- Craft Beer Swap Party**
- Craft beer lovers - this event is for you! Try some new-to-you crafts brews and possibly take a few to-go to enjoy later. Do not drink and drive!
Here's how this is going to go down:
SWAPPERS: Bring chilled bottles or cans of craft beer to site 50. A large ice-filled cooler will be available to accept contributions. For each standard size craft beer you will receive a ticket. Those tickets can then be spent to receive a beer of your choice to try, or re-try as needed. Easy-peasy. Home brewers are also welcome to share your good brews. Please, no experiments. Labeled or easily identified preferably. NO "fake" craft beers like Labatts! We’ll be watching the check in’s like a hawk!
Cash contributions will be accepted for popcorn, or other snacks, and the ton of ice provided by the camp. No tickets will be sold by the hosts to exchange for beer. Beer contributors may do as they see fit with their tickets.
NON-SWAPPERS: If you're friendly and smell nice, maybe one of the swappers will give you a swig or two out of their bottles!

Your day begins in Jim Thorpe where you & your bike will board the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway for a 45 minute ride as the train swings onto the former Lehigh Valley main line and passes Glen Onoko, the southern gateway to the Lehigh Gorge State Park. While you sit back, relax and take in the outstanding scenery, the train will follow the winding Lehigh River for 25 miles, rounding curve after curve until you reach the village of White Haven. Here you and your bike will be dropped off at the Lehigh Gorge trailhead. Once at the trailhead, pedal at your own pace down the Lehigh Gorge Rail-Trail for 25 miles back to Jim Thorpe. Along the way, you’ll pass canal remnants, scenic overlooks and railroad trestles. Remember your camera. The many sparkling waterfalls provide great photo opportunities.
