Duck race at Camelbeach to benefit United Way campaign


Tannersville, PA — Ready, set, quack! Rubber ducks will be floating to the finish line on Sunday, Aug. 15, in a fun race at Camelbeach to benefit United Way of Monroe County.

The event kicks off at 2 p.m. at the Blue Nile Adventure River at Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark in Tannersville. Rubber duckies are just $10 each and everyone has a chance to win a grand prize.
