A raft is any flat structure used for support or transportation over water.

It traditionally involves building with various buoyant objects, such as pioneering poles, ropes and sealed barrels, or inflated air chambers, and is propelled by paddling.

 

Come and see if you can build and paddle your own raft across our lake without it falling apart!

 

This activity encourages teamwork, cooperation and problem solving, as well as testing out your knowledge of knots and the concepts of building items from scratch.

As with most water-based activities, getting wet is part of the fun! But don't worry if your Raft goes down, our Safety crew will be there to rescue you, and what remains of your raft.

 

We have enough equipment for up to 8 rafts... so why not get some teams together and have a Raft Race!

 

Come along for half day, full day or evening sessions.

 

If you would like to take it further, we offer a Raft training and assessment course that enables you to take groups out on our B1 class water. Have a look on our courses page to find the next course.
