“Tall Ship Experience  – what’s that? 

It’s the big trip final day of the Sea Scout and Venturing Academy. It is available to attendees of the Officers’ Orientation as a pre-event option.  The experience includes:

  • Kalahari’s Gorilla Grove’s high ropes course of 60+ elements and 2 parallel ziplines is our substitute for climbing the riggings and zipping between the masts of tall ships!
  • Pocono Whitewater’s raft trip down the Lehigh River rounds out the day. Bouncing down the whitewater is the closest we have to ocean wave’s up in the Pocono Mountains!
