2016 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!
