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!

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 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!
