This is an expanded version of our catamaran raft building event where the teams only get a very brief set of informations and have to find out together with their team how a raft could be built. They then present their ideas in plenary, decide over practicability and viability to then put their ideas into practice. Subsequently the group has to get organised and put the material together correctly and according to their plan. Team related thinking and communication are essential as well as a talent to improvise and some good hands on practice.
Depending on time the programme can be expanded with more team tasks before they hit the water and try out their rafts and all the well-earned fun that goes with it. Each training part is accompanied and coached through our specialised guides who will also help reflecting and finish off with a feedback round.
The event is designed to encourage and promote project management, social competence, efficiency, integration capacity, mutual respect and last but not least implementation capacity. Never mind all the “serious matters” the event should remain playful. It’s about learning and deepen practices in a relaxed manner and surrounding. It’s sharing a leisurly time together and a good deal of laughter that form a close-knit team.
