Raft Building

Lake District Outdoor Adventure Activities
Raft building is a entertaining way to bring a competitive edge to outdoor challenges. Great for larger groups that can be split into sub-groups that compete against the clock and each other to build a sturdy-as-possible raft with a limited number of materials. Racing the rafts tests their quality of construction and usually ends up with flotsum and jetsom! Its hard to beat raft building and a way of bringing teams together and get the banter flowing.
