Build-a-Raft is one of our highest-energy team building competitions. It will ignite your teams’ competitive and collaborative fire as they work together to build and race their very own makeshift rafts, attempting to earn as many points as possible!
Using only the materials provided – which may include PVC pipes, wood, tarps, inner tubes, float rings, and pool noodles – teams are given a limited amount of time to construct and test their rafts.
During this building phase, teams can earn additional points by demonstrating exceptional spirit and enthusiasm, creating a colorful team flag, and performing a sea chantey in front of the entire group!
Everyone is actively involved throughout, as team members must collaborate to transport their rafts from the start line and launch them into the water. This dynamic event can take place in any suitable body of water and will test their ingenuity, creativity, and problem-solving skills.
Each team must identify 2-3 willing paddlers to board the rafts during our relay-style race. These racers must switch off with other team members and exchange paddles and lifejackets during each leg of the regatta!
After acknowledgment and celebration of all participants’ efforts, points are totaled and the winners are announced! This is a great indoor or outdoor bonding event for ocean, pond, or pool, and is perfect for any size group.
