Lehigh River, Jim Thorpe, PaI-llNovDavid Rosenfeld
Combined trip with AMC, good for low time paddlers but some experience required. No cost, but you will be a guest of AMC.
Hudson River, North River, NYIII-IVAdvTom Hart
Beautiful remote run with challenging rapids. Solid roll and/or strong class 3 skills. Early start as release doesn't last long. If you’re comfortable on the Toh it’s similar difficulty though bigger with many bad places to swim. Ends with long flat-water (long boat recommended). Planning on 2 days and backcountry car camping Fri. and Sat. night. Plenty of lodging in area for those who prefer more luxury. Whitewater Challengers has offered 15% professionally guided rafting. (Don’t book directly - ask coordinator for more info). Possibly Sunday Sacandaga for those who don’t want to get home late or think back to back 15 mile days is too much.
Lehigh River, Whitehaven PaII+-IIIIntChris Scalisi
Nice class II+/III solid intermediate whitewater, dam release, 8 miles, several interesting sections, features and waves.
Deerfield River, Dryway, MaIVAdvTom Hart
Popular class III - IV river, that begins with several class III rapids before finishing with three strong class IV rapids (Dunbar, Dragon's Tooth, and Labyrinth). This is a good first step into more advanced whitewater, but requires a dependable roll to avoid potentially serious injury incurred during a swim.
Lehigh River, Whitehaven PaII+/IIIIntPeter Nolan
Nice class 2+ solid intermediate whitewater, dam release, 8 miles, several interesting sections, features, waves. Group camping already reserved at Hickory Run State Park, Albrightsville, PA for Friday Aug 27 and Saturday Aug 28. Some folks may paddle on Sunday. Gear and intermediate level whitewater ability (like self-rescue) necessary, may be somewhat higher level than normal rafting release.

Ocean Surfing, Long Branch NJOceanIntJ R Ford
Come spend a day at the beach with your kayak. Basic ocean surfing techniques can be provided but participants should be solid class II paddlers, although a roll is not required. Some surf specific kayak demos may be available but plan on bringing your own equipment.
