Adventure: We will spend the day rafting the Hudson River Gorge with Whitewater Challengers. If you haven’t seen this incredible part of your backyard, now is your chance to have a fun day and meet other Trekkers! There will be opportunities for swimming and exploring a waterfall on the river. Food will be provided for lunch. If you have a peanut allergy, we need to know that ahead of time. This is an experiential trip, where you will be learning about all aspects of running a raft trip, including reading water and steering a raft.
