Pennsylvania’s biggest outdoor waterpark is open for the season and has live music, lessons and competitions planned for the summer.
Tannersville, Pa. (May 28, 2018) – Camelbeach, Pennsylvania’s biggest outdoor waterpark, opened for the season on Memorial Day weekend; honored members of the U.S. Armed Forces and provided them and their families with free, full-day admission. The unofficial start of summer kicked off on Saturday, May 26, with the launch of the Camelbeach ‘Beats at the Beach’ music series and a variety of fun activities.
Jonathan Colon, a Marine Corps veteran, celebrated the start of summer with his wife and four-year-old son at Camelbeach.
“I’ve been deployed multiple times since my son was born, so I’m grateful for the opportunity to spend quality time with him and my wife this weekend,” said Colon of Hoboken, N.J. “Active military members have limited time with their families who are usually stateside while they’re out serving their country. Getting free admission to Camelbeach is a special way to make the most of time with family during this long weekend.”
Active military members and their card-carrying dependents, as well as retired members, are eligible for a discounted Camelbeach ticket rate of $37.00 all summer long.
Located in a picturesque setting at the base of Camelback Mountain, Camelbeach is packed with adrenaline-inducing slides and relaxing attractions for guests of all ages. Pocono Mountain residents and visitors can experience splashtastic fun at one of many upcoming events at Camelbeach.
