Awesome way to spend the day with your grandchildren. I'm sure it's an adventure they'll always remember. Once they all get over age 9 come back for a Premier Whitewater Adventure on class 2-3 rapids on the Lehigh.

Everything was top notch. LJ was the bomb and gave us lots of tips for fun—thanks LJ! The food was good when we returned to the center. Everyone loved the ice cream. I think it would be fun to camp next time.
