More About raft building...

It's time to push the boat out on one of the most challenging and potentially hilarious team building activities ever!

Will it be plain sailing or will you be making a big splash on your next company away day with the Raft Building team building challenge! This is an epic activity that'll see you split into teams and your new units work to construct a raft strong enough to get you all safely across the water. Preferably without going for a swim!

On the day, you'll meet expert instructors who'll give you a quick safety briefing before you wetsuit up with buoyancy aids and helmets. Each team will get all the materials they need to create a makeshift raft, including wooden poles and huge buoyant barrels. You'll also get some stuff which could be utterly useless. Can you design the most watertight, buoyant craft? Will other teams keep stealing your materials when you're not looking? Will the new CEO end up going totally overboard and getting a face-full of river?

This is also a great way to see your teams' communication and problem-solving skills at work and discovering hidden talents that might otherwise have gone unnoticed.

The first challenge is building the dam thing (see what we did there?), but your team's biggest task is trying to set sail over the water and not sinking in front of all your colleagues! You'll need oarsome (sorry) paddling skills, and by paddling we mean while on the boat and not doggy paddle when you hit the water.

Raft Building team building really will emphasise team spirit, and whether your raft survives the float test, or you sink dramatically into the water, the most important thing is that you worked together to create something that could get you to safety in times of need.

But winning feels fantastic too, so don't let this one be a sinker!
