PDT Crystal Lake 2019

August 14th-17th 2019

A team-bonding experience became a dangerous adventure. The PDT ventured to a secluded cottage on Crystal Lake for an annual Summer Getaway retreat.

They were warned… They were doomed… And nothing can save them.

Get ready for suspense like you’ve never seen.

You’ll wish it were only a nightmare…

A spine tingling tale

Off the highway and onto some steep and winding dirt roads rests a spacious rental cottage, hidden deep in the woods. Being so far from civilization, it was necessary for us to arrive packed and prepared with food supplies and enough drinks to last the duration. We were greeted with a complicated multi-bin rubbish and recycling process that set the tone for what lay ahead.

But it wasn’t all spooky stuff, as the team engaged in some heartwarming activities – including swimming, BBQs, silent reading, high-speed boating, corn-in-the-hole tournaments, binge watching The Family on Netflix, and of course, dance parties – any time, anywhere.

The days were packed with multi-course meals and refreshments. The nights were reserved for jibbers, movies, and watching the stars. An open-ended itinerary left room for reflective thought and collective action. Any sunburns incurred were met with edible face masks for relief. Overall, we invested an amazing few days outside the city.

This was our fourth annual Summer Getaway, and we all survived it.
