Get away for a short trip with the guys and create unforgettable moments in the great outdoors with friends new and old.

We arrive in the evening, for a relaxing night before the first day.

We start with a wild excursion on some of the best whitewater rafting on the east coast, followed by dinner and then a fun evening in an escape room and axe throwing.

After another restful night, we go caving in one of the deepest caves in the country – but with no small spaces, and no belly crawling, an aspect of caving that many are nervous about. Then we gather for an afternoon of shooting sporting clays with shotguns.

With beautiful accommodations that include hotel rooms (double and single occupancy available), provided glatt kosher gourmet meals (the food alone will be worth talking about), minyanim with the group, an indoor pool, hot tub, and fitness center, as well as an outdoor gas fire pit, this is an opportunity to enjoy epic outdoor adventures in comfort and in style.

Work and Family Friendly Trip

Those interested in maximizing work time and/or family time can take off only 2 days of work. It starts by leaving after work on 5/9, and by leaving early on the morning of 5/12, you can be back at work only 2 days later (missing only 5/10 and 5/11), and back with your family that evening.

No Shabbos away from home, just a quick, mid-week get away for men only.



Want to turn this into a teambuilding/leadership seminar for work? There are optional teambuilding and leadership workshops during the event, led by international speaker Ari Gunzburg. Pre-registration required.


Frequently Asked Questions

It might be! Included in the price is the rental of a wetsuit, if necessary, or if you decide you want to wear it. We’ll make an official recommendation on the day of and let everyone know about the recommendation.


Whitewater rafting happens rain or shine. All of the other activities, other than the sporting clays, are indoors. If you join us for the optional hiking on Thursday, and it is raining, it is actually a beautiful time to go hiking (just don’t wear cotton!).


We’ll send out a more complete list as it gets closer. But at its most basic, you will need comfortable non-cotton clothes and shoes that can get dirty and support your ankles (caving), lights (headlamps and flashlights), water shoes (available for rent or purchase there), and a bathing suit to have fun. If you need some of the gear we can help.


Only you can answer that! Your experience will have everything to do with how you decide to experience the event. But every person we’ve dealt with before has had a blast on various excursions run by JTreks, even when things don’t go exactly as planned.
