Whitewater Rafting on the Youghiogheny!
On Saturday, Troop 255 will raft down the Lower Youghiogheny (the most versatile stretch of whitewater on the east coast). The Lower Youghiogheny River trip will be a 7.5 mile rafting adventure into the scenic 30,000 acre Ohiopyle State Park, which will start at the Ohiopyle Trading Post (171 Dinnerbell Road, Ohiopyle PA 15470) and end at Bruner Run. We will stop for a deli-style lunch around 1:00PM.
Cost: $120 per person for whitewater trip, camping + transportation. Does not include wet suit. Even if it is not a cold day, you will likely want protection from the cold river. If you are so inclined, OTP charges $10 for the bib overall and $5 for a paddling jacket. Payment for these weather dependent items can be made at OTP.
Payable by check made out to "BSA Troop 255". Please hand in check to Todd Rosentover or one of the scoutmasters by April 16th.While payment is not online for this trip you still need to register online also by April 16th using the Register button at left. We need your information planning purposes. Thanks!
