WHAT IS RAFT BUILDING AND WHAT DOES IT HAVE TO OFFER?
Raft Building is one of those team sports that will build your communication skills, your team spirit and your resilience.
Your team is given the basic set of equipment needed; ropes, poles and plastic barrels. You then need to work as a team to design and build your raft. Once your raft is built, you will launch your vessel (which may or may not fall apart) and paddle around a course laid out by your instructor.
Of course, you will get wet, but how wet depends on how well (or poorly) constructed your raft is!
Raft building is suitable for all ages, with many Welsh Baccalaureate courses incorporating it into their schemes of work. Our raft building sessions can be tailored to any age and ability – so whether you are searching for that corporate team building event, or want a stag do with a difference, give Anglesey Pursuits a shout. All you need to do is turn up with a positive can-do attitude and a sense of adventure!
