What is Raft Building?

Raft building with
is all about having fun and splashing around in the water or beating the competition. Using long wooden rafting spars / poles, large barrels for floatation and ropes, your team will build a raft capable of getting you around a set course on the lake.

To start your raft building session your team will first plan out you raft design on paper and then make a scale model of the raft before building your final design.

Once you have designed your raft you will then move on to building it using ropes to lash the spars and barrels together. If your lashings are loose and your raft isn't built correctly you're in for a wet session.

Don't worry if your raft comes apart on the lake as the
team will be on hand with safety cover to rescue you and your raft if needed!

Raft building is a great activity whether it's for a fun session on the water or for getting together for a team building exercise.

All specialist equipment is supplied for the session, a wet suit, waterproof trousers and a waterproof jacket and with a private changing room right on the waters edge, all you need to bring is spare boots or shoes and a swimming costume!

We did archery & rifle shooting with Mark in the morning. Was really good fun & mark was great, good sense of humour & all round great instructor. In the afternoon we did raft building with Paul, good fun, our raft was not the best so we all got a bit wet but all part of the fun! Would highly recommend

Brilliant fun raft building!

Our group of 5 children (age 9 to 15) had a raft building session in Coniston with Mark. Mark was brilliant fun - engaged with the kids at the right level, and it was the best part of the holiday. Would highly recommend this to all.

Superb again!

Returned to Coniston after last year's visit and booked in with Adventure21 again. Paul was fantastic, everyone really enjoyed the morning canoeing testing our manoeuvring and paddling skills. Next up the gorge walk, everyone out of their confort zone...but was the favourite of the group and most talked about that evening.
The following day, no escape for Paul who took us raft building which was great fun, coming up with a design, building and then testing. We then modified and were joined by another family and then really tested it with 10 afloat. After dinner Kety took us to the range for archery and rifle shooting. Great to see how competitive everyone gets (with creative barracking).
Thanks again to Paul, Mark and Kety.
