Some of the rappels are 100 feet.  Not a lot of strength is needed, but kids sometimes get freaked out by the height, but it���s only on the first one.  After that, they���re good for the other four.   I don���t know your son, so you���ll have to make the call.  We have all the equipment and the best rock guides in the area, so he���ll be in great hands and will walk away with an experience that he will never forget.
 
As for the tubing, with the full dam release, it���s not negotiable
 
If you wanted to skip the waterfall canyoneering, this is what it would look like:  Saturday would start with an open water kayak tour around an abonded castle in the Hudson followed by a high ridge hike, scramble and cave exploration in the Gunks.  Then we���d camp up in the Catskills.  Sunday is a waterfall hike followed by a swim in a local swimming hole.  During the two the hours the rest of the group is tubing, you could explore some of the local towns, grab a snack in Phoenicia, wade in the river and then rejoin us as we make our way to Woodstock for dinner.  If Veronica and Max (who I now realize you DON���T know) were to skip the tubing, I would take the four of you on a great hike in North South Lake or set up a fun orienteering course.  I���ve got all the camping gear, but you would bring sleeping bags and pads (I might be able to find some if you don���t have).   The other option is to just meet us on Saturday night or Sunday morning.  Sometimes having too many options is not so good, for this I apologize, but there has been a variety of interest that I���m doing my best to accommodate.  Feel free to ask away.

Hi Russell,
 
I don't know the other family and don't wan't to ask them to do give up an adventure I am sure they want to do ...
 
I am disappointed about the rapelling and the tubing... they would be the main attraction for me ....
 
not a big camper ... don't have any supplies .... don't know what we would do on Saturday, can you please elaborate?
 
Thanks,
 
Lisa
