Raft Building Team Activity
Raft building requires everyone to work together to come up with a design for their barrels, wood and rope. They then build the design and put it on the water to test out its capabilities. This is always lots of fun and with larger groups more than one raft can be built which enables races, tugs of war and other variations.

Raft Building is great team building event for large groups and groups of families to work together to produce a strong, streamlined and most importantly bouyant raft. Our instructors will give tips along the way on using the most efficient knotts and getting everybody involved. The levels of appreciation of the hot chocolate we provide, may vary depending on whether your raft collapsed and threw your group into the water or not!

What do we do in a typical Raft Building session
Raft building sessions involve a team competition with each team being allowed to decide their own design and rope tying techniques. This can be controlled by our instructors to include either tips or specific direction to ensure a well built raft as per the group organisers wishes. The rafts and teams are then put through a series of challenges for strength, speed and agility.
All our outdoor activity sessions include elements of fun, learning new skills, going on a journey, adventure and coaching. Each session will have one of these elements as its main focus, either because the activity naturally offers it, (eg. Walking a journey), or to tailor the session to the groups aims. Be sure to let our office/your instructor know if there is something you would like to learn, do or have concerns about. We will always remember that you are doing the activity as part of your time off and so your enjoyment will always be our priority.
Through years of experience providing quality outdoor activities we include all those small things that make your holiday so unique and memorable. Such as average instructor to customer ratios of 1:5 (so you have more time and are not rushed) complimentary hot drinks, and much more.
