APPALACHIAN MOUNTAINS ADVENTURE
Rock Climbing, Rappelling, Mountain Biking, White Water Rafting, Spelunking
: Participants will do all of these activities in the Appalachian Mountains
of Pennsylvania. The first two days are spent rock climbing and rappelling in the
Appalachian Mountains. The second day involves the mountain bikes on single-track
paths through the mountains, followed by an evening of cave exploring. Finally, the trip
concludes with a day of white water rafting on the Youghiogheny River. This Class 3-4
river can challenge the experienced while allowing room for the novice. Each day will
lead to new physical and mental challenges. The staff will teach you the skills needed for
each activity. Don't worry if you've never been rock climbing or mountain biking before.
Most people haven't. On this trip you will learn dozens of new skills and gain confidence
as you complete each aspect of the adventure. Evening swims in mountain streams, a side
