Raft building can be done on many levels, from producing a raft to carry a teddy bear across a paddling pool, to a raft to carry the whole patrol across a lake. It traditionally involves building a raft from various objects, usually pioneering poles, ropes and barrels.
This activity promotes team work and cooperation as well as testing out the group's knowledge of knots and their concepts of building items from scratch.
As with most water-based activities, getting wet is part of the fun.
