Whitewater Rafting


The world-famous Lehigh River Gorge in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains is home to one of the most popular whitewater rafting trips in the country!  Here, Troop 71 enjoys a close-to-home adventure that feels a world away!  Awesome wilderness scenery and exciting, fun-filled rapids combine for a picture-perfect outdoor day. We laugh. We scream. And we soak ourselves silly!  Absolutely no experience needed!

The Adventure Campground at Whitewater Challengers offers convenient, comfortable access to Adventure Center activities like whitewater rafting, biking, paintball and kayaking in and around the Lehigh River Gorge State Park. Camping sites and rustic bunkhouses are just a few minutes' stroll from the rafting check-in area, food service, retail store, and other Adventure Center facilities and activities.

This trip is appropriate for all Scouts.  Cars are parked at the campsite, bathrooms and showers are walking distance, food is provided at the dining center, supply/gift shops and snack bars are on site and evening activities and entertainment are available.
