On Sunday, we will be traveling to Jim Thorpe, PA for 4 hours of whitewater rafting in the Lehigh Gorge State Park (no experience necessary)! We will be going on a “dam release” trip with class 2 and 3 rapids (not the “family float” trip as we’ve done the past two years), so be prepared to paddle and work as a team! Liability waivers will be distributed June 10th…please bring this form signed. Please bring a brown bag lunch to eat during our rafting trip and clothes/shoes that can get wet and dry quickly (One-piece swimsuits are permitted, but NO FLIP FLOPS). After rafting and dinner, we will have an evening worship service and camp in tents at Hickory Run State Park. On Monday, we will head home after a light breakfast. Food and drink items to share will be assigned. Youth leaders are willing to drive youth home on Monday if needed. IF YOU HAVE A TENT WE CAN BORROW, PLEASE LET PASTOR TIFFANY KNOW J
S.P.Y. will meet on weeknights in July and August based on youth availability. Pastor Tiffany will send out a planning calendar for families to complete with their children’s schedules so that we can plan youth events on days that are conducive to the greatest youth attendance.
