Raft Building


Sink or swim is the relevant catch phrase here, thinking you can build a raft is one thing, but knowing whether it will it sail is another? Participating groups are divided into teams that will compete against each other by constructing a raft; points will be allocated for various elements such as: safety, presentation, teamwork and originality. Competitors will be required to draw a rough draft of the basic construction and workings of the raft, which must then be submitted to the judges who will either approve or reject the design, depending on the safety and feasibility of what is presented. Coupled with this activity, teams will need to create a unique team identity and emblem as well as compose and perform a war cry before setting sail to their final destination in order to complete the task. Raft building is great fun and is suitable for all fitness levels. The only requirement is that the venue must have a large dam or lake (The office Koi pond is not ideal). We will assist with all the arrangements of finding a suitable venue for this event. Raft building is an ideal summer activity as water is involved and you may get wet, depending on the quality of your raft.
