Island Lake is located in the beautiful Pocono Mountains in northeastern Pennsylvania. The picturesque setting of this 550 acre property includes a large lake for our abundance of water activities.
In addition to the lake, the venue has an Olympic-size swimming pool. Campers can participate in swimming and boating activities, or they can relax on the beach with their friends. Art is located in a pavilion-style building so that campers can spend their creative time in the fresh air. A circus building invites you to participate in the many exciting activities along with indoor and outdoor flying trapezes. The pioneering program includes a 17-station challenge course, 2 climbing towers and the exciting giant swing as well as a zip line.
Enjoy your meals in a modern, cafeteria-style dining room. Breakfasts include a choice of cold cereals as well as a hot entrée ranging from bagels to pancakes to French toast. For lunch and dinner we offer a choice of several main courses, overabundant salad bars, fresh fruits, juices and milk. Of course, we also offer a vegetarian course with each meal. Meals would not be complete without our homemade desserts prepared daily by the on-site baker! We are able to accommodate all special dietary needs and the dining room is nut and peanut free.
Our campers are housed in comfortable cabins which include a bathroom containing two showers, two stalls, and three sinks. Each cabin has a covered porch and glass windows with screens. The beds are separated by half-walls, affording each camper extra privacy. There are cubbies and hanging space in every bunk with a dresser and an outlet next to each bed, making all of our campers’ living accommodations as comfortable as possible.
The venue boasts a huge, air-conditioned infirmary furnished with modern equipment. We will have registered nurses and EMTs on-site.
