LANGKAWI RAFT BUILDING
Cardboard Raft Building
As with his more classic “brother”, this programme involves planning, building and then racing rafts in small teams but with an additional trick: teams can only cardboard and tapes…. Can paper float and take the load of a crew? Constructing a water-worthy vessel in that case is all about design and invention – coupled of course with a strong dose of cooperation, communication and team work.
Invention, strategy, and luck! Add teamwork, a beach, lots of unusual
flotation materials, tie it all together and you’ve got the winning ingredients
for fun and memorable teambuilding on a hot day. This two-part program
involves planning, building and then racing rafts in small teams. Teams will
be using items like barrels, inner tubes, rope and ingenuity to construct a
water-worthy vessel. The aim is to accomplish your mission first!
