Another great river is the Delaware, on the New Your and Pennsylvania border. There are many great 5 - 6 mile segments that you can put awsome river trips together on. Great camping on the banks at NYC'c Ten Mile River Scout Camp. Lander's canoe/kayak rentals provides a scout discount on boats which come with PFD's, dry bags and instruction, and more camping spots at their many lean-to spots. plus, they shuttle you to where ever you start and finish.Water is always moving, with many rapids that the scouts LOVE. Be careful in the Spring though, high, rough water can be dangerous. We go in the fall, 2 or 3rd. week in September. We make it a manditory parent/son trip. Parents do all the cooking so that they get to learn about and use the troop gear. And yes, some boys have only a single parent with other children in the house, so old guys, like me, whose sons are long gone, provide the adult partner in the canoe. But you know what, the parents and sons LOVE it. We (the TC) then hook 'em and got'em!!!
