Raft Building

Barrels, planks, ropes and water are the recipe for a thorough soaking and great fun when building a raft.

Barrels, planks, ropes and water are the recipe for a thorough soaking and great fun in this activity and with the sheltered waters of the Forth and Clyde Canal.

You’re guaranteed a great session with this activity and it is an ideal team challenge for large groups of adults or children. With the aim to build a raft and put it to the test to see if it floats, you will be equipped with buoyancy aids, helmets and paddles, and given a short time to design your raft. Once your team have agreed on the design, construction can begin with a selection of materials being plastic barrels, long and short poles, and not forgetting the all important rope.

The rafts must be big enough and strong enough to carry the whole team through a series of races and games and back to the shore but, how long will your raft last?

This activity is ideal for all types of groups from families to corporate, with its team building and communication elements and is great for those who have that competitive edge!
