Raft Building

Barrels, planks, ropes and water are a recipe for a thorough soaking and great fun.

Using sheltered waters on the river Wye or Usk, you and your group will spend a few hours working in teams to build your own raft before competing against one another.

Your instructor will give you time to design and construct your raft, they may even give a few pointers along the way, then your hard work will be put to the test in a series of water competitions. Will your raft make it through the first race or will it earn the nickname 'Titanic'?

Raft building is a fun and competitive group activity that gets everyone involved and yes, you're all going to get totally wet!  

This activity is a half day activity lasting 2-3 hours or if you wants to make a real day of it, why not combine it with another great activity such as Archery, Canoeing, Clay Shooting, or the High Level Ropes Course & Zip Line.
