Event Type

If we get water Saturday will be a double release (1600) which starts to bring in some nice wave surfing and bigger holes. Swims can be longer but less bumpy.
Again, with water, Sunday is often an extra bump as well.

The Lehigh…. Our classic class 2. Beautiful, great beginner run with plenty of play to entertain the more experienced. Where would you rather be on a nice summer day?

Typically we run section 2 from Rockport to Glen Onoko on Saturday and the shorter  White Haven to Rockport on Sunday, but this will be decided based on interest and weather. We’ve had the hardcores start early at White and meet the rest of the crew at Rock.
We can even split into multiple groups or so one of the Class I beginner sections.

This is also Lehigh Riverfest Weekend with a downriver race and a party at Whitewater Challengers.

We’re camping at Hickory Run Group campsites and have a site reserved for Friday as well as Saturday night.
Porta Potties and no showers on site but otherwise comfortable, large sites (with showers and nice bathrooms a long walk or short drive or nearly flat bike ride away at the ‘real’ campground. The porta potties can be a bit stressed by Sunday morning so many might find the 5 minute drive worth it).

Food will be pot luck unless someone volunteers to coordinate. Contact us to volunteer or learn more. KCCNY will supply a gas griddle and some food.

Plan on bringing some stuff to contribute and helping.

Adult beverages are technically prohibited so plan on being discreet (like drinking from a mug). Final pro-tip. PA has weird beer laws. Plan ahead or plan on paying bar prices in White Haven.

DUCKIES: KCCNY has purchased a single and tandem ducky, super stable inflatable kayaks, perfect to get someone with basic paddling skills such as from paddling a rec kayak a number of times on a lake. If you sign up for a ducky, let us know if you  need a lifejacket or helmet. More details on our equipment page.

Bookings will be opened up by late July and likely much earlier once we figure out food.

Top image was actually taken at 7500 cfs. If that happens and you like surfing and holes get on it.
