reunions, pa resortsI will let you in on a little secret: Woodloch Pines is not just for kids. Sure, it may be one of the top-rated family resorts in the nation, but young adults can also enjoy a Woodloch vacation. From nightlife to adult-centric games, there are plenty of ways for 20-somethings to have fun in the Pocono sun.

-Get your adrenaline pumping with a ride on Woodloch’s Eagle Eye zipline. Feeling brave? Grab a few friends and head over to the brand-new paintball arena for an intense (and messy) paintball battle!

– Unleash your inner Katniss or Peeta at the all-new Hunger Games-themed Family Field Day

-Waterskiing is a blast for the 13 and up crowd. See if you can get all the way around Lake Teedyuskung!

-After all of that activity, cool down with a cold beverage from one of Woodloch’s multiple bars like the Sports Bar in the back of the North Lodge. Happy hour is every day at 5 pm. Don’t want to leave your lawn chair? Order an umbrella drink lakeside from the lake bar.

– Fairways calling your name? Gather up a crew and hit the championship links at Woodloch Springs. For those ready to escape in relaxation, visit The Lodge at Woodloch for world-class pampering and rejuvenation. 

– Have hidden talent to unveil to the world? Wow the crowds with stellar karaoke performances, or join our musicians onstage and belt out a song at open mic nights!

-Fall is right around the corner, and that means it’s time for Woodloch’s cooking classes. Learn the culinary secrets of Woodloch chefs, and try your hand at whipping up some all-American resort recipes. Bring family and friends to join our resident wine expert in our wine tasting classes.

– Most Woodloch games are open for all ages, but on Monday nights, guests 18 and older can take part in the Bar Games, with challenges like flip cup and other college-throwbacks.

-Dance the night away at Woodloch’s DJ dance parties in the North Lodge!

If all else fails (which it most certainly won’t), don’t be afraid to unleash your inner kid at the game room or on the bumper cars. We won’t tell.
