Raft Building

OVERVIEW Duration: 1.5 – 2 hours Numbers: Up to 4 groups of 8

This is ideal for large or small groups wanting to work together as a team whilst having a little water-based competitive fun! Equipped with barrels, poles and ropes teams must design their own rafts. Once the technical and safety instructors are happy with the design, the team begin their construction.

The rafts must be big enough and strong enough to carry the whole team and race around the island at one end of the lake and back. The real test to any raft is time – how long will it last? Getting wet is optional if you have designed your raft well! Even if the rafts do sink, safety instructors will be close to rescue teams and what remains of the raft. The sheltered waters of our beautiful lakes at A Day in the Country are a great place to spend a few hours raft building.
