Raft Building | Pennine Outdoor Pursuits

Raft building involves teams of people building improvised rafts, from logs and barrels.  It is great fun and can be used to develop interpersonal skills, and team work, or just having fun!  Raft building can be done as a half day session, or combined with other team building activities to form a full day session.

We start off dry, giving each group some barrels, poles, and a handful of ropes. Each team then has to use their initiative, creativity, communication and teamwork skills to design and build themselves a raft. Then we go on to the water and the teamwork is tested as participants find that completing the challenges and winning the race is not just about a good design: everyone needs to work together to go in a straight line. We can run many different types of sessions from all -out competition to co-operation based tasks.

We can also offer 'design and build' projects and initiative rafting challenges lasting all day.
