Scout Raft Rally Weekend Information and Activities
Our most popular activity. All of our rafting trips are led by experienced, personable, professional whitewater guides. Your rafting trip begins at the Adventure Camp where you’ll be outfitted with PFD’s, and meet your guides for the day. From here, our shuttle bus takes you to the river launch site, where your rafts are waiting. You’ll form rafting teams of 6 or 7 per boat. Here, your guides will teach you paddling strokes, and review safety precautions for rafting. Then it’s onto the river, for hours of excitement and laughter. Rapids like Triple Drop, Z, Staircase, White Falls and Pinball will leave you drenched and begging for more! Ordinarily, we stop about halfway through the day for a lunch/swim break, and we may make several other stops for swimming, relaxing, or just to regroup. At day’s end, the shuttle bus will return you, tired but happy, back to the Adventure Camp. more…
A popular sport in and around the Lehigh Gorge State Park. A magnificent 30-mile trail follows the river as it twists and turns through its scenic gorge. This is a converted “rail-trail” ride that boasts a nearly continuous, 2% downhill grade. Bring your own bikes, or use ours. Shuttles to and from the trail are also available. more…
An adrenaline-pumping action game that’s a real hit with families and groups. Scouts of all ages can enjoy our target range, and for kids 10 and older, our Paintball games are a real hit. Games are supervised by professional judges, and all the gear (markers, facemasks, camo suits and 200 pellets) are included. more…
