Raft Building focuses on group dynamics, communication skills, and leadership. The group is presented with the challenge of building rafts with limited resources. The group will be split in to teams. Teams must work together, on all stages, from selecting their materials, to designing, building, and finally paddling their rafts. Each team will have a few minutes to select the equipment and materials they think they will need to complete the task of building an unsinkable raft big enough and strong enough to maneuver the team through a slalom course at cruising speed. This challenge requires creativity, initiative, and teamwork. Then comes the big crunch… will it float? Will it stay in one piece? And will it get you safely down the river?! Or are we watching a rerun of the Titanic? But do not worry, if your raft does earn the name “Titanic”, the safety marshals will be close to rescue you and what remains of the raft.
