Whatever floats your boat

Program Overview

If the castaways of the S.S. Minnow only had a little cardboard and creativity, their stay on that island may not have been as long. You and your team will design and build a person-powered, corrugated cardboard boat that is capable of racing the designated course. After you build, decorate and name your boat, you will designate a Skipper, introduce your creation to the other teams, and perform a team cheer. That’s right, no good vessel was ever sent to sea without fanfare!

The Build-A-Boat team building program is perfect summer time fun.  There are roles for everyone, so everyone is engaged at the level that works best for them. Teams gather points for innovative ideas, involving everyone on the team, creating the most beautiful flag, collaborating with other teams, and designing the most beautiful boat to name a few.

Each team receives highly specialized equipment, tools and blueprints/designs for the construction of their very own boat. If teams collaborate, communicate and execute well the boat is incredibly seaworthy and reliable (more than capable of what they will be asked to do with them). Teams are initially surprised at the materials they have to build with, but with some genuine teamwork and leadership (and the best systems and plans) anything is possible! This is a highly engaging and “hands-on” challenge where teams are justifiably proud of the outcome, an actual boat that can do far more than they thought it could.

Build-A-Boat works great in hotel resort pools and lakes or any body of flat and safe water.
