@mommychelle_23 and this little cutie spent a sunny day at Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark. The outdoor oasis is open through Labor Day Weekend, but our indoor waterpark resorts are open all year long.

We'll say that's slightly more rewarding than an indoor spin class. Take to the trails like @1tontomato and enjoy the ride.

Ever use a stand-up paddleboard? Adventurer @tnunny35 tried his out in Jim Thorpe. You can rent SUPs at multiple locations in the Pocono Mountains.

How relaxing! @bunny.barb posted this photo from Lacawac Sanctuary in Wayne County. Lakes and waterfalls abound in the Northern Pocono Mountains.
