2 ½ Hours, including post-simulation facilitation
Decide the fate of a young United States as you take on a leadership role in 1790s Philadelphia.
Players will step into the shoes of President George Washington, his cabinet, foreign diplomats, members of Congress, Native American leaders, and the press.
Faced with domestic and international crises during George Washington’s second-term as president, players will work together to communicate, persuade, and decide on a course of action. New information is received in real-time and the group must quickly adapt in response to a changing environment.
This immersive, 75-minute team-building experience is based on real events that help players become better communicators, problem solvers, and leaders as they grapple with the same issues as our nation’s founders.
Inside our Be Washington theater, players are presented with a moment of crisis during George Washington’s military or presidential career.
Each player becomes George Washington as they choose from among several options to resolve the conflict. To help make their decision, they’ll hear from advisers that are based on real-life historical figures.
At the end of gameplay, participants will decide how to act, then see which choices other players — and George Washington — made.
Take a guided tour of George Washington’s estate. Walk through the first president’s Mansion and see the first president’s tomb.
The group can also tour our reconstructed gristmill and distillery, where we process grains from Mount Vernon and make George Washington’s whiskey using 18th-century techniques.
Whiskey tasting opportunities are available upon request.
