Raft Building

Last updated:

Team Building

Try your hand at building your own raft – taking the finished craft out on Lough Bofin for fun or competition! This is a great team building exercise with plenty of fun and laughter into the bargain!

Raft building    Raft building    Raft Launch

Suited to corporate and team groups, the challenge is to construct a craft that will take your group out onto the lake – a good choice for a mixed fitness group as not everyone needs to go in the water or be physically fit to take part and, it’s suitable for all ages.

       

The Benefits

This challenging activity gives a great sense of achievement and requires creativity, planning, communication, teamwork, coordination, cooperation.

More info

Raft-building at Shannon River Adventure can be a stand alone activity or part of a multi-activity session and we require a minimum of 10 participants to run the activity.

We provide the materials which include barrels, planks, and rope. Teams must work together to design and build a stealthy raft that will take the team safely out into the lake. Our ‘Experts’ will be at hand to advise and assist and, on final inspection, off you go to enjoy your hard work.

For the river trip, we provide wet suits, buoyancy aids and helmets to ensure a safe session. At the end of the trip, why not end with a splash and try some pier jumping to celebrate your achievements.
