Welcome to Onyx Offsites and Trainings By Positive Adventures

We are on a journey to inspire, transform, and unify teams. In order to elevate the workforce more confidently and energetically, we created Onyx Offsites and Trainings.

We have a rich history, making a difference for teams for more than 20 years. Our mission defines why we exist:

To create meaningful culture, connection, and change.

"Onyx is embedded into the needs of humanity and aims to find nurturing and supportive ways of learning and growing. While the pandemic created upheaval in the home and workforce, and as such we have adapted as well. We have long been a part of outdoor training and retreats and the time was demanding we rise to the challenge in support of our community."
