Wetsuits are a must when braving the cold water temperatures in April in Pennsylvania! Over 30 brave scouts and adults from Troop 58 in Ashburn, VA partook in a 7.5 mile white water rafting adventure on the Lower Youghiogheny River that included Class II – IV rapids. The frigid 45 degree water temperature was shocking to the system for a raft of voyagers who were thrown overboard during the adventure. The cold water temperature didn’t deter some courageous scouts from launching themselves from an overhang into the icy cold water just for the thrill of it! After whitewater rafting (and polar plunge for some) the scouts warmed up with a hike to Great Gorge and campfire cooking in the Ohiopyle State Park, PA.
