Improvised rafting allows the group to develop cohesion through constructing rafts from barrels and planks and then
sailing/rowing them across the flat water. Instruction in rope work and basic raft building is covered during this activity.
Combined with this activity it is also possible to teach basic Hydrology and methods of fording rivers. This helps to increase
knowledge of water hazards and dangers. Its a fun way to get people to work as a team and problem solve as a group. This may be
leader led or leaderless. The only guarantee is that they will get wet!
