the Lincoln Memorial, the Capital Building, the Jefferson Memorial, the Washington Monument, the Smithsonian Museums, the National Zoo and the Old Town Alexandria. All of these make Washington DC an ideal getaway for team building adventures.


At Philly Hops, we let all stressed out employees in Washington DC get a chance to unwind and re-energize, and in the process learn to appreciate diversity – a pillar of the modern-day corporate world. The essential elements that help create a team that works like a well-oiled machine – trust, communication, collaboration, leadership and role clarity – will be developed to reap organizations maximum benefits through team building activities


An ideal and fun team building activity which you can get to treat your employees or colleagues to while in Washington DC is the chocolate therapy. It is aptly labeled as therapy because it addresses the employee’s need for releasing pent up pressures and stresses that the corporate world’s ways inevitably leads to. Yet, it is extremely educative and, conducted as it is in a light-hearted manner, it is enriching and lots of fun. What makes it even more fun is having the world’s favorite treat – chocolate – energize the entire activity. Using friendly formats, the chocolate therapy program enables employees to acquire and put to use the essential skills of cooperation, collaboration, business acumen and artistry in a very short period of time.


The basic element of the chocolate therapy is fun. A simple but highly interactive adventure, the chocolate therapy can have as few as 10 people or as many as 70. These are divided into teams of between 5 and 10 and in a period averaging two hours. The team participates in an activity that simulates the entire business process from initial concept all the way to marketing and promotion.


The participating teams are each assigned a unique flavor of chocolate which is then hidden away in a sea of other samples, all of them highly delicious and very creatively presented. The team’s task then is to identify its unique flavor and, using team members’ imagination, decide on ways of creating and marketing a new chocolate remedy. To cap it all, team members are required to develop a one-minute commercial for their unique product and make a presentation of this commercial in front of the other teams.


The chocolate therapy is not only educative and fun, it is also highly flexible. It can be held in a variety of places – in restaurant and conference rooms and even outdoors. Within Washington DC, your team will be spoiled for choice of a place for their chocolate therapy team building session.
