Introduction

After a short journey to our local lake your team will be taught the skills to build a raft to carry them across the water to the safety of the riverbank – and hopefully stay dry!

Our team of instructors will be on hand providing ongoing support and guidance and may even challenge you to a race.

Raft Building is a excellent activity with a multitude of benefits.
