Team Build Options

Water Activites

We can offer team building water activities including paddling trips, from half-day to multi-day. Choose the time you want to paddle for including a taster paddling session with the option of longer journeys to our secluded woodland. You can also take part in team games on the water. It's all a bit different from the usual working day and office environment.

Our range of watersports activities allows you to mix and match 2-3 activities offering an adventure paddling journey by canoes, kayaks, or SUP’s, We can also organise canoe or kayak racing, raft building challenges and other watersports for your event.

Raft building is a great team-building activity for corporate groups and events. We have raft building kits with large plastic barrels, spars, and plenty of rope. This provides a great team challenge with groups either working to the clock or with a structured session. We also have wetsuits and all the necessary kit for the test pilots to race.

Canoe Trail has two Giant SUP XL Boards which make for a great fun team building activities for corporate events and groups. Teams of 6 or 8 can paddle them around a slalom course or race them on flat water. Racing on the Giant SUP’s is usually competitive and a great laugh with teams working together to paddle forward, turn and race a course.


Overcome different challenges and problems, including simple rope bridges, commando crossings, Tyrolean single ropes, and various scrambling and balancing challenges. We also provide archery, and can organise a mini archery competition. Some companies opt for a night in our woodland campsite as part of their adventure.

Try simple bushcraft challenges from Kelly Kettles to shelter building and our infamous river crossing challenge. We have infinite possibilities on our low ropes course as we set it up in our woodland each time.

Corporate Residential Events: Some of our corporate events opt for a night in our woodland campsite as part of their adventure. We also provide options for local accommodation including the lodges at Clophill Heritage Trust and some other unique settings. Just let us know and we will sort it.

Provision of Camping Equipment: Canoe Trail has a broad range of camping equipment and tents including our popular tepees which accommodate 8-10 people in a traditional wigwam style tent. You can opt to have your tents erected and kit delivered for an additional charge. We can provide Woodland movies using our generator and projector set up with popcorn available on the open fire.

We can provide yummy food options with free-range meat and goodies supplied from our local farm shop. There are also local restaurants either on the river bank or close by. You can use our industrial sized campfire grills and dutch ovens for a campfire BBQ.

Through our sister company Inspired Life, we have access to over 50 inspirational speakers including Olympians, Paralympians, adventurers, and artists.
