ENCOUNTER is a week-long adventure for junior high and senior high youth. Encounter is a blend of resident camp accommodations with an off-site adventure. ENCOUNTER will introduce you to outdoor activities and test those skills with fun challenges throughout the week. We will hike, climb, zip line, swim, and camp among other great activities. The highlight of this trip is a 7 1/2 mile raft down class III and IV rapids on the Lower Yough in the Ohiopyle State Park.
There are 14 spaces available to girls and boys.
“Always in the big woods when you leave familiar ground and step off alone into a new place there will be, along with the feelings of curiosity and excitement, a little nagging of dread. It is the ancient fear of the Unknown, and it is your first bond with the wilderness you are going into.” ~ Wendell Berry
