Boy Scout and Girl Scout Programs on the Hudson River
Thousands of Scouts from New England to the Mid-Atlantic states joined us for whitewater rafting, camping and other adventure programs last year. And like prior years, they told us…
“Best Scout outing of the year!”
“Great event. Well organized. Terrific weekend!”
“Rafting rules! We’ll be back!”
“Thanks for making it such fun for the leaders, too!”
The Hudson River offers challenging rapids and spectacular wilderness scenery … a terrific combination for Boy Scouts seeking a Rocky Mountain – style adventure getaway. Come just for the day, or choose one of our wilderness packages, including up to 4, 5 or 6 days of rafting, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, camping and exploring the incredible Adirondack wilderness. Either way, you and your Scouts will discover a whole new world of fun and adventure. Your visit will include:
- Whitewater guides and instruction
- All boating equipment and shuttles
- Certificate of achievement
- Complimentary whitewater patch for each Scout
- Wet suit rentals (included with each trip)
- Optional fee-camping opportunities nearby.
- Our unwavering commitment to safety. We look forward to sharing our rivers, our insights and our expertise with you and your Scouts this season.
After your trip, you’re welcome to stay for a free sit–down dinner at our Rafting Center!
Merit Badge Opportunities
Let us know in advance if some or all of your Boy Scouts plan to work toward the Whitewater Boy Scout Merit Badge. We can provide extra materials and assistance and help you satisfy a number of the requirements during your visit.
