Boy/Girl Scout Activities at Whitewater Challengers


Imagine the perfect combination of outdoor fun, adventure, discovery, and learning, all blended together in an environment steeped in Boy Scouting and Girl Scouting values. That’s what you’ll find on each of our specially scheduled Scout Raft Rally Weekends. Scouts of every age and experience level will enjoy an Adventure Camp outing that builds confidence, fosters success, and renews enthusiasm for Scouting.

Whitewater Rafting is at the core of our adventure program, but you can also enjoy Mountain Biking, Paintball, ZipLine Adventures, Overnight Camping, Meal Packages, and a host of evening programs and entertainment like Nature Shows, Living History Programs, and Games and Competitions.  Check out our Favorite Itineraries, or put together a Customized Package.  You can also make your trip a District or Council Outing, or make it a Fund Raiser for Scouting!  We'll do all the work, so you can sit back, enjoy the weekend, and reap the rewards!

Oh, and don't forget our Free Whitewater/Scouting T-shirt offer ... absolutely free for everyone in your unit when you raft on Sunday! 


We hope you’ll join us this season, for a day, a weekend, or a week of sheer outdoor exhilaration! However long your stay, the Adventure Camp experience is one that will earn high praise from your leaders and youngsters alike!  Be sure to ask for our Scouting Adventure DVD to share with your leaders, and other troops in your District or service unit.  You should also encourage all of your scouts and leaders to watch our Safety Video and earn a special Safety Certificate by taking the Whitewater Challengers Safety Quiz.  It's fun, and it's a great way to help make sure everyone's really prepared for their whitewater rafting trip!

2015 Scout Raft Rally Trips on the Lehigh River


Our Scout Rafting Trips range from relatively mild to very exciting.  The differences between Trips #1, #2A, #2B and #3 have to do with changes in river flows and changes in the intensity of the rapids.  All of our Scouting trips are suitable for first-time rafters, although Trip #5 is rather demanding in terms of strength and stamina.  We look forward to joining you for an extraordinary river experience this season!


Trip 1 - Scout Raft Rally (Ages 5+):

Available July 4-5

This is our mildest trip.  It's a great introduction to whitewater rafting for kids as young as 5, and for first-timers looking for their first taste of rafting adventure.  You'll enjoy real rapids, beautiful summer scenery, and terrific swimming opportunities along the way.  For Trip #1, our breakfast buffet, a river lunch, and dinner buffet are all included at no extra charge!

Minimum Age: 5
On-River Time: 2.5-4 hrs (1)
