Invest time in family

Overview

We all seek to invest more time into our families, but such intentional time is increasingly hard to come by. Camp Susque invites you to come away for the weekend, allow us to do the work, and you can enjoy that much-needed family time. The weekend is geared to all ages and will be a great fit for families with small children, parents with adult children, and couples. Families stay in our cozy lodges but we do have a few “rustic” options (winterized cabins, no electricity) for the adventurous and hearty. Please call our office (570-998-2151) if you would like to book a rustic option.

Chaplain

Each year we invite a special Chaplain to the Spring Family weekend to serve as the main speaker for the event.

In addition to the speaker sessions, the rest of your weekend will be filled with scrumptious meals, a multitude of activities, and the ability to participate in as much or as little as you like. Let us serve you!

If your family has food allergies and preferences, you will be able to list those on your registration form.
