Raft Building  


 Logs, barrels, a bit of rope and some paddles… are you ready to create a raft that will help you to escape the shores of Lake Windermere. 

Design and construct your your craft in teams of four - 
Once you are confident with your design, prepare for sea (lake) trialls. 

When the teams are ready you will be issued with a rationed amount of materials and limited amount of time to create a functioning water craft. 

When your time runs out it is time for the testing phase, can your boat stand up to the rigorous testing on Lake  and can your team complete the challenges. 

Raft building and canoeing operate from the same site at South Windermere so its  a great opportunity to combine the acivities.  Our full day activities work out amazing value for money more...

Raft Build + Bushcraft Lunch


Have a ship-wrecked experience during this fun activity day based at our South Windermere site.
The first dilema is how are you going to leave the Lake shores using these logs and barrels.  
Together you will build a raft and then put her to 'Lake trials’.  Learn the skill of being able to light a fire using a spark and wood splitting, all of this helping you to create a feast lunch of pizzas or bread and other yummies!

Go For It + Raft Finale


This is good for those who want to be competitive!
Within each team you must decide how to delegate to complete as many mini challenges as possible. There are some more sedate mind-bending challenges and some more active orienteering-style challenges for the more energetic. Points accumulated go towards the final head-to-head challenge, building a raft and hoping it doesn’t sink during its water trials!
