RYE, N.Y.Rye YMCAs Teen Outreach Director Lou Caratelli is not running your average run of the mill summer camp. He oversees the Teen Adventure Camp, a program that certainly lives up to its name; campers are off-site every day, attending day field trips to places such as Six Flags amusement park, Splash Down Beach, and to top off the summer, a day long white water rafting trip along the Delaware River in Matamoras, Pa.
Its a laid back atmosphere where kids get to learn how to row in a raft, and are all given an opportunity to participate-they work together as a team to paddle correctly, said Caratelli of the August 31 excursion. Novice rowers need not worry; a rafting instructor is provided to work with campers to help navigate the waters.
The rafting trip is open to all members of the community ages 12-15. Registration is $100 for Y members, and $110 for non-members. The fee includes transportation and a picnic lunch. Those interested in attending may contact Member Services of the Rye YMCA at 914-967-6363.
