Mission Impossible

This exhilarating activity is ideal for larger groups and combines the challenges of orienteering and raft building. You begin by navigating around the Centre grounds in small teams, armed with just an orienteering map, whistle and score sheet. Each marker found represents an item of raft building equipment, which is then later used to build a team raft. Once the rafts are built and the team members aboard, it is a race across the pond to the finish.

Example learning actions:

  • Be physically active in the outdoors
  • Develop skills in paddling a raft
  • Gain an understanding of water safety
  • Plan, design and build a water craft
  • Use a map to follow trails and locate points
  • Develop problem solving and teamwork skills
