Raft Building in Padstow

Raft Building is a brilliant activity that everyone can have a go at. The challenge is to build a raft, float it and paddle it around a course.

The key aim is to build a raft that can carry the whole team across a body of water without falling apart. If there is a big group then we can build two rafts with two teams and have the ultimate raft race at the end of the building period.

This is a great team building activity that everyone can take part in. We can make it as hard or as easy as you wish, we can include rules and restrictions to make the challenge even harder.
