5 Unique Group Activities in Calgary

5 Unique Group Activities in Calgary

By Claire Lee

If you’re looking for fun new things to do in Calgary outside the usual cafe hangout, we’ve got you covered. Here are some unique activities you can do as a group in the city or activities with a different spin that you can try out! 

1. Rent a fancy car and go on a road trip with your friends.

Going on a road trip is a bit common but have you tried doing so in a luxury car, charter bus, van, or limo

Travel in style and enjoy the luxury of being in a fancy car for once. It will definitely elevate the experience of your road trip. 

Imagine rolling down the windows and blasting your playlist of choice as you cruise along the city in your luxurious set of wheels. You’ll definitely catch an eye or two. 

2. Give back to the community by signing up for a volunteer initiative all at the same time. 

Do something meaningful together and volunteer at the various charities and initiatives in Calgary. Go the extra mile by wearing matching shirts and going by a group name. 

You can facilitate play dates and help with youth career programs, for example. You can also help with animal rescue initiatives or plant trees. 

There are so many options to help and give back. It will be a nice bonding activity and it will even be for a cause. 

3. Take a class on something you’re not particularly good at and gain new skills as a group!

Look for an activity that a lot of you aren’t that good at but are willing to learn, and sign up for a class together. It can be something that involves your musical skills like voice lessons or learning how to play guitar, violin, or piano

It can be something sporty like swimming lessons during the summer… or you can try to groove together at a dance lesson. You can even go take a cooking class together, which is a fun activity with delicious results! 

Whatever it may be, the most important thing is you do it together and you have the best time of your lives. A fun bonus is that you get a new skill because of it. 

4. Do a personal project together. 

Usual team building activities aside, you can also try to work on a long-term personal project together. It can be something artsy and big like a mural at a town center. 

You can even shop for art supplies together after planning on your activity. It can also be something like a play or a dance number. 

If you need guidance, you can ask for guidance from the different acting schools in Calgary. If you feel like you’re all working towards a common goal, it will be a very fulfilling and amazing experience you’ll definitely won’t forget any time soon. 

5. Go on a field trip to an amusement park in your favorite character’s costume! 

Going to an amusement park or indoor playground together may seem like no big deal but we’ll take it up a notch by going there in costume! 

Whether you’re into Star Wars and want to go there as a stormtrooper or a Jedi master or want to go as a fairy princess or a cartoon character, it will be a great opportunity to dress up and take lots of silly pictures. 

It will surely be an affair to remember! If you want, you can even hire a professional photographer to make sure you have good quality pictures as a keepsake of your fun day.
