- Whitewater Rafting
The purpose of this course is to provide an experiential learning environment to develop an awareness of skills needed for whitewater rafting and overnight camping. We will work on fundamentals of reading water, equipment use, scouting to identify river dangers, and running rapids. Course participants must know how to swim and can expect class 1-3 rapids. Take the next step in your adventure career through this introduction to whitewater rafting. The lower Youghiogheny River, one of the most rafted rivers in the East, is a great place to start!
