Raft-building is a hugely popular activity at Carlton Lodge. Groups are required to take raw material (ropes, planks, barrels) and construct a craft to paddle round a set course. This activity offers an ideal opportunity for developing teamwork and planning skills, as well as having great fun and most likely getting really, really wet. Sessions can be tailored to cover elements of the National Curriculum for PE, Geography and PSHE at key stages 2-4.
