White Water Rafting at Whitewater Challengers

This is one of theirs most popular rafting trips. Welcome to the world-famous Lehigh River Gorge in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains - home to one of the most popular whitewater rafting trips in the country!  Here you'll discover 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. You'll laugh. You'll scream. And you'll soak yourself silly!  Absolutely no experience needed! Your trip fee includes all guides, equipment, shuttles, and use of our changing rooms, hot showers, and other facilties. There are water fights between the rafts, we are opening this up to our group and NJ/PA/NY hiking group.  This event is a prepaid event, before signing up call Whitewater Challengers at (570)[masked] when paying please use reservation # 86203 and group leader #[masked] or go to click on Make a payment then click on Make a Payment On an Existing Reservation.

HOW LONG IS YOUR RAFTING TRIP?  it's hard to be precise, because trip lengths vary from day to day based on temperatures, wind speed, weather conditions, river flow, and the group itself. We usually say 3-4 hours on the river, and 5-6 hours overall.
This also varies from day to day, depending on recent rainfall, discharges from the dam, the effect of downstream tributaries.  On any given day, the largest rapids might be class II, class III, or in rare instances, class IV
Nothing is more important to us than your safety.  We urge you to watch the Whitewater Rafting Safety Video on our web site, and take our online Whitewater Safety Quiz.
Our trip times are strictly regulated by the state, so we usually can't wait for late arrivals.
We caution against relying on GPS or Internet mapping services because they sometimes provide faulty information.  Precise and accurate driving directions are available on our web site.
Flip-flops, loose-fitting sandals, "CROCS" and bare feet are not permitted on the river.  Old sneakers are the best, sturdy sandals (like TEVA's) are acceptable.
Leave dry clothes and towels in your car. Don't take in your raft any valuables. Car keys may be left at the Rafting Center.
WHAT TO WEAR & BRING:  You will get wet. On warmer days a swim suit or T-shirt and shorts are fine. In cooler weather a windbreaker is useful.  Avoid cotton, especially sweat shirts and sweat pants, which will make you colder.  Sunscreen and a visor or brimmed hat are always a good idea.  
RIVER LUNCHES:  At the lehigh, you're welcome to bring a light lunch (no alcohol, glass bottles or coolers) or you can order box lunches in advance, at a discount from us 2 days before your trip
