YMCA Camp Bernie strives for continual curriculum growth and development, and after many months of discussion and planning, we are pleased to announce that starting in the spring of 2013, schools and rental groups will be able to select raft building as a teambuilding and adventure class during their trip.
 
This class is designed with the goal of promoting teamwork, planning and communication skills; perfectly complimenting our existing challenge course and teambuilding activities. The basic premise is that participants will work together to build a raft that will float and be steered around our pond course. There will be designated planning and practice time as each learning group grapples with the best possible raft building methods.
 
Each learning group will be given the following components to use in their raft construction: 55 gallon drums, 1”x6” lumber, and rope. Depending on the size of the class, 2, 3 or 4 rafts will be built, each by a different group, thus adding an element of friendly competition. The amount of instructor input on design and construction will depend on individual group requests. This class is weather dependent and can easily cater to groups from middle school through corporate adult retreats. We are excited for the first chance to deliver this program, so hopefully there is a group in our near future that will opt to add this to their itinerary.
 
Build it well or you are likely to get wet!
