Details: This retreat is a duplicate of our winter ski retreat, except that we go white water rafting on Saturday. We will stay at the same Comfort Inn in LaValle, MD. There will be time for swimming at the hotel. We will do a youth group meeting on Friday night, Saturday night, and Sunday morning. All meals are provided, except for post-rafting on Saturday afternoon and evening fast food dinner on the way back to the hotel.

We will be rafting the Lower Youghiogheny River with Laurel Highlands Adventure company in Ohiopyle PA. Rafting is not as advanced as the New River when we go to Fuel Camp, so we are only offering the whitewater rafting option for this trip. There will be no slow river or stay back option. Everyone is required to wear life jackets and helmets and professional guides will be with us.
