Water Sports Mania
Exhilarating Kayaking and Raft Building Adventure!
You’ll have a blast navigating the waters of Blessington Lakes while completing a series of fun activities that promote both individual and team growth!
During this half-day corporate event, participants can paddle their own kayaks or sit-on-tops, share a canoe with a fellow workmate or even construct their own craft! But this is not your typical day out on the water. Interactive games, racing against the clock and each other to complete a mapped course, or even facing the challenge of staying afloat, will stir zany fun and friendly competition among the members of your group!
Our experienced team of instructors will tailor the day to your group’s varied skill levels, so that everyone will feel at ease and enjoy themselves.
Examples of Water Sports Mania activities:
- Skills Session: For a group with little or no paddling experience, we’ll lead some introductory kayak/canoe sessions, coupled with interactive games, in one of the lake’s sheltered bays.
- Canoe/Kayak Orienteering: CKO (Canoe Kayak Orienteering) allows individuals in kayaks, or two-person teams in canoes, to complete an orienteering course. Participants aim to locate all landmarks along the aquatic route as accurately and as quickly as possible, as part of a competitive, yet fun event!
- Raft Building: Groups of 8 to 12 work together to build a raft out of materials like barrels, rope and planks. They’ll test out their crafts on the lake while completing a series of entertaining tasks. How long will their rafts last before they start to sink? … that’s assuming they will! Find out during this hilarious challenge!
After a half-day on the water, your group can stick around Kippure Estate and continue bonding over food, drink and entertainment from an outdoor BBQ in a gorgeous forest setting to a 70s retro party on the dance floor!
